CLEANING REMINDERS

As mentioned in the meeting this morning, there will be a new list of cleaning tasks put up in the kitchen. Please take a look and remember to check the cleaning roster to see which day you are cleaning next.

A reminder to also please clean up after yourself outside of the cleaning roster. A couple of things to remember:

– Clean the milk foamer and any milk spillage immediately
– Wash up your own lunch plates after use
– Put empty glasses in the dishwasher not in the sink
– Put cardboard and glass waste in the right boxes in the kitchen storage
– Clean up after yourself around the office, try not to leave anything behind when you finish work

CO-WORKING SPACES AVAILABLE

Please spread the word that there are desk spaces available at Mediamatic. It would be great to attract other like-minded individuals into our collaborative work environment. Feel free to share this Facebook post or send this link to any friends you think might be interested.

Have a great week!
