Our first Repair Café was a resounding success. We were visited by our local MP Heidi Allen, her husband Phil, and our County Councillor Lina Nieto Pacheco.
We had 58 items brought to the café of which 25 were from walk ins. There were:
- 48 successful repairs
- 2 repairs pending (taken home to finish repairs)
- 3 partial repairs
- Only 5 items couldn’t be repaired.
That’s a fantastic success rate! Thank you so much to all volunteers for their help in making it such a fun event. I’ve had lots of people asking when I’m organising the next one – watch this space for news!
