Hosted by Group avatarOur Planet Our Future

Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

The Our Planet Our Future group has been organising evening speaker and discussion events in Harpenden since 2018.  On 9th September 2019 Philip Le Riche spoke at our event ‘What can you fix’, and it was clear there was significant enthusiasm for repair events in Harpenden.    


We are therefore delighted to be organising our first Repair Fair, in conjunction with Harpenden Quakers, as part of the 2020 Sustainability Festival.

Please join this group if you’d like to fix with us. You don’t need to be a member of Sustainable St Albans or Harpenden Quakers.


The Quakers Meeting House is near Harpenden Railway station. The address is 12 Southdown Road, Harpenden, Herts, AL5 1PD

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. But we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
