This meeting has been set up for anyone who wishes to find out more information about the ZWS group with a view to becoming involved. At the moment the “group” is actually just me. It would be great to have some help with the day to day running of things, as well as fresh new ideas and contributions from different walks of life.

I am particularly in urgent need of someone willing to act as Treasurer, and also someone to act as Secretary. But whatever skills and ideas you have, do please come along if you are at all interested in what you can do to help Sedbergh work towards our Zero Waste goals. Refreshments will be served.

Simply Repair South Lakes in Sedbergh

Tuesday 9th October, Sedbergh People’s Hall, 4pm – 7pm

Simply repair SL

Simply Repair South Lakes hold ‘pop-up’ repair events where you can get clothing and small electrical items mended for free. They bring together people who have skills to repair, and those who want to learn to repair. They aim to reduce waste and encourage a repair revolution!

Zero Waste Sedbergh are thrilled that they have agreed to bring their repair workshop to The People’s Hall in October.

So… do you have any clothes, toys or small electrical items* in need of repair? Bring them along and Simply Repair SL will do their best to fix them FREE OF CHARGE. They aim to give your stuff a new lease of life so that you don’t have to throw it away and buy new, and they’ll be happy to show you how they do it. They will have sewing and electrical experts, so bring your holey trousers and woollies and they’ll show you how to mend them!

*It would help if you could LET THEM KNOW WHAT YOU’RE BRINGING so that they can make sure they have the right tools; please contact Karen on 07854 751169 or email karen@bentley-brown.co.uk
