More about the Share & Repair project:

The Share & Repair initiative will:

  • Celebrate local fixing and mending wherever it is happening!
  • Promote local repair, fixing and mending businesses.
  • Support skill sharing and repairing events – building on our regular Restart/Sewstart sessions.
  • Our long-term ambition is to find a permanent a self-sufficient community space for Tooting’s Share & Repair community!

Help us by

  • Sharing details with us of any local businesses that do repair, fixing, mending or alterations – this could include working with electrical or electronic goods, furniture, clothes, leather goods, upholstery – and more…
  • Letting us know if you have fixing or mending skills which you’d be happy to share with the community through this group – or you know someone who does….
  • Telling us if you have something to offer the Share & Repair community – space, materials, tools or other skills like project planning, communications, social media, photography – anything which might help us build our work.

Contact and Follow

  • Project tweets and posts will go up on Transition Town Tooting’s Twitter and Instagram
  • You can join the Share & Repair Facebook Group for project-specific updates
