Lego Room Cooling 'fixed'
The cooling system in the Lego Room seems to be fixed. However, the control panel seems a bit wonky and, when the system is on, there are warmer and colder areas in the room, depending on the location of tables vis-a-vis the cooling vents. If you are sensitive to temperature variations, please wear layers so that you can adjust your clothing to keep yourself comfortable.

Our MN&N social dinners will resume in September. These Thursday evening get-togethers are informal social events - a chance for members (and their spouses / partners) to have a friendly natter about... anything really, over some good pub food and drink.
