Repair Cafe - CANCELLED
This event has been cancelled.

This event is aimed at reducing what goes into landfill and maybe you can pick up a repair skill along the way too! We will have handy people, repair station as well as some arty, crafty people to help with fiddly things! Pop down and just have a look around and say hi. As well as some talented volunteers on site we will also have some tools. If you have been looking for a "thingy" to fix your "whatjamacallit" then pop on down and see if we have one here! NO NEED TO BOOK :-)
Cost: Free

What are Repair Cafes? Repair Cafés are pop up events where people bring their broken and damaged belongings and local experts sit down with them and do their best to repair them. They’re about bringing people together, connecting local people in their communities with others who are happy to share their skills and knowledge, saving people money and reducing the amount of material that ends up in our landfills. What we hope to repair? Small Electrical Appliances, Bicycles, Furniture & Wood, Clothes, and General Repairs & Toys. Not a ‘Stop and Drop’ but a ‘Stay and Learn’ As Repair Café events are pop up events typically lasting two to three hours, complicated or drawn-out jobs are not going to be possible. As far as is practically and safely possible guests are encouraged to get involved in the repair of their items. Our repairers will spend an average of between 15 and 20 minutes on a repair. This will depend upon the strengths and skills of volunteer experts and the local demand for different support. And there will be free tea and coffee! No booking required, first come, first served.
