Good as new! A one day festival of repair & reuse

April 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at Stretford Public Hall for ‘Good as new!’, our one day festival celebrating all things reuse and repair, in partnership with Stretford’s clothing co-op Stitched Up!

There will be free bike repairs, free clothing alterations and advice, and a chance to join a Stitched Up! clothing repair workshop. Stitched Up! will also be on hand to give advice on repairing other household items, as well as providing information about their Repair Cafes.

Plastic Shed will be running free workshops, sharing ideas on how to recycle plastic yourself, and how to make a recycled plastic keyring. Stretford Street Art Club will also be running craft workshops for children.

Stretford in Bloom will be demonstrating how to make paper plant pots, and One Trafford will be on hand to give advice about recycling and home composting.

Plus – in our car park – we’re holding our first ever car boot sale! Interested in a pitch at the car boot? Click here for more information.

The event runs from 10am – 3pm, with the car boot opening at 10pm until 1pm.

A cafe serving refreshments will be operating all day.

Free entry! Kindly supported by Trafford Housing Trust.
