We weigh all items on the way out, so please make sure you stop off at Mark’s desk to have your bags of goodies weighed out. This way, we can calculate how much each event diverts from Landfill.
Cherwell District Council’s Recycling Team will be there to give out lots of fantastic tips about how to recycle, what to recycle and where and answer any questions you may have.
Just confirmed: Socialise with Ami will be there on the day to talk about Socialise in Bicester
There will be a great Community Cafe, where you can sit, enjoy a cuppa and a cake and have a chat to your friends, or the people at the table next to you about all the best finds you have nabbed so far!
Relove is the new name for our old Freecycle Live events, we have revamped and are taking Relove right into the heart of our Community. Visiting Kings End and Elmsbrook so far, our next is at Bure Park, we aim to do two/three more this year, so suggestions on a postcard please if you want us to bring Relove to your area of Bicester.

Community Repairs and Advice (Attempts)
Over a nice cup of tea or coffee. We also have cake! 🙂
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.
