Blackrock Tidy Towns in association with the Louth County Council organised a Fix It Factory at the Community Centre on Saturday 21st March 2015.
As Larry Magnier describes in this interview with Padraig Quigley, the idea is to get people to think about recycling or ‘upcycling’ as he describes it.
There were experts on hand to have a look at furniture, musical instruments electronic and small electrical equipment, bicycles, jewellery, clothing and shoes as can be seen in our collage.
Bridgestone and McManus Tyres were also there to check your tyres and give you a written report.
There was free tea and coffee and fun activities for the children.
