On the Saturday the 14th of May, community repair groups across the UK will be throwing the doors open to their local communities as part of The Big Fix 2022
Organised by Recycle Devon and Devon County Council, The Big Fix is a nationwide celebration of repair and will see dozens of Repair Cafes, Restart Parties and other repair events running on the same day.
Similarly to International Repair Day in October, the idea is to promote community repair, generate some publicity and feel part of a bigger movement. Unlike Repair Day though, the Big Fix is just focused on the UK.
It’s great to see a number of groups across the network already panning events for that weekend, including:
- Todmorden Repair Cafe / Makery (@Mick_Chesterman)
- Repair Café Portsmouth (@Clare_Seek)
- Restarters Tooting (@Mike_Grahn)
- Repair Cafe Leeds (@Alistair_Brown)
- Reading Repair Café (@Stuart_Ward)
- St George’s Tufnell Park Restarters (@Alexandra_Lilley & @Helena_Nora_Vitola-Jones)
If you’re not already planning to link your event to the Big Fix (or aren’t currently planning an event for that day), do consider joining in
