Are you handy? Do you hate waste? Could you share your repair skills and give broken items a new lease of life?

We need skilled volunteers to act as ‘Fixers’ at a series of Repair Café events in Bournemouth.

Transition Bournemouth and Bournemouth Council want to encourage local people to consider repairing damaged items, even if they are unsure how, by ‘asking the expert’ at a Repair Café and learning new skills for next time as the item is fixed.

IS09AI3H4We are looking for various ‘Fixers’ to give as much or as little time as they can spare, including people who are handy with:

  • Clothing/textiles
  • Small electrical appliances
  • Bicycles
  • Furniture/wooden objects

Not a repair expert but fancy being involved?

Repair Cafés also need welcome volunteers to act as a host or hostess. You provide everyone with coffee and tea, help new visitors at the reception table and act as a contact for the ‘Fixers’ and the visitors in the Repair Café.

Interested? To find out more come and have a chat on from 7:30pm on Wednesday 10th June at Kino Lounge (39 Bourne Close, Bournemouth BH2 6DP). Email us at transitionbournemouth@gmail.com or call 01202 451654 to let us know you will be attending or to find out more.
