NOTICE: March session cancelled
We are sorry to announce that we have decided to cancel the March session. Whilst Tewkesbury has to date been lucky enough to avoid Corona virus cases, we feel that in the interest of the health and well being of our volunteers and clients it is best to play safe.
For clients that have arranged to collect items this month a minimal number of volunteers will be at the baptist church to return items between 2 and 3pm on Saturday.
Welcome to the Repair Cafe
Repair Cafés are free events where people who have items that need repairing are put in touch with people who have the necessary skills to repair the items.
Saturday 11th April
Saturday 9th May
Saturday 13th June
Saturday 8th August
Saturday 12th September
Saturday 14th November
Tewkesbury Baptist Church Sports Hall
2pm to 5pm
The café space creates a sense of harmony and community where people of all ages and backgrounds but with a common interest can chat, meeting old friends and making new ones. Regular visitors to the Repair Café have become friends with a favourite repairer and ask for them by name.
Repair saves time and money! More often than not, a very simple repair is all that is needed to fix a broken or damaged item thus saving the unnecessary cost of a replacement. When we send less waste to landfill, costs are reduced and the whole community benefits financially!
Repair is the natural way to extend a product's useable life. It reduces waste and pollution, and it saves energy, carbon emissions and finite non-renewable resources. It reduces the need to recycle which often uses more resources than producing something new.
