Re: A pop-up social centre/arts cafe for Edinburgh!

Scotmid IS a co-operative. If you ask at any branch they will give you a form to fill in to join. When you do that, everytime you buy something there, it goes towards a dividend which you get periodically. The co-op is owned by it's members.

Re: Urgent!- Broken Lighting Mixer in cafe

ok, had a look. cable to box is live. I couldn't open the input fuseholder, I suspect it has overheated and melted, so in the first instance we need to open the box and replace the fuseholder. Maplins will have them if we dont.

Didnt look further, but I think that may do the trick
