Repair and re-use day in London Fields this Saturday

Saturday 11 June, 11am – 3pm

London Fields (Martello Street Entrance)

Three of Hackney’s most popular free events are coming together in London Fields once again for the third annual Repair and Re-use Day.

Hackney Fixers

Slow laptop? Faulty printer? Smartphone misbehaving? Hackney Fixers will help you repair it. Whether you love tinkering, hate shopping, or just can’t bear throwing stuff away, this is the place to come to give your electrical items a new lease of life.

Give or Take

Get rid of your unwanted items and pick up something you do need for free. You don’t have to give to take and you don’t have to take to give. Clothes, books, furniture, toys, records….it’s like a jumble sale where no money changes hands.

Dr Bike

Bring your bicycle along for a free health check. Professional bike mechanics will make sure everything is in good safe working order and carry out basic repairs free of charge.

Cllr Feryal Demirci, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Sustainability
Our repair and re-use days are becoming more popular every year. There are loads of useful free things to pick up, and people really enjoy finding out how to fix things they thought were beyond repair.

Throwing something away and buying a replacement might be easy, but disposing of waste has financial and environmental costs. This event is a fun way for people to see what can be re-used and repaired, and how they can help to reduce waste in Hackney.
