Description

Switch to Repair! It’s happening, we’re booked for Strabane!

We’ve teamed up with Derry City & Strabane District Council & Recycle Your Electricals to bring you more repair events across the district with a special (but not limited to) plug on WEEE (no that’s not a localism, it stands for Waste Electronic & Electrical Equipment).

Electrical & Electronic waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world, so even if you’ve been to past events with a textile repair, we’re sure you’ve noticed the queues at our electrical and laptop tables!

Things we like to fix are:

Small Household Electricals

Laptops & Tablets

Toys (including battery operated)

Sewing Machine Repairs

Textile & Leather Repairs

Small Items of Furniture

General Repairs

Bikes

About the group

Group avatar

Repair Café Foyle

Repair Café Foyle is a 'Repair & Share Foyle' project, initially incubated under the charity, Zero Waste North West, before becoming an independent community interest company.

To date, we have formed a core team of volunteers willing to 'have a wee go' at doing basic repairs on bikes, small household electrical items, woodwork, mechanicals such as sewing machines and clocks, and of course a strong textile team - that includes a leather specialist.

We travel around our community to host venues and are excited to develop our project further. We are very grateful to the team at Repair Cafe Belfast, who has given us invaluable advice as we embarked on our journey. We are also members of the Northern Ireland Resources Network - working to promote sustainable reuse and repair across Northern Ireland.
