Flackwell Heath Repair Cafe

Every year, billions of items that could be repaired end up in landfill. We would like to try and reduce the impact of this within our village – every little helps! Under this new initiative, spearheaded by local resident and FHRA member Pauline Howland, we are hoping to set up a monthly drop-in cafe on a Saturday morning, where for a small donation, residents can have certain items repaired by a team of volunteer repairers.

To get this off the ground, we are looking for volunteer repairers for the following:

  • Textiles (sewing / mending etc)
  • Garden equipment
  • Wooden items
  • Toys
  • Electronics (including PAT testers)
  • Bikes
  • Tool & knife sharpening
  • Anything else that might turn up!

It need not be a regular commitment, but if you can give a couple of hours a month (or every few months), please get in touch with Pauline on 07876 744188.
