An evening for anyone who has ever considered (either fleetingly or seriously!) running a Repair Cafe in their community. Cambridgeshire is recognised as a UK hub for Repair Cafes and we have a strong team that supports new groups and individuals who’d like to have a go. For details about local Cafes see http://circularcambridge.org/repaircafe/
This evening will introduce you to how they are organised and answer any questions you may have. We cover venue, publicity, safety, recruiting volunteers and repairers etc. Repair Cafes not only keep resources out of landfill but are brilliant community building events too. The feedback from visitors is almost 100% positive and the organisers tend to find it really rewarding too.
This evening is for information only, there’s no commitment to running a Repair Cafe at all. If you’d like to join us on 1st March, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org by Fri 23rd Feb giving your name, contact details and area in which you are thinking of organising a Cafe. You can also call Nicole on 01223 301842.
The event will be held in the Cambridge city centre, more details will be provided closer to the time.
