Chailey Repair Café built upon its success when it opened its doors again on 8th February – we attempted 88 repairs, including an ornate vase, two chairs, several clocks, some CD players, radios, lamps, a sewing machine, a humidifier and a pressure washer. Visitors came from as far afield as Tunbridge Wells and Brighton!!
The Café’s new knife sharpening service continues to be very popular. Don’t forget to start thinking about checking out your cycles and garden machinery – Spring is just around the corner!
We are going to be on the road this year, with appearances at Barcombe Eco Fair on 7th March and Newick Village meeting on 18th March and are very pleased to have been invited back to run a mini Repair Café at Chailey’s St George’s Fete on 25th April.
Chailey Repair Café is part of a world-wide movement where volunteer experts repair things free of charge – although a donation towards running costs is invited. Anyone can bring along broken items or clothing needing repair from home, and have a cuppa and a cake while they wait!
Chailey Repair Café next opens at Chailey Parish Hall 10am – 1pm on 14th March 2020, and then normally on the second Saturday of each month..
