WNC : Interested in volunteering at repair cafes?

A message from Emma Parry at WNC regarding volunteering at repair cafes.

From: Emma Parry <Emma.Parry@westnorthants.gov.uk>

Good Morning All

West Northants Council (WNC) plan to host a programme of pop-up repair cafés during June and July within WNC libraries.  They are planned to run between 10am and 2pm on Saturdays. 

The events will be promoted to members of the public who have small broken electrical items e.g., soup maker, hairdryer etc who can bring their item along to see if it can be repaired. 

We are looking for volunteers with suitable skills (and hopefully tools) to come along to the repair cafés to assess and, where possible, repair electrical items brought in by members of the public.

Whilst these events are one-off events, we hope to stimulate interest within local communities for running repair cafés on a regular basis which will help reduce waste and build local community resilience.

Dates and Locations:

Brixworth library – 8th June

Central library – 15th June

Towcester library – 22nd June

Brackley library –29th June

Weston Favell library – 6th July

Hunsbury library –13th July

If you are interested in finding out more or would like to volunteer to help with repairs, please let me know.

Best wishes,
