THE FIRST REPAIR CAFÉ IN WEST SUSSEX WILL OPEN ON SAT. OCTOBER 7th AT THE QUAKER MEETING HOUSE IN THE WORTHING ROAD NEAR HORSHAM BUS STATION.
The café has been started to do more to help reduce the number of items that are going into landfill every year (saving us money and helping the environment by not having to make so many new items). They would also like to encourage people to rediscover old skills and learn new ones. The first Café will be on Saturday October 7th at The Quaker Meeting House in Horsham, and monthly thereafter on the first Saturday of each month with a revolving theme. The volunteers are ready, the cakes are being made and the first customer already booked in! It would be good if you could find time to drop in and have a coffee and a cake on that morning - the more the merrier. You can come with or without items to be repaired.
More info can be found on their website: www.horshamrepaircafe.org.uk
