Never one to sit back and let life pass her by, that there Kate Cardigan from the wonderful Lichfield Lore is involved with the wonderful Lichfield Repair Cafe project – which continues it’s regular run at their new home this Saturday (Saturday, 20th 2018) at Curborough Community Centre, Lichfield from 2pm until 5pm.
Kate, who’s more usually known for her excellent work with Lichfield local history group, Lichfield Discovered and other projects, started a community project to help people repair, recycle and put back to good use things that my be broken or need some love.
This looks like a great way to have fun, meet up with other like minded folk and also learn some new skills.
If you’re unsure where to find Curborough Community Centere, check out their contact page here, and the address for satnav wranglers is 37, Reynolds Close, Lichfield Ws13 7NY.
I’ll let Kate explain:
The Lichfield Repair & Share cafe launches at Curborough Community Centre on Saturday 15th September between 2pm and 5pm. As a way of reducing waste whilst learning new skills, we have a team of volunteer repairers on hand to show people how to try and mend their broken or damaged items, rather than throw them away.
Few new things for tomorrow: a craft corner, so bring along any projects you’re working on and take some ideas home with you; info on local wildlife and a games area.
Volunteers from the centre will be running a cafe with hot and cold drinks and cakes. Whilst there is no charge, voluntary donations are appreciated!
The cafe will be taking place at Curborough on the 3rd Saturday of every month and we are always looking for more people to get involved whether they want to offer their skills as a repairer or run a workshop. To find our more information, or to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, join the group’s Facebook page Lichfield Repair Café or follow us on Twitter @lichfieldshare.
For more information, contact Kate Gomez at email@example.com or joing the Lichfield Repair & Share group on Facebook here.
Many thanks as ever!
