Never one to sit back and let life pass her by, that there Kate Cardigan from the wonderful Lichfield Lore is involved with the excellent Lichfield Repair Cafe project – which continues it’s regular residency this coming Saturday afternoon (Saturday 18th May 2019) 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 initiative 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 twatnav wranglers is 37, Reynolds Close, Lichfield Ws13 7NY.
I’ll let Kate explain:
The Lichfield Repair & Share cafe meets again at Curborough Community Centre on Saturday 18th May 2019 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.
Bring your broken household items along to see if our team of volunteer repairs can help you fix them! As well as the repairs, we’ll also be running two fab free workshops – how to grow your own veg & making a fabric flower brooch. Or just pop in for a chat & a brew! All welcome, no charge but voluntary donations welcome 🙂
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!
We will be planting up a community raised bed outside the centre if people bring any spare plants they have, and also doing a litter pick.
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!
