Extracts from Camden Green Party member Sian Berry’s new book Mend It!: 400 Easy Repairs for Everyday Items, are featured in today’s Observer. The publisher says: “Even the most DIY-shy person will find this book a revelation.”
The detailed instructions cover everything from “how to take up a hem (without swearing)” and putting up a shelf, to how to rehang a door and how to simple steps you can take to make your kitchen appliances last longer.
Many Camden residents will be familiar with Sian’s earlier books, 50 Ways to Make Your House and Garden Greener, 50 Ways to Save Water & Energy, and 50 Ways to Be a Greener Shopper, from the extracts from them that have appeared in Camden Green Party newsletters.
The book will be published on September 24 and available from all good local bookstores in Camden – we’d encourage you to support them!
