OUR COMMUNITY MOVEMENT

Repair, don't replace!

Why a Repair Cafe?

We throw away vast amounts of ‘stuff’ that could easily be repaired. We've fallen out of the habit of repairing things, or simply don’t know how. Today, it seems easier to replace an item than to mend it.

 

The Repair Cafe changes all that. By reducing the volume of materials and energy needed to make new products, we cut CO2 and stop all that stuff going to landfill. Most of all, the Repair Cafe shows how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is!

 

How does it work?

We meet from 10 am - 12.30pm once a month at Cheap Street Church Hall. 

 

It is run by a team of volunteers:

  • ‘Fixers’ who can repair stuff. Some will be professionals while others just a ‘dab hand’ at getting things in working order.

  • Servers of coffee, tea, and refreshments!

  • Organisers of the day who ensure things go smoothly.

 

Visitors bring their broken items from home. Small, damaged objects, mechanical devices in need of an overhaul, jewellery repairs, clothing, and children’s toys that could do with some TLC.  

 

If possible, the repair will be done while you wait. If not, the repairer will take the item home to repair and return the item at the following cafe. The only charge is for materials needed to make the repair, and a discretionary donation towards the running of the Cafe.
