Thursday 1st March: How to organise a Repair Cafe

Confirmed when booking 19:30-21:00 add to google calendar
An evening for anyone who has ever considered (either fleetingly or seriously!) running a Repair Cafe in their community. Cambridgeshire is recognised as a UK hub for Repair Cafes and we have a strong team that supports new groups and individuals who'd like to have a go.

This evening will introduce you to how they are organised and answer any questions you may have. We cover venue, publicity, safety, recruiting volunteers and repairers etc. Repair Cafes not only keep resources out of landfill but are brilliant community building events too. The feedback from visitors is almost 100% positive and the organisers tend to find it really rewarding too.

This evening is for information only, there's no commitment to running a Repair Cafe at all. If you'd like to join us on 1st March, please email Nicole by Fri 23rd Feb giving your name, contact details and area in which you are thinking of organising a Cafe. You can also call Nicole on 01223 301842.

The event will be held in the Cambridge city centre, more details will be provided closer to the time. More...

Wednesday 7th March: An evening for Repair Cafe organisers and repairers

Barclay's Eagle Labs, 7-8 Clifton Court, Cherry Hinton Rd, CB1 7BN 19:00-21:00 add to google calendar
Repair Cafes have been phenomenally successful in our region. The Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network would like to invite all existing repairers and Repair Café organisers to come together in this exciting Cambridge Maker Space.

We'll be celebrating what we've achieved together, sharing interesting repair news and updates and working with you to consider how we continue to thrive and make a difference. Topics we'll be considering when thinking about our evolution include: promoting skillsharing between repairers, which (if any) related campaigns might we support and how we increase the learning experiences of visitors to Repair Cafes.

We'd love to see you. There'll be time to share a drink with people throughout the area and a there'll be a tour of the Maker Space and its gear! Please let us know if you are coming by emailing Nicole or use the booking form on the Circular Cambridge website. More...

This week we will be having fun helping out on the farm from 10:00am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4.00, sharing a lunch and a chat in between. You can join us for the morning or afternoon session, or both.

Family friendly, everyone is very welcome! See our blog to get a flavour of what workdays are like. It will be good healthy fun, a great chance to see our local countryside, and how food is grown on a large scale.
