We have a new number!

The Red and Black Umbrella and Cardiff Squatters Network have shared a number for the last year.

This number was cut off by the greedy capitalists at giffgaff in April after we sent you all too many text messages (even though we were on an unlimited free text package)!

The new number for the RBU and the Squatters Network is 078 4560 1239.

Look out for many more texts from us (until they cut us off again probably), and  shortly we will send out a reminder about today’s workday (starting at 11am) and upcoming events this weekend: KilnAboy gig – Friday / Folk, Garden and Art Day – Sunday!

We’d also like to say a big welcome into being to SubrosA,cropped-header6 the newest social centre in the UK - now open in Manchester. You can read more about them here and the family of social centre’s in the UK here.
