“Do you have something that needs fixing? Perhaps a CD player, coffee machine, pair of jeans, favourite necklace, bicycle, much loved toy…don’t bin it – bring it along and we will do our best to fix it while you watch/help!”
What is a Repair Café?
Repair Cafés are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things. The international repair café movement kicked off in Amsterdam, and has now grown to over a thousand worldwide, with more than 115 in Britain. They are completely non-commercial, and their aim is simply to encourage people to consider getting items repaired before throwing them out so as to reduce waste and extend a product’s use.
