Alton Repair Cafe

“When you have enough, you don’t need more.” Reducing our consumption of new stuff and therefore waste is a key way of lowering carbon emissions.

Alton Repair Café (see their Facebook page for dates and times) holds regular sessions mostly in the Alton Community Centre, but also in the Public Gardens in the summer. Volunteers offer free help with repairs to clothes and textiles, mechanical and small electrical items and bikes. Email altonrepaircafe21@gmail.com
