Sandbach Partnership is looking to bring you Sandbach’s first Repair Café!
UK households generated 222.2 million tonnes of total waste in 2018 (source: Gov.uk). With a focus on waste reduction, we hope that we can have a small impact with this proposed new initiative, whilst also sharing skills and enhancing community cohesion right here in Sandbach.
The Repair Café Sandbach will be affiliated with Repair Café Wales (as there is no organisation for England), where Sandbach has already been listed as a location.
If you enjoy meeting people, tinkering or are a skilled individual with some spare time, we would be grateful of your support in facilitating our repair stations.
We are currently in the process of gathering volunteers and are holding a volunteer induction event on Saturday 19th August at 11am St Peter’s Church Hall Elworth. Here we will induct our hosts and volunteers, explain how the cafés run and answer any of your questions.
As a volunteer you do not need to be at all events and any time you volunteer is gratefully received.
Click the button below to register as a volunteer today, complete your details and select ‘Sandbach’ as your location.
What’s the plan
We are in the process of securing venues, which we hope will be in 3 or 4 rotated locations on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
Depending the skills available from our volunteers, possible repair services could range from re-attaching those missing buttons, computer diagnosis to bicycle repairs and much more (further details to follow).
The cafés are aiming to be up and running from September and we are looking forward to getting to grips with your items.
If you have any questions about this initiative please contact email@example.com.
