Readers can learn to build solar panels from scratch at an event in Finsbury Park on Saturday, October 12.

The free community eco fair will be held at St Thomas's the Apostle church, from noon to 4pm, where people can pick up a free LED light bulb and other energy saving advice.

The St Thomas's Road event will include talks on environmental issues, a "make do and mend" workshop where people can patch up old clothes, games for kids, an all ages book swap and the Blackstock Triangle Gardeners will be giving out composting tips and free daffodil bulbs.

"This is a fun, varied, inclusive event where everybody will be able to join in, learn and have fun, play games and put questions to our experts - to help us all live more lightly."
