coFWD’s August calendar is a little quieter than usual due to Summer holidays but there are still a few events coming up this month. Here’s a quick reminder so they’re on your radar!
Monday 12th August: Tuttle 101
If you fancy an inspiring start to the week (or just need to feed your caffeine addiction), come and join us at The Deaf Cat for coffee and a chat from 9.30 am next Monday.
Saturday 17th of August: The Rochester Flea
Tracy Affleck is launching a brand new flea market at The Gordon House Hotel and has very kindly given coFWD a stall to help us raise some funds. Carl, James and Nat will be coordinating (and we’ll most likely be working on this on Monday evening at 161) so if you’d like to help, please let us know. We urgently need vintage wares to sell so this weekend might be a good time to drop in and see your Nan if you haven’t in a while! Any donations will be very, very much appreciated. More details on The Rochester Flea Website and on Facebook
Saturday 24th August: MacGyver Club
Bring along your unfinished projects, repairs, stuff you’d like to tinker with or something you’re making – from stitching and crafting to hacking and playing with electronics – plus any tools you need to get the job done. We’ll supply tea and snacks. There’s a £5 cover charge which is aimed at raising some funds for coFWD. More info on Eventbrite and Facebook
Wednesday 28th August: Seasonally Effected
On the evening of the 28th, Roy Smith will be hosting Seasonally Effected: A Cultural Open Mic at the Dot Cafe. These nights can feature anything from poetry, philosophy, music and story telling to short films, photography and stand-up comedy. On one occasion we even made tin foil hats. They’re always entertaining so we recommend heading along. Find out more on Facebook
And here are some of our coFWD highlights from July:
– Over 20 people attended Jelly. It was great to have the building full of old and new faces
– We welcomed some new coworkers and caught up with people we hadn’t seen in a while
– 161 now has super powered internet thanks to an epic rewiring effort from Freddie and Adam
– coFWD became a ‘green room’ during Homespun, Medway Open Studios and The Lit Fest.
– We raised £135 in a day of intense haggling at Greenfields boot fair
– We also launched coworking gift vouchers
That’s about all to report for now. Hope to see you soon!
