Space on Tap in Blyth

We've found two great spaces in the Community Enterprise Centre (CEC) in Blyth that can be hired on tap from 7.30 am through to 7 pm Monday to Friday and on Saturdays until 2 pm.  Located on Blyth's recently redeveloped Quayside both spaces have a riverside view, providing a great backdrop for meetings or a day in the office, and they are really affordable for anyone on a budget (who isn't?!).

The office/meeting room space that holds up to 5 people comfortably, and has presentation equipment available if you need it, can be hired for £10-12 per hour (depending on your needs) and is ideal for a temporary office as well as a meeting room.

We've also discovered a great meeting room that's perfect for training, networking events, away days and that's available for only £95 a day for up to 50 people depending on the layout.  It's a ground floor, really bright and well lit space, next to reception (so ideal for participants) and has bags of free parking literally outside the door.

We'd definitely recommend these spaces as worth a try. The Centre staff are really flexible and keen to please, so whatever you need just ask.

New Colleagues on Tap co-working Blog launches today

Colleagues on Tap co-working days have officially taken off!  We've now run 7 successful events since Space on Tap's launch at the end of June 2010, with another 5 days already planned by the end of May.   We've already co-worked with some amazing people across the North East region, each working freelance or from home, and all adding something to our co-working experience through sharing their knowledge, expertise and experience.

We've had great feedback on the days, the colleagues, the spaces and, it has to be said, the cupcakes!

So, to add to our co-working community we've now created a new COLLEAGUES ON TAP BLOG for all things co-working, and for those who have already attended one of our Colleagues on Tap days, or plan to soon, we have also formed a LinkedIn Group, 'Colleagues on Tap'.  This Space on Tap Blog will now focus on the amazing and versatile spaces we're discovering across the region. We are also planning to separate our Twitter accounts so we can give proper focus to the co-working information as well as keeping you in touch with all things space through our Space on Tap twitter account.  So you can now follow us on @colleaguesontap as well as @spaceontap.

Our brand new Colleagues on Tap logo!
So, all change for the better!  Oh, and of course we also have a lovely new Colleagues on Tap logo, building on our open door theme we've used in the Space on Tap branding - we hope you like the new look :)
