Description

Got something too valuable to throw away that you've been meaning to fix, but need some help to do it?

Whatever it is, bring it along and we'll help you to figure it out!

There is an event page set up here if you would be so kind as to RSVP, as it will help us to come prepared on the day.

This will be the first of hopefully many pop-up repair cafés in Forres, and is being hosted by Transition Town Forres, a community group and registered charity dedicated to making Forres and surrounding areas more resilient to a changing economy, and less dependent on declining fossil fuels, by empowering local people.


Outcome:

On top of the electronics listed here, many clothes were repaired, advice given, and skills shared. One very stuck plastic zipper on a jacket proved to be a sticking point.

This event also got some local press attention.
