Haddenham Repair Cafe

Re-starting this Saturday 6th November 2021

09:30 to 12:30 – Haddenham Village Hall

The Haddenham Repair Cafe is a project of Zero Carbon Haddenham, and its aim is to encourage ‘repairing’ rather than ‘replacing’ as the logical first step when things break. Why? Because repairing keeps things out of landfill and reduces un-necessary consumption. After launching in 2020 we were forced to close again in March of that year when the Covid-19 pandemic first swept the world.

We hope to be able to help you tackle most repairs where a little glue or a replacement screw or part is needed. There will be some things we are not likely to be able to fix – broken screens on mobile phones for example! And we have to draw the line where things are not portable – large pieces of furniture for example. Some things are designed so they are hard to repair so we may not be able to help – but try us! We like a challenge! We don’t charge for helping you but we do invite donations to help cover our costs – more details at https://zeroch.org/donate/

We hope to resume holding this event each month in the near future but as a taster we will be in the foyer of Haddenham Village Hall on Saturday 6th November for you to either bring along anything for repair or just have a chat with the team if you want to get involved in helping. If you cannot make it on Saturday, you can contact us by email at repaircafe@nullzeroch.org for more details or you can book an item in for a repair by one of our team at https://zeroch.org/repair-cafe
