Don't bin it, get it fixed by Redditch Repair Cafe urges MP Rachel Maclean

REDDITCH’S brilliant Repair Cafe has won the back of local MP Rachel Maclean.

Mrs Maclean visited the Cafe last Saturday, January 26, to meet the team of volunteer repairers and the good people who keep the service going.

The dedicated group are on hand every last Saturday of the month at Community House on Easemore Road to fix items otherwise destined for the tip.

The service is free of charge and residents can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake whilst their items are repaired.

“We throw away things far too easily these days when they could be fixed,” said the MP.

“That’s why it’s so great to see Repair Café Redditch helping to reduce the amount of stuff we send to the tip each year by fixing our broken items.

“Next time something of mine breaks I’ll be thinking again about throwing it away, especially when the repairers at Repair Café Redditch will have a go at fixing it.”

Repair Café Redditch are always on the lookout for more volunteers. For more information please visit: www.repaircaferedditch.org.uk/
