Plastics Collaborate (Spring 2020) @ TBC

Please note the time and location of this meeting are TBC. Please contact info@cagoxfordshire.org.uk for more information or refer back to this page nearer to the time. 

The Plastics Collaborate meeting is an opportunity for Community Action Groups (CAGs) working on the theme of plastic to meet up, share and find ways of working together.

The meeting is open to members of the CAG network, as well as other associated, like-minded groups and organisations. We also moderate theme mailing lists for CAGs to communicate with each other between meetings.

As a large network spread across the county, the meetings are an important chance for CAGs to:

  • Discover more about other groups’ activities and achievements
  • Share knowledge and skills
  • Explore opportunities for collaborative projects and funding bids
  • Gain advice and support from The CAG Project staff and other members
  • Network and socialise with other members

Meetings are held biannually across a range of themes – please see our page on Collaborate Groups for more details on next meetings of all the groups.

If you are a member of a group wishing to take part in this meeting then please get in touch with The CAG Project staff team: info@cagoxfordshire.org.uk

If you’re attending, please let us know in advance if you have any accessibility requirements, or if you aren’t sure how best to travel to the venue. Email us info@cagoxfordshire.org.uk and we’ll do our very best to help.

What’s Eynsham Repair Cafe?

It’s a community pop-up event, where people who like to fix things meet people with things to repair. We want to help people to use things for longer, thus saving money and reducing waste. With tea and cake! 🙂

Why come?
Have you got something that needs fixing and you are unsure of how to do it, or lack the tools? A button that needs replacing; a toaster that doesn’t work; a vase that needs gluing? Well, don’t throw them away, bring them to our Repair Cafe and our volunteers will have go at fixing them, offer advice or or show you how to do it.

No catch!
We are volunteers wanting to help each other. This means that we cannot guarantee to fix something but we will certainly try and help you out. We don’t charge for repairs but always happy to accept donations!

Interested?
Then come along! If you like the idea and want to get involved, to help run the event or to fix things, please get in touch!
