The magimix died

The cheapest option on Nisbets is this one, but Amazon has a few different brands like Kenwood that are much cheaper (but maybe less reliable?).

Re: SPRING FLING FUNDRAISER: Callout for Performers/Voluntee

We were talking about £100 in 1 pound coins and fivers for the float.
I'll help at the merch stall!
I also need to know who's gonna transport the merch to the venue and at what time on Thu so I can give them the ForPub stuff.

The fleeting cleanliness of our toilets

They are fairly disgusting, especially the Men's, and don't get cleaned as often as they should. According to the survey, it's one of our weak points. Maybe we should rethink the cleaning system. Any ideas?

Forest Publishing cupboard!

It needs tidying up. And a better way to store books so we know how many we have in stock etc. And a lamp. (I usually spend half an hour fumbling in the dark only to find out that no, we don't have any copies of Random Chapbook left). Anyone from Forest Publishing willing to take care of it?

Does anybody have access to a badge making machine? Yes? Can you lend it to the Forest (well, to me. I'll take care of it, promise) so we can make merchandise for the fundraising campaign relaunch on the 3rd of March?

Thanks for the work, Mike. The guy who tried to fix the router is the American who's been spending a lot of time in Forest in the last few days, generally being friendly and chatty and ITy. I still wonder how he managed to BREAK the thing just by trying to reboot it. It takes a lot of dedication :?...
