Title: Moving date(s) - Saturday 9th to Sunday 17th January 2016
Post by: AndyRCM on December 15, 2015, 09:08:05 PM
Hello everybody,
Quite a few people have offered to help us move - this is a small shout out to those people and of course anybody else who wishes to help.
Just to confirm it looks like we will be starting the 'big' move on the 9th January. We anticipate this could take ALL week and more besides.
If you would like to help (in any way) please comment (your name and date(s) you wish to help) on this thread.
We will then add your name to the list below. All you will then need to do is turn up on the day(s) ready to help move some lovely precious kit.
We will announce time of arrival etc later on - but general rule of thumb will be 9.00am until you drop. :)
The committee and myself personally thank you in anticiaption of your assistance.
Regards
Andy

I have already taken the week of work, so every single day.  I'll bring a nice big empty estate car, I know it's only a few hundred yards away but why get knackered carrying it when it can be driven.  Who am I kidding, I'm still going to get knackered.  Oh my God! I must be mad, what have I just agreed to?

David

UPDATE
I will have to leave early on Friday 15th and Sunday 17th, I have to take the family down to, and then back from London

Should manage a Saturday or two  :)

Really PISSED off  >:( >:( >:( at work as I specifically asked for days off the 1st or 2nd week of Jan and was told no problem, now they have decided to send my Boss to China on Jan 9th for two weeks and we aren't allowed to be out of the office at the same time !!

Not a feckin' happy bunny at all !

Hi David, I have put you down for the first weekend if that is okay, I can add you to other days if you give me an indication of which ones suit you best.

I am sure there will be plenty of tea and coffee going free, just as long as someone is willing to make it  ;D

Jan 9th - Greg & medium sized van
Jan 10th - Greg & van (depending on my church duties)

Sunday 10th is definitely ruled out - sorry.

I'll make most of being there on Saturday 9th by bringing my medium sized 3.5 ton curtain sided van. Will be perfect for shunting a huge amount of stuff.

Don't worry, your family must always come first, hope he's feeling better now. If I'm honest, we did missed your shelf condensing skills today as we have managed to fill another 7 shelves.

Hi Stu, you're right that it's going pretty well and by the weekend moving out of the old building will not the issue. But there is so much work to do sorting out the mountain of stuff that we need to find a home for, that we still need all the help we can get. We have to get the new building fit for visitors, the first event at the new building is next month.

Unfortunately my wife Diane has to go to the GP tomorrow (Thursday) so has had to withdraw her offer of help and she is uncertain about Friday.

David

Update: Diane can not make it but my friend Jason has agreed to help.

Can anyone help please?
The Landlord will not take Unit S1 back in it's current state!!! We were hoping to sign it back by 22nd January so that we could get a months rent back (we have paid up to 22nd February).

We have to fill in ALL the holes in the walls and paint over them The paint has to be DULUX Magnolia Matt!!!!

Is anyone available to help with this tomorrow during the day if you can collect keys from Andy, and tomorrow evening.

We don't really want to forgo the rent we want back.

We now have until Monday to sort out the old unit. We have already filled in all of the holes and painted the main room. Still lots to do if anybody is around on Sunday? :)
Thanks to Jim, David, Simon and Lee for their help today.

Massive thanks to the RCM volunteers who helped us with our decorating issues. We are now 'FREE' of our old unit. It has now been handed back in the same condition we received it in. Signed off. Done.
