To all members using the CQ room and the Hall at Cook – there has been a change in the company monitoring the security at Cook Community Hub. It is now CXI – on the very rare occasion a member may need to speak to the security company phone 1300 798 365 and quote site name Cook Community Hub and site number 8609000 They will ask for a password and the volunteer in charge of the room at the time will have that.
The names of who in Canberra Quilters to contact when things go wrong – e.g. power outage, are on a list on the whiteboard to the right of the sink in our room.
For those volunteers who were unable to get to the November sessions some additional times have been scheduled. On Thursday 14th at 10am and Thursday 21st at 7:30pm Helen Rose will be in Canberra Quilters room at Cook to go through what volunteers need to know about our rooms. RSVP would be appreciated to Helen.
Due to A/C problems the drop-ins for Friday 18 Jan (today) and Saturday 19 Jan (tomorrow), have been cancelled. 40 degrees is too hot for just the fans!
The drop-in for the evening of Monday 28 January has also been cancelled.
SECURITY CODE CHANGE
The codes to arm and disarm the security for our room will be changing in mid to late December.
The lovely volunteers who take responsibility for opening and closing the room for our many get togethers will be notified of the new codes either at the Volunteers Supper being planned in the next few weeks or via an email.
BUT please note – only ‘trained’ volunteers will be notified. These are people who have been through a familiarisation session on how to arm/disarm the security, and what responsibility they take on by volunteering to help take care of our room. This is not onerous but such things as who to call and where to go in case of an emergency evacuation are important to know.
If you want to volunteer but haven’t been trained or you need a refresher Helen Rose has scheduled two separate sessions:
- Tuesday 13 November at 7:30pm and
- Thursday 22 November at 5:00pm.
These will each take about 1 hour. Please contact Helen via email or on 0410 170 176 if you want to attend. If these times don’t suit you please contact Helen and another arrangement can be made.
This Saturday, 29 July, is the day members deliver the items entered in the annual members’ exhibition. The delivery venue is the CQ room at the Cook Community Hub, between 9am and 4.30pm.

At the moment the air conditioning in the CQ room is out of order. It has been reported for attention. You will be notified when it is operational again.
The wall mounted power points in the CQ room are now back in service. Please report any further outages to Wendy
At the moment the circuit breaker for the wall power points had been tripped in the CQ room. Until maintenance come in to check it out the overhead points are the only ones that are working. Notices are posted in the room and you will be advised when we are back to normal.
Wanted Alive – the missing six chairs from the Canberra Quilters room. Without their return we don’t have enough to cater for the number of ‘bums for seats’ that some of our meetings attract. If you know the whereabouts of these poor unfortunates please report in or arrange their return. No reward offered, just our grateful thanks.
