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.
This is an international movement, sponsoring local voluntary action, both campaigning and practical, in support of the environment. Local branches are: - Transition Belsize • Transition Kentish Town - their last newsletter included details of a showing of part of the film "Demain" - "Food for thought? Demain - Education The final chapter in our showing of the film Demain, with it’s positive solutions for local living. This month we are concentrating on Education and looking beyond the exam factory. Perhaps a particularly pertinent statement considering most of our kids are now deep in stressful revision. What is education for? How do we educate for active citizenship? Come and share your ideas on Monday 21st May 2018 at The Grafton. See full newsletter HERE.
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. For details and booking for next Kentish Town Restart Party on Tuesday 5th June 2018, from 6:30pm at Kentish Town Community Centre, 17 Busby Place Camden Town, click HERE
