Sheffield Community Toolbank Relaunch Event

BitFIXit is proud to announce that we will participate in the Sheffield Community Toolbank relaunch event, which will be held by Green City Action. The event will take place at Abbeyfield Park on Saturday 23rd March 2019, from 10am to 4pm.

The Toolbank will offer tool swaps and tool sharpening services on a pay-as-you-feel basis during the course of the event, making the relaunch a grand opportunity to bring in any worn and tired tools and gardening equipment and keep them in good working order.

Repair Sheffield will be participating at the relaunch event, and will offer its repair cafe services to the community, where volunteers from Repair Sheffield can fix a wide, diverse range of household items, clothes and fabrics, which means that members of the public can bring with them various kinds of stuff that need fixing, and learn how to repair the items themselves. One item fixed is one less item going into landfill!

People’s Kitchen Pitsmoor will also be at the relaunch event from 2pm to 4pm, where it will showcase a recipe to enable members of the community to try out food and snacks from different cuisines. The community group has ambitious plans to transform Abbeyfield Park into a hub for people all over Sheffield, and convert the currently disused stables into a cafe and kitchen for people to meet up and try out new recipes.

And of course, we at BitFIXit will offer our own IT repair workshops at the relaunch, as well as share creative ideas about reusing and repurposing computer parts and IT equipment with the community.

BitFIXit 2018 Easter Weekend Opening

The BitFIXit community clinics workshops will be opening as normal this Easter Weekend, giving members of the local community the opportunity to bring in their computers for repairs and optimisations. We will certainly endeavour to help with hardware and software issues during the Easter Weekend clinics workshops, just like on any other weekend. So as always, please feel free to bring in your computer that you just can’t seem to get to work, or otherwise just needs some tender loving care, and we will help return it to a good working order.
