Camden Local Exchange Trading Scheme
News and Events
This is a regular event for members to connect up and for prospective members to find out what Camden LETS is all about. We sometimes meet at members homes, sometimes in a cafe or community centre, just before another advertised meeting - see below. Watch this space for details of next event, and if you are going to attend any of the listed events, please get in touch in advance via Contact Us so we can arrange a small meetup before or after the event.
Thursday 22nd February 2018 - Belsize Park Restart Party: Restart Parties are free and fun events giving practical help to fix your broken or tired gadgets. Slow laptops, broken printers, coffee grinders, lamps, kettles, vacuums and many other small electrical items! We’ll help you figure out the problem and give help and advice on how to fix it. Restart Parties promote the repair and maintenance of electronics that may otherwise be thrown away. Our volunteers will help you learn to fix, we're not simply a free repair service and we can’t guarantee to fix everything. Repairs will start at 18:30. If you're new to Restart and interested in helping host or fix, please aim to arrive at 18:00 for a brief introduction session. Further information and Booking
