Saturday, March 16: Sustainability Fair (Repair Cafe}
Call for 'fixers' and repairers
The Fair will take place in the afternoon starting at 1:00 PM, at the Griffiths Centre. It will be free of charge to those who attend for help.
We are looking for volunteers who may have trade skills, experience of repair work, or hobbyists / enthusiasts who would be willing to help visitors to fix their faulty equipment and small appliances, repair toys, mend furniture, fix fabric items, etc.
The goal is to give new life to things we all have around the home that are broken, torn, missing parts, or just not doing the job they are supposed to do.
Repair and fixing is the aim, along with a bit of education for the younger generations, rather than just adding to landfill and the expense of replacing still potentially serviceable items.
Do you know and have the skills needed to assist the public to try to fix their faulty or much loved things needing a bit of tender loving care and attention.
If you think you have some skills you can pass on to those in the community without the knowledge needed, and might be willing to share to help out, please contact:
Ken Dutton, via e-mail in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org
and he'll be delighted to give you more details and how the afternoon will work.
Please remember to renew your membership at the Griffiths Centre for 2019. These are available right at the Centre or directly from Andy and we ask they be paid by the end of January. Those that are away this time of year can renew their memberships upon returning back home in the Spring.
