TRANSITION CAMBRIDGE EVENT: Saturday 17 February: Arbury Swap, Collect and Fix-fest11:00-16:30, Arbury Community Centre, Campkin Road,CB4 2LD

'The Arbury Swap, Collect and Fix Fest is all about promoting repair and reuse, offering people several ways to deal with their unwanted items - household items that may be destined for the tip might instead go on the give-and-take shelf, pre-loved clothes might be swapped for 'new-to-you' ones, and malfunctioning appliances could be fixed by a local engineer or sewing-whizz who's donating their time to the Repair Cafe. 

- 11am - 12:30pm Children's and women's clothes swap 

- 1:30pm - 4:30pm Arbury Repair Cafe 

- 1:30pm and 3pm Screenings of short films in the 'Story of Stuff' series as part of the 'Films for Our Future' festival. 

- All day: The City Rangers will be collecting bulky items from people's homes. Veolia will supply skips, bins and cages for unwanted items. There'll be a give-and-take shelf and 

  stalls from local organisations.'

I hope you find something here of interest, and again, please let me know if you have any questions/ideas/general green interest you want to talk about!

Lots of love, 

Alice Gilderdale :)
