Rules

Rules when using Pachamama space:

- Treat the space like your home and respect it as a community resource.
- Unless there are obviously other people coming and going from the building when you leave, ensure all doors to the buildings and the side gate is locked.
- Make sure lights (including toilet lights) and the air con are switched off before you leave.
- Leave the space at least as clean and tidy as it was found. Pachamama is maintained by volunteers, so you’re part of the team.
- This includes wiping spills and crumbs from benches and tables with a damp cloth, washing, drying and putting away crockery and cutlery, and leaving furniture as you found it. If you make a mess on the floor there is a vacuum cleaning under the stairs in the main building or in the kitchen in the Yoga/Training room, and brooms in the kitchens. There are also cleaning products in both these places.
