Hungerford Repair Café had another successful morning on Saturday 9th July in the Croft Hall helping 45 visitors to fix their broken items.Our aim is to help our community learn how to repair their own things in an enjoyable and sociable setting.
There were a variety of things to fix including a tyre inflator, several items of clothing and a stereo all in need of some TLC.The volunteers helped to mend 73% of the items brought in, and were able to advise the owners about how to fix or obtain spare parts for a further 13% of them. In this way we saved about 77 Kg of waste going into landfill or other recycling facilities.
The café served tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits to volunteers and visitors alike.
