In July we are joined by the Restart Party which is a great project if you want/need to repair anything electric, electronic and learn a new skill at the same time.
A slow laptop? Faulty kettle? Radio misbehaving?
Bring all your items to Recycles Ilford at the Salvation Army, 15 Clements Road, IG1 1BH on Saturday 9 July from 11 to 2pm and get it mended.
In the theme of resilience and Transition a more resilient community will require us to be adept in a wide range of skills – skills that until recently were everyday but are now greatly undervalued (food growing, repairing things, natural building, maintaining renewable energy systems).
How best to address this collective loss of practical skills? Not only repairing your existing devices but learning how to do it. 🙂
We’ve also got green and craft stalls and our community cafe selling healthy, home cooked veggie food.
