Urgent call for membership pledges
If anyone would like to help us get a 24/7 dedicated space ( See the Spacening 2016 thread on the [forum]) and is prepared to commit to paying membership fees, please fill out this questionnaire. We are on the brink of getting a space with the right amount of committed pledgers. Thank you for your support.
A guide to the likely amount is detailed in this spreadsheet.

Welcome to Surrey & Hampshire Makerspace
Welcome to Surrey & Hampshire Makerspace, a group of geeks who are trying to found a makerspace somewhere around the Surrey/Hampshire border. If you would like to join us, please join our Google Group, or pop into #sh-makerspace on freenode or Webchat.
What is a Makerspace?
A makerspace or makespace (also referred to as a hacklab, hackerspace or creative space) is a location where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital or electronic art (but also in many other realms) can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. Makerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
We meet weekly, on a Friday evening from 18:30 til late at Games Galaxy in Farnborough.
