I rember quite a few years ago, some Wombat or was I a Numbat? Suggested 'Aunty Ita' should look at having a fairly central Wharehouse cum workshop for Props, Set Pieces & lighting, Audio or other Techie Gear. That can be on a crosshire agreement between member Ameatre Groups. Which would solve a lot of individual Group storage problems & assist with the maintance & purchase of new &/or updated gear.
I'm sure there a few retired old Techies, with time to volunteer & to help out to fix &/or look after the gear!
It wouldn't take that much for 'Aunty" to apply for a Gov Grant to pay the Lease or rent.
