WEEKEND HITS: Here’s what’s happening in Sooke this weekend

Looking for something to do over the next few days.

Here are some of our top picks.

Zero Waste Sooke is again offering Sooke residents the opportunity to do their part in reducing the waste destined for Hartland landfill, while at the same time reviving the tradition of fixing, rather than discarding, our possessions when they have a problem. The idea is simple enough. If you have something that isn’t working right (or not working at all) you bring it to the Repair Cafe and community volunteers with some of that old-fashioned know-how will try to help you get it back in working condition. The Repair Cafe takes place on Saturday (Oct. 21) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• The Sooke Folk Music Society will present Mike Demers as its guest artist at its second coffee house of the season. The cofee house takes placeat Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Saturday (Oct. 21). Doors open at 7 p.m with an open stage at 7:30 p.m. For budding performers.

• The Victoria Village Squires Barbershop HarmonyChorus present Canada Aa Cappella at the sooke community hall. Special guests are the Sooke Harbour Players. The singing begins at 7:30 p.m.
