repair cafeWe are hoping to establish a Moorlands Repair Cafe project this year, initially based in Leek, but if successful look to expand into other Moorlands towns and villages in the future. The basic idea is to repair items to prevent them being sent to landfill, saving people money, saving resources and also building up skills across our community. There is also a social element, bringing people together to share and support each other. We have visited Repair Cafes in Macclesfield, Congleton and Buxton and now hope to set up a scheme in the Moorlands. We need fixers and a  support team to look after the finances, room bookings, promotion and recruitment on more volunteers.

We have access to resources on how to set up  Repair Cafe, and on March 5th we will be explaining how you can get involved. More details at  Moorlands Repair Cafe.
