Day 663 - problem solving

Monday, 17 December 2012 5:30 p.m. by addingtonaction

Today was spent on sorting out what kind of buildings can be put up at 124 Garlands Rd as a HQ for Addington Action volunteers to operate out of.

So a lot of talking to people today, asking lots of questions and bouncing ideas around to come up with a simple solution.
At the moment Mike's spare bedroom is the office and storage is 5 loaned garages around Addington, so this is slowing down the repairs of uninsured houses because it is very inefficient.
