Partisan Work Day

21st March 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We’re hosting another collaborative work day with the University of Manchester volunteer hub! We had such a positive experience with everybody last time we thought we’d do it all again. 🤸🏽

Come along to meet a host of new people, as well as existing Partisan members. Whether you’re a seasoned work day attendee, or absolutely new to the idea, work days are a fun way to get involved with your community DIY space, and they continue to help us keep our busy and vibrant social gathering spot tidy, safe and fit for purpose. Stay for an hour / stay for the entire day! However much time you’re able to contribute goes such a long way, and there’s always something for people of all abilities and interests to get involved with.

As well as a general tidy and clean of the space, some specific tasks for this particular work day include:

– Thoroughly organising our art nook 🎨
– Dismantling the archway to the art nook and moving to our storeroom 📦
– Stabilising some of our more rickety shelving units 🔧
– Checking expiry dates on our fire extinguishers and documenting 🧯
– Deep cleaning both stairwells to our top floor 🧼
– Litter picking around the front and back of the building (gloves, litter pickers and extra kudos provided! Weather dependent also!) 🥫👏🏼

As always, biscuits, tunes and cuppas are provided, and any food or snack contributions are always welcome! We try to keep shared food vegan where possible to ensure it’s accessible for all, so please keep this in mind if providing anything for sharing, and communicate appropriately any potential dietary or allergen issues. 🍪☕️

**Extra fun bit!!**

We’ll be running this work day alongside our regular bicycle repair workshop, so you can service your trusty whip whilst you’re at it! 🚲🔧

We hope to see lots of you there ☺️
