Support a repair cafe in West Norwood

Could you spend a few hours a month volunteering to help set up and run a new repair cafe in West Norwood?

A Repair Cafe helps you fix your things and use them for longer. Support your local community and help to repair household items from bicycles, toasters, lamps to clocks, radios, vacuums, clothes, ceramics and woodwork. 

They are interested in hearing from a range of people, not only those with repair skills, but also people that can run the cafe.
