Saturday 12th November: Cambridge Repair Cafe

Wesley Methodist Church, Christ's Pieces, CB1 1LG 13:30-16:00 add to google calendar
Cambridge Repair Cafe is back, this time as part of the Circular Cambridge Festival, a cornucopia of events showcasing practical ways of moving away from the linear economy of buying stuff, using it and throwing it away.

Repair Cafes match experienced repairers with people who need stuff fixing, and help them pick up useful repair tips and skills. We tackle small household appliances and electrical items, computers, mobile phones, bicycles, clothes (clean clothes only please) and general bits'n'bobs.

You can turn up with your broken item on the day, but it's best to book your item in so the repairers have an idea of what to expect:

The repairers are brilliant and can fix most things but there are no guarantees.

It's a free event, donations to cover costs are very welcome. More...

Saturday 12th November - Sunday 13th: Pivotal Takeover: a festival of the environment, community & technology

Cambridge Museum of Technology 19:30-20:30 add to google calendar
We are delighted to be collaborating with our friends at Pivotal, CCF, and FOE to bring you a small scale, home-made festival to highlight the anniversary of the historic COP21 2015 agreement for global action on climate change. Featuring films, conversations, storytelling, music, nature, food and drink, the Pivotal Takeover promises to be inspirational, provocative and memorable. More details will follow in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, can you help us crowdfund to cover essential expenses? If 100 of us can give just £10 we will achieve our target. Take a look at this lovely promotional film about the festival here and watch this space for updates.

Monday 21st November: Transition Cambridge hub meeting

Nicola's house on Chesterton Road 19:00-21:00 add to google calendar
At the hub's monthly meeting, representatives of the groups and projects report on what they've been up to. We also make plans together to coordinate future events. Meetings are open, so all are welcome to attend. Attending hub meetings is a good way to see how Transition Cambridge works, and to get a sense of the range of projects that we are involved with. Contact Nicola for details of the address.
