Repair Cafe Volunteer
There is a new group on the horizon in Wincanton - a Repair Cafe, a place to bring that broken radio or toaster to see if it can be fixed. And if it can't be fixed, then what about turning it into something else?!
We have a small group of volunteers who are interested in getting this started, so we are looking for other volunteers who might like to get involved, to join a rota of people who would like to fix stuff rather than see it thrown out, and would like to help.
So if you like sewing, repairing furniture, mending bikes - or just want to stop stuff being thrown into landfill and would like to get involved then get in touch!
Initially it will open one Saturday a month in Wincanton - but we can't open until Covid restrictions have been lifted (hopefully soon!).
Although this is not run by The Balsam Centre, we are working with the local group to help them find volunteers.
