Broken Item Needs a Repair?

Broken Items Collage

At Cafeplus+ on Sunday 5th January the first "Haddenham Repair Cafe" will be in operation.

The purpose is to repair broken stuff and there will be volunteers and tools on hand to help visitors fix broken items they have brought along — anything you can carry, they'll try to help!

If it looks like it can't be repaired they'll tell you!

If it needs a spare part, they'll try to help you find one.

Supported by Cafeplus+ and Zero-Carbon Haddenham, the idea is to encourage 'repairing' rather than 'replacing' as the logical first step when things break in order to keep things out of landfill and reduce unnecessary consumption.

It is hoped that this event will be held each month based at Cafeplus+ on the first Sunday of the month and you can contact the team by email at: repaircafe@zeroch.org for more details
