We have started a community repair and mend group, meeting every Thursday at Coffee Hub 9:30 am – 12 noon. So bring along those things that need fixing – vacuum cleaners / bikes / mowers / old garments that need a make over etc. and we will have a go at fixing them. Why bin it when we can fix it! We have begun to raise funds to help set up and buy more equipment for this project on Spacehive, so follow the link for more details and to pledge your donation now.
Technically minded repairers are particularly welcome on Thursdays!!
