Chesham’s Big Clean Switch

Repair café

2021 is going to be an exciting year for the cafe – with our first Chesham Repair Cafe in September and monthly events hopefully ongoing.

First Chesham Repair Cafe a great success!

We all had such a great morning at The Bagnall Project at the very first Chesham Repair Café on Sunday 12th September.

All of the volunteers absolutely kicked it out of the park seeing over 21 items.

From this a huge 14 items were reparid and they gave advice on 3 for customers to take home and finish.

They made over 30 cups of tea and provided the most delicious homemade banana bread, cookies and flapjacks that everyone loved!

These photos are just the tip of the iceberg (as I forgot to take many!) but our amazing volunteer  photographer was on the ball and more wonderful photos will follow!

Thank you everyone who gave up their time today – it was a huge success! We are busy planning next month’s event and will share more news on the date soon.

In the meantime if you have any questions email repaircafe@sustainablechesham.org.uk
