I visited Bromyard Make yesterday:
they used to have use of a building in Bromyard with several rooms but
had to leave a few months ago and now all their stuff is littered all
over the floor in Nigel's barn.
I wish we had known about it last year!
They have CPC laser cutting machines, arduino, a 3d printer, welders,
drills etc etc and lots of knowledge !
Maybe HLUG could do a project with them over the year,
inventing, designing and making something useful to the community
.. but what?
