GBC REPAIR CAFE INITIATIVE
Guildford Council is looking for local volunteers to support this scheme. The idea behind the repair café is to get people to repair ‘things’ as opposed to throwing them away just because they show slight defects. The repair café allows people to pop in with articles of clothing, furniture, bikes, etc. and learn how to repair them under the supervision of volunteers who have the practical know-how.
The benefits are: residents will learn the skills to carry out any future repairs/ it will help build communities/ it helps cut carbon emissions and reduce the amount of materials going to landfill.
If you are an electrician, seamstress, carpenter or general handy person and would like to volunteer and get involved with the Repair café, please contact the Climate Change Team at Guildford borough Council: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01483 444509
