Saturday 10 November 2018 11.00am - 2.00pm

Enfield Repair Café

St Paul's Centre, 102a Church St, EN2 6AR  

Do you have a bike sitting in your garage that you’ve been meaning to get repaired? Perhaps your favourite trousers are in need of a new waistband? Want to give that blouse you love a new lease of life? Or maybe you have an old item of furniture that you can’t bear to part with but is in need of a spruce up?

North London Waste Authority is excited to be launching a new series of Repair Café events, to help you repair your damaged belongings and fix your broken household items for FREE. By repairing items we already own, it stops us having to buy new stuff. This has a positive impact on the environment (and our wallets) as raw materials can be preserved and items are prevented from becoming waste.

What are Repair Cafés?

Repair Cafés are events where you can book a 30 minute repair slot online and then bring along old or damaged belongings such as clothes, small household furniture items, and bicycles to be potentially fixed by repair specialists, for free. In addition to fixing an item, the repair specialists will train you one-on-one throughout the repair process, so that you can repair your item yourself in the future. A Repair Café is not a place for people to simply drop off broken items, but you will get to interact with the repair specialists, learn skills and build a relationship with the processes and materials that go into the manufacturing of products.

The Repair Cafés will be taking place in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest on different weekends from the end of September. North London residents are only able to attend the Repair Cafés taking place in the borough where they live and proof of address may be requested on entry.

Saturday 13 October, 11am to 2pm at St Pauls Centre, Enfield Town

Saturday 10 November, 11am to 2pm at St Pauls Centre, Enfield Town
