Do you have repair skills or something that needs fixing?
Repair cafes are springing up all over the world in response to the throwaway society. They provide local communities with a way of coming together to repair broken household items, learn how to repair things and chat over light refreshments. What is there not to like about this?
Still not sure what a repair cafe is then listen to the BBC podcast
We are running a virtual repair cafe during covid and you can contact us if you have something that needs repairing and we will do our best to try and find somebody to help. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We expect to start the full Repair Cafe in the summer in Penfold Hall on a monthly basis, on Saturday mornings/lunchtimes. You will be able to drop in with your broken items, watch them being mended and chat to the repairer over tea and cake. We are very excited about this, we hope you are too.
If you know anybody who has repairing skills or would be interested to help us run the cafe then please put them in touch with us on this email address, email@example.com – we already have a good sized team but the more people we have the more fun it will be.
If you are not sure and just want to chat over how this will work drop us an email with your telephone number and we will call you back at your convenience.
