Posted:----------- Spinning@... Update -----------

Dear all



we have moved to a new location.... se here for the new treead

http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/show.../o/fpart/1/vc/1





see you at the rag factory..





this is why we have moved...





We had discussions in the pub on Tuesday regarding the use of the market for spinning@spitz and thanks to friends we have a much clearer idea of whats going on:



Unfortunately we are not allowed back into the market for our workshops. It seems that while we have been out the market for the work, there has been a change of management. The new management appears to want to increase the value of the market area (gentrification is the term being used). This has led to many of the existing tenants not being invited to re enter the market, our selves included.



The stgeorges residents association would have had no idea we would not be allowed back in, so although annoying its not their fault. We still have contacts in the market and we dont want to cut out any future possibility of re-entering the market at a later date by kicking up a fuss, especially when there is no chance at all of us using the space in the current climate.



We need to do 2 things 1. Find a temporary place to play ASAP (see top) and 2. Find a permanent new home to help us move forward we need your help. Please think of the people around you, be it your parents, friends, colleagues etc and see if there is anyone who may be able to finds us a new home put the feelers out there.



If you find somewhere that fits our criteria (see below) then please get a contact name, a number or email and if appropriate, have a brief chat with them as a recommendation or personal contact makes a huge difference. If they are interested, forward their details to me and I will then chase it up.



We require an indoor or covered outdoor area with adequate lighting able to house up to 100 people on a Tuesday evening within 10mins from a tube and centrally located. We also require power to run a portable stereo.



On another note we have decided to have a Xmas party to raise some funds to help us secure a new spinning@..... s venue. The confirmed date is Thursday 20th December in a Brixton from about 7.30 pm to 1 am. More details to follow.



Hopefully we will get sorted very soon and in the meantime we will meet at the poet next week and maybe look at ice skating, bowling or something else there after.



Huge hugs



Kev and the guys at spinning@.... s

Posted:I'm celebrating the 4th of July, the day upon which my country liberated itself from the oppression of the English... by going to London and spinning things in circles (and not-so-circular shapes). Okay, so I'm mostly going to spend time with my girlfriend, who is now in Oxford, but on the 4th of July itself I will be at Spitz. Anyone want anything from America?

You've already let slip that you won't be working, are you just going to sit around in your underpants watching simon play world of warcraft?


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:Hello lovely, wonderful, ever so pretty, london spinners.

How are you today? you look very nice.

yeah this is probably the completely wrong place to ask this but I figured you guys are from london so one of you might be able to help me.

I'm coming down to london at the end of august. The place I've stayed in the past has put it's prices up by ridiculous amounts so I was wondering if anyone could suggest any good B&B's or hostels, preferably in tube zones 1 or 2?

Thank you in advance


One day i'll learn to resist gravity...
