Woodley Repair Café

 

The Woodley Repair Café was launched in January 2024 and is now held on the first Sunday of the month from 2pm to 4pm at Christ Church in Woodley.

Repair Cafés are free community-centred workshops where people can bring things in need of repair in order to work together with volunteers to make good their broken or faulty items.

A Repair Café contributes to a sustainable, thriving community, where repair expertise is valued and passed on, where raw materials are used in a responsible way and where people can meet and get to know one another. We don't have to contribute to the huge amount of waste in our throw-away society! Far too many things get thrown away unnecessarily.

The Woodley Repair Café is run by volunteers with a team of 'fixers'. Items are weighed to keep a tally on how much is saved from landfill.
