Does anyone have any skills they could offer to help with something like this?? I'd be happy to organise/advertise and coordinate a fortnightly/monthly 'fixing cafe' if we could have a bank of people to share their skills on the 'fixing' side of things.
I already have a couple of people who could offer bike repair sessions. Just need electronic/technological folk - and no reason why we couldn't think of any other things that we could also repair - eg, textiles/clothing.
If everyone paid a nominal contribution to have an item fixed, it could pay for room hire and people's time. As a society, we really need to think about repairing more and replacing less. Msg me if you'd be interested. Or tag someone who could be interested to help on the fixing side.
