To Do


Veggies Van

Following the unfortunate clutch failure en route to the “Free the Primates” demo in December the van is now back on the road. The cost was £618

As the van has done 198,000 miles, and 32,000 miles since we got 6 years ago, it is scheduled for a complete refurbishment by the end of March. We have assessed that it is more cost effective and ecologically benign to get another 6 years from this van, which has served us well, rather than buying a ‘new’ one.

You can help keep Veggies on the road with a small donation…

- check & repair gearbox selector -Dean/not fixable
- remove 7th seat, reposition crew seats- Dean

- replace drive shaft studs
- check & restore electrics – Dean/Russell

Sumac Maintenance Group

The following maintenance tasks are yet to be done

Beech Avenue – women’s toilet window sill, fascia board above toilets
Upholstery surgery

Main roof – re-pointing to chimneys, replacing concrete tiles, possibly other things. Tom and Ben are interested, others may liaise with them.
Paint outside of building

Residents’ flat:
Outstanding bathroom tasks: new window with opening light over sink, overflow pipe fitting to the toilet, replace lamp on sink area, maybe extra lighting needed and monitor dampness.
Alan’s room – get professional to inspect the roof to check for leaks. If that eliminated consider heating/ventilation.
Central heating – residents check valves are all working properly. Check/bleed radiators.
Kitchen – replace panels in kitchen door and cupboard
Sitting room windows – wooden flaps covering the shutters need finishing
(Post-meeting discussion: Workbench in outbuildings needs removing thru window space before window is glazed – URGENT)


Sumac WorkdaySumac Maintenance Jobs Feb 2010

Residents flat

Outstanding bathroom tasks

* Install new window with opening light over sink. Tim is coordinating this.

* There was never an overflow pipe fitted to the toilet!!!. Suggest fit one while window being done to minimise mess.

* Replace lamp on sink area – current one is bust. Do after new window installed

* When we have done these we should review whether extra lighting is needed and monitor dampness to see whether a larger or over-shower extractor is required.

Alan’s room

The walls around the bay area and side of the chimney breast are very damp and plaster in places is breaking down.

Action. We need a professional to inspect the roof to check for leaks. If this is eliminated we need to consider heating/ventilation issues.

Central heating

Actions. Check valves are all working properly (job for residents really). Check/bleed radiators.

Kitchen

Actions. Panels in kitchen door and cupboard need replacing.

Windows in sitting room

Actions. The wooden flaps which cover the shutters need finishing so that these close snugly to eliminate draughts.

Additions

Paint outside stairs to flat next spring.

Paint outside of building.

Jobs To Do – Can You Help

The Sumac Centre closed throughout July 2007 to seriously refurbish the Centre. The results of this can be see in the Indymedia report by Tash

We are looking for anyone and everyone to get involved in ongoing works listed below – whether you are highly skilled at DIY or just enthusiastic!

Further plans are afoot to demolish the derelict outbuildings and redevelop a highly eco-friendly new building there. A visioning meeting for this plan was held in September 2007. More info below.

Fix bookshelf by computers to wall
Display shelf on pillar for Sumac event fliers
Repair extractor above computers
Get and fit curtains for bay window
Re-upholster chairs/benches
Laminate and fix fire instructions (done?)
Create storage under stage

-Toilets-

Shelves in accessible toilet to reduce dumping there and on stage
Waterless system for urinals?
Timer/PIR controlled lighting?

-Flat-

Air brick in bathroom

-Kitchen-

Improve layout of kitchen
Replace/extend worksurface over fridge
Replace cupboard doors
Kitchen/central heating boiler – service or replace
(boiler is actually in basement)
Replace shelves to maximise length
Display shelf over bar door

-Basement-

Heat vent, ideally to club room, subject to not breaking fire seal
Multiplugs in office & above work surface
Raise shelf above recycling boxes by outside door
Sort out access to ‘the void’ – steps into concrete plinth?

-Building-

Roof repair, gutter cleaning, flashing
Leaking pipe at 71 Beech Ave – Andrew on the case. The water has now stopped gushing out after I contacted the Letting Agent.

Outbuildings redevelopment

Plan is to raise serious funds to completely rebuild as a substantial new building, which might house:

* Library
* Meeting spaces
* Anarchist archive
* Sumac Office, or
* Relocate Veggies?
* Composting Project
* Veg oil recycling / biofuel project
* Residential and/or visitor accommodation
* Archiving attic (half a floor above)
* Storage basement (ramped below ground)
* Solar or turf roof (or combination)
* Straw bale construction

More ideas, including any which may have been suggested during previous visionings, should be submitted here, or in the discussion folder circulating at Sumac.

Recent maintenance has included:

* Reroofed outbuildings
* Fixed the Sebo vacuum cleaner. (It now works very well and there are spare bags in the disabled toilet. The dyson vacuum doesn’t work. Does anyone want to try and fix it or should we dispose of it?)
* Replaced the fluorescent light bulbs in the gents, ladies and above the bar.
* Replaced the blown wall light bulbs.
* Fixed the leaking ladies toilet. (The first toilet as you enter, the pipe from the cistern to the bowl had come loose, please keep and eye out for that!)
* Fixed the broken lock on the first ladies toilet.
* Fixed the ladies toilet that wasn’t flushing (The middle toilet – although it might now leak as it appears drip so will need further work later).
* Fixed a new toilet seat in the middle ladies toilet and tightened the loose one in the first toilet.
* Removed most of the junk from the disabled toilet (Lets put some shelves in there for more storage space).
* Fixed the big table so that it no longer wobbles (hoorah).
* Tidied up around the office computer and the piano.
* Purchased bolts to fix the remaining chair backs back on!
* Probably did something else too that I have forgotten.

Please let it be known if you would like to join the maintenance team, or if you can suggest any other task that would improve enjoyment of the Centre!
