The Fix-It Fair folks will once again bring together a fantastic team of volunteers offering their expertise in repairing broken appliances, electronics, and bikes, and mending clothing and other fabric items, free of charge.
Watch the “fixers” at work, ask them questions about what they do and how you can keep your things in good order, and help extend the life and use of your possessions and keep them out of the landfill.
They’ll be at Bowen Island Community School gym (1041 Mount Gardner Road) on Sunday, Nov. 12 from Noon to 3 pm.
Enjoy a hot cup of tea, coffee, or hot chocolate as you watch them at work (bring your own mug to help make this a zero-waste event). And please ensure items to be fixed are clean when you bring them in. Hope to see you and your repair-worthy items there!
Deep thanks to the BICS Community School Association for sponsoring the event, which is organized by Paola Qualizza and the gang at Regenerative Bowen Island, a non-profit society dedicated to creating a more resilient and connected community here on Bowen — including running Bowen’s Fix-It Fairs since 2015!
