GIVE your once-loved items a new lease off life. Small electrical items quite often can be repaired, clothing can be remade into something new or repaired, knives chisels, scissors can be sharpened or maybe a bike needs its brakes or handle bars adjusted. By sitting with the volunteers as they carry out the repairs, you can pick up valuable skills which will mean less and less items being discarded as ‘unfixable’. Repairs are FREE however donations are welcome to keep the project going.
The repair cafe is open the first Saturday of every month at St Andrew’s Church, Montpellier Street Cheltenham. Now in it’s 2nd year the cafe continues to be a great success and to attract 20-30 visitors every month.
The repair cafe is sponsored by: Vision21, University of Gloucestershire and Gloucestershire CC’s Joint Waste Team and is supported by St Andrew’s Church. For more information about the Regeneration Repair Cafe please visit www.vision21.org.uk/projects
