May – Make do and mend – promoting reuse and repair

Why repair?

Repairing saves you money. It saves the environment. And it connects us to our things. Don't throw away. Join the repair revolution.

We'd like to promote reuse and local repair services such as bike repairs, computer or electrical equipment repair, household goods repairs and sewing or crafting groups.

Lots of shops offer repair services - look on your high street, search online or in local directories. You Tube also has lots of repair videos which could help you if you want to repair items yourself.

If you know of any repair and reuse groups like this, let us know and we’ll share the information with residents to promote reuse. Email us at
