Happy Second Birthday to our Repair Cafe!

 

Corsham Repair Cafe 19 Sept 2015This Saturday marks the second birthday of our Repair Cafe! I am so excited and proud! Over the past two years and 11 cafes we have made nearly 150 repairs which means toasters, chairs, lamps, clothing, computers and bikes that haven’t gone to landfill.

We will be marking the occasion with cake, cups of tea, more repairs and I am going to attempt to tweet live from the event (yikes!) 2-4pm on Sat 19 Sept   #Corsham #RepairCafe

For more info on Repair Cafes and other mending events near you this month there is the fabulous Festival of Repair run by The Rubbish Diet and the Make Do and Mend-able Directory of all things repair related in the UK.  Jen from the above directory and the inspiration behind my setting up our Repair Cafe will also be operating a#makedoandmendyear tweetchat on the 24th of September which will be about Repair Cafes and Restart Parties.
