Your Raw Space Team ☺️
Space News 🗞
We have a desk share available for anyone that feels their hot desking needs fall in between our Silver and Gold memberships. You’ll be sharing with the lovely Josh (and Piccolo 🐾) and you’ll agree between you which days you’ll use it for and which days Josh will. It’s £125 a month (1/2 a Diamond membership). Get in touch with Josh or Emma to find out more 🪑
We now have 6 lockers available located in the Sycamore room and are offering them to any of our members. We require a £20 cash deposit which we will hold on to until you decide you no longer wish to use a locker. If you lose your key, the cost of replacing it will come out of your deposit. If you’d like to rent one, please let us know 🔑
We’ve been working on lots of little jobs around the space over the last few weeks to ensure it looks and feels taken care of. If you notice anything that needs our attention please do let us know ☺️
We know it’s only October, and yes, we’ve already booked our Raw Space Christmas Party 🎄 We’ll be heading to The Lanes on Thursday 7th December for bowling, food and karaoke starting at 7pm 🎳 Last year was a huge success with some incredible karaoke skills on show, in particular Ali’s “Ice Ice Baby” which went down a storm! Expect lots of laughter, fun, celebration and a chance to create some amazing memories as a community 💛 £25 per ticket, payable in cash to Emma.
How do you fancy a free lunch? We’re looking for as many of our members to leave us a Google review so we can continue to grow our wonderful community 🥰 The more reviews we have, the easier it is for people to find us. If you leave us a review, we’ll buy you lunch as part of our Wednesday lunch club! Top tips – use keywords such as meeting room, hot desking, office space and coworking.
A gentle reminder please that if you wish to pause or cancel your membership, we require 30 days notice. As a small, independent business it supports us to manage our membership numbers and keep growing our community 🌱

Wellbeing with Ethica CBD & 10% Discount Code 🌿
As we move from Autumn to Winter, it’s easy to want to stay inside and become less active during the colder and darker months. Add that to our already busy lives, and spending the majority of our work days at a desk, we can become less active and less motivated to take care of our physical wellbeing.
This month, the Ethica CBD team are sharing how Lord Ian Botham is on a mission to get Britain moving more and why it’s imperative to prioritise our wellbeing and move a little more every day.
You can read all about it here.
For our Raw Space subscribers, they’re also offering, for a limited time only, a 10% discount on any of their products, use the code XXXXX at checkout. (one time use per person on any product(s)).
