Broken Spoke Open Bike Workshop @ Oxford
Aug 10 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand!

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!

Meadow Mowing & Raking at Iffley Island @ Iffley Island
Aug 12 all-day
Meadow Mowing & Raking at Iffley Island @ Iffley Island | England | United Kingdom

A traditional OCV task for high summer: our regular cut of this SSSI by the Thames, on behalf of the Oxford Preservation Trust.

We’ll cut the sedge and reeds and rake the cuttings off so they won’t enrich the soil. The end result is beneficial to the wild flowers on the site, and, in particular, to the fritillaries hereabouts. If the sun shines this is one of the high-lights of the OCV calendar. As last year we’ll be using our set of Austrian Scythes

We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear.

Under-18s are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:

1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am
or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer (check the weekly task email for instructions).

Repair Cafe by Circular Collective @ Makespace
Aug 18 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Repair Cafe by Circular Collective @ Makespace | England | United Kingdom

Community Repairs and Advice (Attempts)

Over a nice cup of tea or coffee. We also have cake! 🙂

Donations welcome!

Electrical, IT, mechanical and (hopefully) tool sharpening repairs for things like: laptops, iPods, lamps, drills, stereos, toys, blenders, tools, gardening tools, small furniture items, etc.

Help us to help you! Please bring all parts needed for testing such as: power cords, mains adaptors, CDs, remote controls, etc.

Want to come along to perform your own repairs? We’ve teamed up with EOF Hackspace who are making their hackspace and tools available for you to do so!

Please bear in mind that we can’t promise to repair. We will do our best to bring a second life to your items, and at least advise on alternative local repair options. You may wish to bring petty cash in case our volunteers suggest you purchase any specialised spare parts on the day and return to complete the repair.

Limited parking available on site and on Hayfield Road. Check parkopedia.co.uk for extra locations.

Event organised by local grassroots group The Oxford Circular Collective www.circularcollective.org/repaircafe

With support from The CAG Network, Oxfordshire County Councy, Oxford City Council and EOF Hackspace.
