GDPR compliance

Posted by E17 Designers

Lots of organisations you may have heard from already, sending you opt in forms, due to new GDPR (stands for General Data Protection Regulation) regulations and guidance on how best to communicate with customers. So I spent yesterday working out what to do, so we can send info to our nearly 2000 strong email database: on the one hand, we have built up this email database over ten years, on the other, we are breaking the law if we do not alert eveyone that they need to 'opt' back in.......


Here is the link to the email I have sent to all our customers. If you have your own database for you own customers, feel free to use some of the text (or google 'GDPR compliance') 

Our website contact email form, our link to go on mailing list, and also our facebook link to go on mailing list, have all been updated with the relevant forms...phew!

If you are not on our customer mailing list (I usually copy and paste your member' email across to keep it up to date) feel free to subscribe through the website click through button, you will see that on every page.

P.o.P!-People of Purpose Space to hire/share in Georgian Village, Wood Street, E17

Posted by E17 Designers


P.o.P!-People of Purpose


P.o.P! was born out of looking for somewhere to be purposeful and to make that space available to others trying out a project .

After looking at the not so affordable/inconvenient studio spaces , we found the Georgian village shops to be available& priced so you could risk trying a project.  Since October it has been running as a shop, selling workshops and making creations. It’s also used as quiet study.

We look to invite: People to sell through here &

 more members, on the lease it is named a shop but we are encouraged that as long as we are seen to be selling and have the doors open Tues-Sat 10-5

Thursday and Friday can stay open til 8pm if you had an after work audience/need to stay late .

So far the model has been split everything (rent/work)and prefer it that way ,a collective mentality. There’s a manager of the buildings but not this shop. We have to meet occasionally, but we have an email group for things like sharing the new toilet code info etc.

We’re looking for day members but it can be split between 2 of you doing half days.

So the costs and benefits:

£75 a month for a day a week

That covers :

day rent , leccy,water ,wifi, toilet cleaned and toilet roll. We got public liability so any workshop participants are legally looked after, you may want to read the small print to see if your activity requires anything further.

You can use this day to charge for your own activities.

What’s in the space to use :

oil heater , window space, hanging space and shelf space, of course we’d all make it fair so that you are represented . How the space develops is a collective experience so suggestions welcome on how we use it.

Bluetooth speaker, Also a kettle some lamps,tea cups and supplies. Bring your own taste in things, it’s meant as a base.

We have 9 chairs. 

·      11 can be seated with a desk space each against the wall. That’s comfortable but with the option to add more in the centre.

·      Fold down all tables to have a full open space.

·      There are 2 desk size tables stored underneath which  make either 2 separate tables or one large table in the centre.

Tables ,when folded down, have been designed to have a lip for tea cups to sit,so if you’re standing you have somewhere to put your drink!

Plenty of plug points.

Floor is made durable and waterproof,ready for action.

Large sink ,cold running water.

Some storage,not huge but x8 separates.

If it is for running groups, advertising and finding your people would be key rather than hoping for a drop in.


Popeastlondon@gmail is the contact and the Instagram&facebook .
