Ashburton Repair Cafe @ Ashburton Arts
Nov 3 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

 

 

Start searching your lofts, scouring your garages and rummaging in your spare rooms for those broken, and sometimes cherished, items that otherwise might end up in landfill. Electricals, textiles, furniture, or other items. On Saturday 3rd November at the Ashburton Arts Centre, there will be experts on hand who will try their best to lovingly restore them to full working order, all for the “price” of a small donation! This is the first Ashburton Repair Cafe so find those broken things and come along and find out what it’s all about. There will be tea and cake too!

Share Fest Totnes @ Totnes Civic Hall
Nov 24 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

This event will celebrate all things related to sharing, repairing, swapping and making! It’ll also be an opportunity to connect with others who share this passion, and promote local collaboration.


This free and family-friendly event aims to showcase a wide range of projects from Totnes that encourage a more resourceful, collaborative and sustainable lifestyle, as well as provide examples of sharing initiatives from all over the world. There’ll also be delicious food, music, children’s activities and much fun.

***If you’d like to be a partner, host a workshop, volunteer or be involved in any other way, please fill in the ShareFest Totnes Participation Form: https://goo.gl/forms/KvggXTu832JrNHTD3***

This event is organised by the Share Shed in collaboration with the Network of Wellbeing – NOW and Shareable, and will be one of over fifty ShareFests held around the world.

For further information, contact mirella@networkofwellbeing.org and the Facebook event page here.

Why is this event so exciting?

A powerful movement is growing, and it is changing how and what we consume. This movement is wide and diverse, and it can often be referred to under the umbrella term of the sharing economy.

The sharing economy provides access to products, services and skills without relying on personal ownership. It is all about owning less and sharing more!

Practical details:
When: 24th November, from 10am to 5pm
Where: Totnes Civic Hall (Market Square, High Street).
Entrance: Free (donations welcome) and family-friendly.
