Hello Raw Spacers,

April is here, the sun is shining and it’s a 4 day work week. Spring has officially started 🌸

Highlights from this month’s newsletter include:

✨ new lights around the space

✨ another opportunity to join Carlos for his chocolate tasting workshop

✨ raising money for charity and having a giggle at the same time

✨ launching our new Raw Space Book Swap Event

We hope you have a great Easter, a wonderful month and hope to see you at an event or two in the next few weeks.

Best wishes,

Your Raw Space Team ☺️


Space News

We’ve been upgrading and replacing the lights around our space so that they are more eco friendly, and provide a warmer, brighter environment. Andy, our electrician, has done a fab job and he’ll be back in a few weeks to replace the last remaining lights 💡

We’ve got a snazzy new carpet in the kitchen to add a pop of colour and make the space more homely. The great news it that it’s washable so we can keep the space feeling fresh and clean each week 🧼

We’ve got a new addition to the Raw Space team – Erik, our hoover robot! We’ve been trialling using him first thing in the morning to help us keep on top of the cleaning and so far so good. We’ll see if the dogs feel the same way 🐾

Decoration of the front office is now complete and it’s been officially renamed the Sycamore Room. The space will be home to our ever growing Diamond members. Feel free to stick your head in and take a peek 🌳
