James Pickstone from The Restart Project visited Whitby to run a repair café at the Eskmouth Scouts Hall on Tuesday 26th February. He was supported by Charlotte, Jo and Dan from Totally Socially who assisted in the process of running the session.

Repair Cafes are where people come together to teach each other how to fix their broken or slowed down items. The data is collected in order to inform manufacturers of the faults so that they are able to make more sustainable items in the future. The type of items that can be repaired are small, portable electrical items.

On the day we very kindly had people who offered to not only fix electrical items but also a lady with her sewing machine who offered to repair fabric items.

Repair Cafes can happen in a variety of ways and are not confined to any particular venue. The only limits are the imagination!

If you are interested in Repair Cafes or can see how this might work in your area please get in touch we will be happy to help.
