Greening Chinnor are delighted to announce their first Repair Café. The idea is to match amazing repairers with people who need stuff fixed … and all for FREE.
You can also pick up ideas on how to fix things yourself, if that interests you. We welcome:
* small portable household electrical appliances * electronic items * simple computer problems * toys & mechanical items * bicycles * general bits and bobs
Please bring items before 3:30 pm
Bring along items small enough for one person to carry and please back up your data
Plus we have ‘Plumbing Demo Man’ who will show how it’s possible to make tap repairs with basic tools.
The repairers are good and can fix many things but there are no guarantees.
For further details about the event check out the FAQs on the Repair Café tab at www.greeningchinnor.blogspot.co.uk. Enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07973 788339.
The event is entirely run by volunteers and we’re aiming for a relaxed social atmosphere where anyone can pop in. As well as repairs you can drop in for a cuppa and homemade cake. The repairs are free but donations towards costs will be gratefully received. There may be some spares/consumables to purchase on the day.
This initiative forms forms part of a county-wide effort to tackle waste electrical items with similar events being held nearby in Wallingford, Didcot and Wantage.
Support and training for the initiative has been provided by the Oxfordshire Community Action Group Network and Oxfordshire County Council.
So, even if you don’t have anything to ‘mend’ just come along and check it out whilst enjoying the refreshments.
