Pitlochry and District Climate Café and Sprout: The Community Eco Hub will be launching a brand-new repair café in Pitlochry next Sunday, the 2nd of October, from 12 noon till 3pm at the Moulin Hall.
Various volunteer repair experts will be on hand including a bike repairer and a textile repairer, who will be able to help repair items free of charge, with tools and materials also available.
Speaking about the Repair Café, Julia Harriman the Pitlochry Repair Café Coordinator said: “Pitlochry Repair Café is a free meeting place on the first Sunday of every month at Moulin Hall, where people can bring things to be repaired by skilled volunteers. For example, clothes, appliances, clothes computers and bikes. Things that would otherwise end up in landfill.”
People are welcome to bring along items from home which need repairing, including toasters, lamps, bikes, clothes, toys and much more.
Repair cafes aim to reduce the mountains of waste generated by items that are often easily repaired, while also creating a place for neighbours and members of the community to interact.
Julia Harriman went on to explain that the Repair Café are looking for volunteers to help out, saying: “Pitlochry Repair Café is looking for volunteers to join us on the first Sunday of every month at Moulin Hall. Either as a skilled repairer, as a receptionist or host, in the promo or press team or as café assistants.”
As well as this café next Sunday, repair cafes will also be held on the 30th of October and 4th of December both from 12 noon till 2pm.
