Repair Fair Quaker Meeting House, Harpenden
May 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Don’t chuck it, repair it!
St Albans District Fixers are coming to the Quaker Meeting House, Harpenden to help repair household fabrics and electrical items you might otherwise throw away. This is part of a wider initiative to reduce waste, save people money and in the longer term prevent our planet from being destroyed by over exploitation of our shared resources.
The St Albans District Fixers are part of Sustainable St Albans www.sustainablestalbans.org/st-albans-district-fixers. We hold Repair Fairs around the district inspired by The Restart Project . Fixing rather than buying replacements has already saved thousands of tons from going to landfill or incineration helping in a not insignificant way to reduce our CO2 emissions.
So on 13th May, bring along your faulty electrical items and worn, torn fabrics. The team of skilled amateur fixers will do their best to put them right or offer advice. You may even learn to repair things yourself!
You can book a time for your repair via Eventbrite.
