I am Tom from Hackspace High Wycombe.
We are a group of 10-15 regular members that have been meeting twice a month for about 3 years in the back of a pub. Recently we have moved to renting a hall which is funded by one kind member.
We are currently trying to set up a way of funding the hall rental from members but don’t have any experience in this area.
From the research we have done we are leaning towards a unincorporated association due to the simpler administration as we have no current plans to get a space of are own but are aware this may be a plan in the future. I have read that the HSF recommends a Limited By Guarantee company but we are not sure what this would involve.
I would be great if we could get some input from anyone that has experience with these things and what pitfalls we should look out for.
