Launch of Repair Cafe in Big Green Week
We launched a Repair Cafe in Big Green Week on Saturday 18th September 2021.
What a success!
Transition Ilford and residents run a community Eco-friendly Community Market and closed part of the street where Hamant lives and the Repair Café launch was part of this. Hamant and his friend Dilip love repairing things and used to do it at the Ilford Pop Up Green market at the monthly Recycles Ilford bike sales. Now we've linked up with Repair Cafe.
What a glorious sunny day it was!
The team managed to repair electrical and non electrical gadgets. From toasters to sewing machines, the turnout was great and teh repairs kept coming.
We hope to run Repair Cafes monthly but will just see how our first event goes before future plans.
