Protests & free food outside McDeath

ASBO welcomed by community!

17-10-2005 15:01

Saturday 15th October saw ASBO squatted community centre on Burns St open its doors for the first time. The day was really successful with 50-60 people from the local community and across Nottingham stopping by.


The free shop in the front garden drew lots of curious people off the street, and some were flumoxed that they were not being asked to pay anything. People brought goods along, and picked up some really useful stuff – including a record player and an electric guitar!

Inside, “Broad Bean” internet was busy all afternoon with local children making the most of the facilities. We may be looking to put more computers downstairs to cope with the demand. The 'Kranks' bike workshop was a real hit, lots of people came along with their bikes and everyone helped each other fix them – a really excellent skill share session. Even a double-buggy that a local family brought in got fixed up. Ideas for future projects include bike trailers, tricycles and even bicycle-powered washing machines.

The day ended with a hearty meal from the People's Kitchen which had been filling the centre with mouth watering smells all afternoon. Everyone tucked in, and enjoyed chatting to their neighbours.

We were really pleased at the diversity of people who came to use the ASBO and hope that this day was just a start for a really exciting new project. We hope to have more and more stuff happening at the centre: look out for a 'Recycled Art' workshop coming soon. If you want to use the ASBO space then email us at:
