Sherman Theatre is delighted to host Repair Café Wales – Cathays on the first Saturday of every month from 7 September 2019.
Repair Cafe Wales is a collection of volunteers who get together and fix items that the public bring in, for free. Their goal is to reduce landfill waste, foster a feeling of community, and save people some money in the process. So, if you have a broken toaster, or bike, or clothes, or any household item really; don't buy a new one, just bring it to the Repair Cafe and get it repaired for free!
Typical repairs include; basic bicycle maintenance, electrical appliance repair, computing assistance, sewing, ornament repair, and woodworking; though they will have a look at most things (except Microwaves as they are too dangerous).
Sherman Theatre’s Executive Director Julia Barry has said ‘We are very proud to be hosting Repair Café Wales every month from September. The Sherman is a resource for our local community and by hosting these sessions we are delighted able to give members of the community access to this brilliant initiative. We hope as many people as possible will come to take advantage of this service.’
Repair Café Cathays is hosted in Sherman Theatre’s foyer, Senghennydd Road, CF24 4YE on the first Saturday of every month. The Repair Café will run from 10am-1pm, with no further big repairs being taken on after 12.30pm so the session doesn’t overrun.
Got any questions? Just drop Repair Café Wales a message on Facebook and they will do their best to ensure a repairer is available to fix your item.
More fixers are always welcome - come along even if it is just to find out what is going on, and tell your friends. See you there!
