Hi Chris

I'm replying off list atm

I have not yet been to Hacker Space nites which are in East London but they 
seem to be a hackspace for geeks probably in employement given they seem to 
require regular subscriptions and/or on-the-night donations.

I think HackSoace is probably doing good things but not sure it has the model
you are looking for with a community space?

I probably can't commit to travelling the distance from the outer edge of SE London over
to the Park Royal area but I would think that free useful space is at a premium.

It depends what you envisage this space doing?
