Do you have a fix-it skill or need something repaired?

The second annual Fix-it Café will be held at the Truro Farmers’ Market from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

on Sunday, April 28.

Last year a variety of small appliances, items of clothing, furniture, bicycles and other things were given a new life, thanks to skilled volunteers.

“A lot of things that could be fixed are disposed of every year,” said Julian Krizsan, the Truro teen who organized the event. “If things can be repaired it reduces consumption and has there’s less effect on climate change. That’s important to me, and to the LEC (Living Earth Council) collectively.”

He was pleased to see many things fixed up at the first café and hopes to see an even bigger response this year.

People are invited to bring almost anything except broken computers, mobile phones, television and large appliances.

The Fix-it Café is presented by the Living Earth Council and all work is done free of charge.
