Do you like fixing things? Join Kingston’s Repair Café!

Repair Café Kingston upon Thames is a neighbourhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to tossing things out. Transition Town Kingston is organising a Repair Café on the first Saturday morning of every month, starting in February 2023, in Kingston Library, where residents can bring their broken items to fix on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers.

Repair Café Kingston upon Thames is looking for local residents with a range of skills who could be our repair experts, sharing their knowledge with their neighbours during the Repair Café sessions. We are especially looking for people who enjoy fixing:

* clothing / textiles                  * bicycles

* electrical appliances           * furniture / wooden objects

* china                                    * ?????

In addition, we are also looking for people could help with the role of host / hostess at the meetings. You would provide coffee, tea, biscuits and cake, welcome visitors and serve as a contact point for both visitors and repairers in the Repair Café.
