Our next Restart Party in Tooting is at Mushkil Aasaan this coming Saturday 8th December, 13.30-16.30. At this event, as ever, you can bring in broken electronics and see if our team of volunteer fixers can give them a new lease of life or at least identify the problem. The ethos behind our Restart parties is to keep items out of landfill by repairing and re-using. It’s an antidote to the throw away culture that can sometimes prevail.
Mending Toys Too!
Just in time for Christmas this event also includes toy mending. Why buy yet more new stuff when we could help you to repair some old things that you or your family love? Dig those cherished broken items out of the bottom of the cupboard and bring them along. What better gift than a surprise repair for the kids? Our Supermen (and Superwomen) fixers will do our best to make them good as new!
And our usual reminder …
Restart Parties are a community self-repair space where you take responsibility for your own gadgets and data, so please don’t forget to take any back-ups beforehand, if relevant – and if possible arrive during the first two hours to allow time for fixing! More info about the Restart Project here
