Repair Café is coming to Kingston Library Community Room on the 1st Saturday morning of every month, starting on the 4th February 2023.
Repair Café Kingston is a community initiative, under the umbrella of Transition Town Kingston, promoting repair and skill-sharing as sustainable alternatives to throwing things away. Residents can bring their broken items to fix on the spot with the help of experienced volunteer repairers. All repairs and refreshments are free, though donations towards our costs are very welcome.
Please read the House Rules for volunteers and visitors before coming along.
Volunteering for Repair Cafe: please read the House Rules, the Repair Cafe Manual, guidelines for working safely and other useful information on our page for volunteers. If you would then be happy to help with fixing things, please contact us, outlining in the first instance what kind of repairs you could do and your availability, and letting us have your contact details for further updates and information.
To find out more about the Repair Café or volunteering to fix things: see Transition Town Kingston’s website and/or come along to one of our Saturday morning sessions to meet us and have a chat.
With thanks to Kingston Library for the use of its lovely community space, and to John Lewis Kingston for the seed-funding that enabled us to start this project.
