How to organise a Repair Cafe in your community (Huntingdon and Fenland)

How to organise a Repair Cafe in your community (Huntingdon and Fenland)

Tue 21 Feb 2023, 7:30pm – 9:00pm

An online 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 to support new groups and individuals who’d like to have a go. For details about local Cafes, see our Repair Cafe pages. This session is targeted at individuals and communities in the Huntingdon and Fenland areas of Cambridgeshire.

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 precious resources out of landfill and save greenhouse gases, but are brilliant at building community too.  The feedback from visitors is almost always positive and 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 please email nicole@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org by Thurs 16th Feb with your name, contact details and the location/area that you’re considering organising a Cafe in.
