Repair Cafe

February 21, 2022

One of the first projects we will be running is a Repair Cafe or Facility in Tattenhall.
What is a Repair Cafe?
The purpose of a Repair Cafe is to repair equipment or machines that would otherwise get thrown away. The equipment gets fixed, stuck together, sharpened or advice given on parts needed.  It can be anything portable – household electrical, furniture, clothes, textiles, garden tools, bicycles. All fixed for free or a small cost.

Repair cafes stop waste, reduce consumption, and build community links. Usually they are pop-ups, maybe one day/month.
Clearly we are starting from nothing, there are many details to be settled, and things to do.  If you’d like to be involved and help get this off the ground please drop an email to transition.tattenhall@gmail.com

There will be a zoom meeting for everyone interested to meet and decide what to do next – Tuesday 8th March in the evening with a link being sent out closer to the date. 

Hope you can join us
