On Saturday 8 June the Fixers will be at Aylsham Town Hall from 2.30–5.30 pm as guests of Aylsham Climate Emergency (ACE).
“We certainly haven’t fixed everything in Reepham, but after seven successful sessions here we think it’s time to try a wider catchment area,” said Fixery volunteer Charles Butcher.
“Working with the ACE team we look forward to spreading the message to Aylsham, Cawston and surrounding villages. And of course it would be great to see people from Reepham too.”
Aylsham Town Council set up ACE in 2021 to help the town become more sustainable in the face of the climate crisis.
The event on 8 June marks the start of Great Big Green Week, a celebration of community action to tackle climate change.
Following The Fixery, at 6.30 pm there will be a special screening of the film 2042 hosted by Aylsham Picture House.
The Fixery is a “repair café” where people can bring in clothing, bags, jewellery, bikes, electrical items and small pieces of furniture to be fixed free of charge, or for the cost of any spare parts needed.
Since their first session at the end of February the Fixers have tackled dozens of items from trousers to teapots and from bikes to electric buggies. If they can’t repair a particular item they may be able to advise who can, and the likely cost.
The Fixery opens on the second and fourth Saturday of every month. On Saturday 22 June the Fixers will be back in their usual home in the Bircham Centre, Reepham, from 11 am – 3 pm.
You can contact The Fixery via the website, Facebook and Instagram (thefixeryreepham) or telephone 07771 193620.
