Re: health and safety feedback - for the building

the last aprons I got were about £3 each from Nisbetts, online.
it might be wiser to get BLACK aprons and screenprint them in a light colour, as they will look less disgusting.

alternatively, you could organise a workshop to make lots of aprons, from multicoloured whatever. they'd be beautiful!

Re: hole spacing and tables

it'd probably be best to take one or two of the tables down to the bunker or workshop. that way they will be able to dry properly, and no-one will mess them up, and you'll have plenty of space to work in.
