Repair Café is returning after finding a new home in Evesham

Evesham Editorial 1st Mar, 2017   0

EVESHAM’S popular Repair Café is returning to the town at a new venue to once again give old and damaged items a new lease of life.

Following the closure imaGine in Market Square just before Christmas, the Repair Café has been looking for a new venue, but after securing the support of Evesham Methodist Church, in partnership with Evesham Transition Vale, the café will relaunch its volunteering services at the Bridge Street church on Saturday, March 11.

An array of experts will be on hand to offer help and support in repairing a variety of broken goods.

Tony Piper, who runs the Repair Café, said: “We’ve been working to establish a new venue where we can relaunch the café.

“We’ve been fortunate to secure the support of Evesham Methodist Church and it’s a really good venue for us as we’ll be able to link in to their catering arrangements, so we can provide people with refreshments while they wait for their stuff to be fixed.

“The whole ethos of the Repair café culture is to provide people with an opportunity to repair items that they might ordinarily have just thrown away.

“For the March session, we’ll have a range of volunteer repairers, including two electricians, three seamstresses, two carpenters, one volunteer who specialises in repairing watches and another who sharpens tools.

“In addition, we’ll also have a volunteer who can repair bicycles. The service is free and voluntary donations are welcome.”

The event will run from 10am to 2pm.
