Hounslow to host first-ever restart party

Do you have an electrical appliance or electronic device that needs repairing? If so, come to Hounslow’s first-ever restart party on Saturday, March 7, at the Hounslow Library and give your objects a new lease of life.

Restart parties are pop-up community events offering free repair services to participants. They are the brainchild of The Restart Project, a London-based social enterprise that encourages and empowers people to use their electronics longer by sharing repair and maintenance skills.

Through community and workplace events, The Restart Project creates opportunities to extend the lifespan of electronics and electrical equipment.

The Hounslow event is being sponsored by the local branch of the Rubbish Diet, a UK-wide programme to reduce household waste.

If you plan to attend, please observe these guidelines:

  • Arrive during the first two hours.
  • Bring devices charged AND their power leads/adapters.
  • Do not expect the repairers to have spare parts or replacement mobile screens.

Details for the restart party:

Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015
Venue: Hounslow Library, The Treaty Shopping Centre, High Street, Hounslow, London TW3 1ES
Time: 2pm-5pm, but please arrive by 4pm at the latest to give the volunteers time to carry out the repairs.
