We’ve added south London borough Lambeth to our Repair Directory, and we’re getting ready to add more in the coming year, together with our London community. We’ve also made a change to reliability criteria for businesses.
We’re getting our calendar ready for the beginning of 2020. The first months of the year are a great time to recruit new volunteers, engage the public on the issues underpinning our throw-away economy, but also to eat cake, to share hot drinks and connect with neighbours.
We call volunteers who share their repair skills Restarters.
