Repair Cafe launches at Redbridge Central Library
The Ilford Repair Cafe is launched and a new community meeting space. Our 3 repairers Hamant, Dilip and Michael tried their skills on 10 broken items. Four items were repaired, two can be sorted with an easy spare part, and others are still under review. We were pleased with this because the 20+ people who came along or chatted with us were themselves concerned about landfill and had broken items.
We loved the vibe of the visitors and conversations. Lab Central is a funky community space and we are indebted to Maria Reguera, Developmental Librarian, and Vision for their partnership in this new endeavour.
