New Buxton Repair Cafe

A new Repair Cafe is aiming to stop a skip's worth of stuff from going to landfill in its first year of operation. Transition Buxton held their first Repair Cafe on 28th September and got off to a flying stat, looking at 35 items and mending most of them. Organisers said the smile on the face of a boy, whose pair of robotic toys were fixed, was priceless!

Buxton has joiied over 1500 other places around the world, and at least seven other locations in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, in supporting local people to extend the life of ‘stuff’ and save it from going to landfill. 
Their next Repair Café will be on 26th October at the Methodist Church in the Market Place. People are invited to bring along broken item(s) and the repairers will work with you to try to fix your item. There is no charge for the service, but donations are very welcome. Transition Buxton are very grateful to the Bingham Trust for a small grant to help get the Repair Café up and running.
