The next date for the Tattenhall Repair Cafe is Sunday 29th October
Have you heard about the Repair Cafe? A Repair Cafe is where people take broken household equipment which would otherwise be thrown out, and Transition Tattenhall runs one here. It is held monthly, on the last Sunday of the month, in the Barbour institute, from 10am-12 noon.
Refreshments are available, hence the 'cafe' name. We try to fix each item, returning it to working order, saving it from landfill and associated carbon emissions, and saving you having to buy new. We try not to work on equipment that you would otherwise pay someone to fix, but we like fixing things that are too low in value for a paid repair. We will have a look at most household items (except large white goods), and we also sharpen tools and knives.
A full list of what we can look at is on the Transition Tattenhall web site What can the Repair
Cafe repair – Transition Tattenhall Our repairs are free, but we welcome a donation. We started with crowd-funding and grants from CW&C and Tattenhall Parish Council, but we do have ongoing costs and donations help with these.
The Repair Cafe has run every month (bar Christmas) since starting in July 2022. To date we have fixed 151 items, saving we estimate 3.6 tonnes of CO2, and about €7550 for people
of Tattenhall not needing to replace (basis £50/item). We have a great team of repairers, but if you would like to join them, please do get in touch, using the details below.
.Next time you are about to throw something out, think again and bring it to us at the Tattenhall Repair Cafe.-we may well be able to help.
