The Hastings Repair Cafe is a place where Hastings residents can come and have broken or damaged belongings fixed instead of throwing them out and buying more.
The Hastings Repair Cafe is making this happen with free events where people come along with broken or damaged belongings and local volunteer experts do their best to repair them.
The Repair Cafe recognises that many people do noy have the tools or expertise so end up throwing items out.
To that end he has lined up a series of different venues to be a part of a trial – with the goal of making the events permanent.
The Repair Cafe isn’t just for those who need to get something fixed – but also for those who have skills and want to help do the fixing and teaching.
“We know not everyone has the skills to repair things, so we want to start educating people and actually make fixing achievable.”
