Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Summary: Stall in the market to repair and engage community members around maintenance and repair of electronic items. We do aspire to fix other things like toys and such but 99% of the time it’s computers, phones, and kitchen items. We also do PAT testing.

A bit of background: We have been able to have 2 individuals who are paid for their time, but it’s been very helpful to have volunteers to help manage the load (which is increasing every session) especially when one of the expert repairers can’t make it in.

And: Also useful to have volunteers help to log and photograph all items and help upload data so we can keep track of what we are doing over the course of the year.

Of course: Any thoughts feedback welcome.

Church Street Share, Repair, and Recycle

The Church Street Repair and Exchange group meets in the Church Street market from April to September, or at Fisherton Hall October to March. Occasionally we pop up in other places like the local library!

We repair and facilitate exchange of electronic items from lamps to laptops. We also strive to facilitate the exchange of home based non-electronic items like toys and shoes. We also do PAT testing.
