Repair Cafés

Tues OCT 10th The Royal British Legion Club, Endless Street, SALISBURY
7 pm for 7:30 pm

Broken items can often be replaced with new ones for not much more than it costs to fix them but this means we are throwing away the resources used to make the item, the energy used to make it and as there is no ‘away’ we have to find somewhere to put it. Repair Cafés started in Holland as a response to our ‘throw away society’ to encourage people to cherish and pass on mending skills. Repair Cafés have popped up across the UK and in Wiltshire the Transcoco (Transition Community Corsham) group have run a regular and successful Repair Café in Corsham and Box and a group from Climate Friendly Bradford on Avon held their first Café in the town this May.
Come and find out about what’s involved in running a Repair Café with Jessica from the Waste Team at Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

Join us on the journey

As a community we need to move forward to meet the challenge of future energy shortages and climate change.

Salisbury Transition City has been established to give you an opportunity to help make a difference.

A dynamic, non-political, local organisation, Salisbury Transition City seeks to encourage alternative energy sources, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels such as oil, revitalise local business and maximise the use of neighbourhood resources. And this in turn will help sustain our city and make it an even nicer place to live in!

Explore our website now to see the challenges ahead, how we are facing them and how you can be part of that journey.
