As part of its autumn activities, the Fernhurst Hub is launching a programme of events, talks and courses on the theme of sustainability and care for the environment.

Fernhurst Primary School’s pupils are on board, and 1st Fernhurst Scouts has offered to publicise the hub’s IT equipment recycling scheme.

The launch event will see Haslemere’s Repair Cafe celebrate its first anniversary at the Fernhurst Hub from 10am to 1pm on Saturday, October 1.

Hub manager Liz Rawlings said: “We expect to have at least five ‘repairers’ present. Visitors may bring broken but repairable possessions, including electrical items, clothing, bicycles and much more, and receive advice and repairs in exchange for a donation to the Love Haslemere Hate Waste group.

“This will be a fun event with a serious theme about sustainability.”

No booking is required. There will be cake, fabric printing activities for children and advice on recycling and how to cut waste.
