Don’t Bin it – fix it!- Repair Cafe & Seed Swap on Saturday 20th February

Broken lamp? Dodgy vacuum cleaner? Ripped pocket? Why not let our volunteers show you how to fix them and keep them our of landfill?

Join us at the Ken Kennet Centre on Justin’s Avenue (CV37 0DA) from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 20th February (last repair taken in at 12.30).

We’ll have volunteer repairers able to look at bicycles, small electrical items such as kettles, radios, hoovers, lamps etc , sewing repairs such as split seams, ripped pockets, broken zips (if a replacement is needed please bring one with you), general repairs such chair legs, handles off ceramics and the like plus knife and garden tool sharpening.

All repairs will be carried out free and you’ll be able to see how it’s done too, although donations will be most welcome! And if we can’t fix it we’ll pass on details of local repairers who should be able to help or tell you what parts we think you might need.

To celebrate the start of the planting season there will also be a seed swap – bring along any old or unwanted seeds and swap them for those you do want to try.

Finally we’ll have hot drinks, homemade cakes and Harvest Share apple juice for sale too.
