Dear friends, As some of you may have heard, we have lost the continued use of our current workshop space on Riddiford St as of 31 October 2021. Unfortunately it now seems unlikely we will be able to reopen the workshop to the public before we have to vacate the site. We have plans to hopefully open in a new location in 2022, but for the time being we must ask that everyone who has a bike they were working on in the container to please collect it. Please email themechanicaltempest@gmail.com to organise collection.We are planning to have a garage sale in the next few weeks so look out for details on that. Also if anyone is willing to help with sorting, moving, metal recycling or other moving jobs in the next few weeks please get in touch. We are especially looking for someone with a trailer to help us with scrap metal recycling! Thanks for your support and we apologise for the abrupt notice. We have had to respond our best to the COVID-19 rāhui alert levels and situation as an all-volunteer organisation. We look forward to re-opening in a new home in the future!Ngā mihi nui,Nicole on behalf of the Mechanical Tempest volunteer collective ... See MoreSee Less
