Repairing your items is a great way to prolong the life of the items you already own. Repair cafés are a way to learn repair skills and give new life to your belongings.
We are holding a FREE Repair Café on Saturday 23 July 2022 at Fullwell Cross Library from 11am to 2pm in partnership with the East London Waste Authority. We will have live repair demonstrations, free repairs for textiles and electricals and free bike MOTs! Don't have anything that needs repairing? Don't worry, come along for some free refreshments and have a chat with our engagement team about other ways to reduce your waste.
