Description

Let’s fix things together.


When something breaks or stops working why do so many of us just throw it out and scrabble around for the money to replace it? It’s wasteful and expensive. Wouldn’t it make more sense to mend things?

Better still let’s make mending things into a positive social activity that brings people together and mends a lot more than the broken item.
We want to test this idea and offer the chance for people to fix things (on this occasion, portable electronic and electrical devices).

Those with repair skills would be welcome to share their expertise. If you share our passion for this potential project and want to work with us to make it happen please contact Charlotte: [email protected]

To start the ball rolling, Totally Socially and Whitby Area Sheds will hold a Restart Party at the Scouts Hall in Whitby on Tuesday 26th February (Half Term) 10am – 1pm.

If this event proves successful then there will be a second event, which could include general items for repair. 


Note: we can’t repair microwaves.

The Restart Party will be at Eskmouth (Whitby) Scout Hall off Spring Hill above Trlllo’s and to the left of Bagdale Lodge, There is no parking there.

Let’s fix things together.

We want to test this idea and offer the chance for people to fix things (on this occasion, portable electronic and electrical devices).

Totally Socially and Whitby Area Sheds have teamed up to run Whitby's first ever Restart Party. If it proves successful, we hope to run another one and see how it goes from there.

We're looking for people with repair or event planning skills to help out. To learn more, sign up to our community or send an email to: [email protected]
