Making Chesterfield more Sustainable

Repair Café

Repair Cafe Chez

In 2018 we are running regular  Repair Cafés EVERY MONTH between 10am and 3pm, upstairs at Monkey Park Social Enterprise, Chester Street, Chesterfield S40 1DN.

Future dates booked so far:  March 10th, April 14th, May 12th, June 9th, July 14th.

mp mainAt previous Repair Cafés we  have fixed a wide variety of broken items, including a Purse/ filofax zip, a Child’s dress zip, a Coat pocket, a Trouser pocket, a Hat adjustment to handle the fact that it kept falling off, a DAB radio, a Wind up alarm clock, two Electric scissors, a VGA Selector Switch, a Sony 3 band FM radio, a pair of Lawn shears that were no longer aligned, a Vacuum cleaner with cough sweet stuck in its throat!, a Toaster, a Wheelbarrow wheel (puncture repair), an Occasional table with a broken leg, an Antique effect planter for conservatory, an Electric kettle with broken switch, a  kettle with handle stuck back on, a Music stand screw with worn thread, an Iron, a Chair that needed a new seat, a Kettle that was clogged up etc. The majority of these items were repaired and will continue to be used, which is a great success!

DSC_0037Our team of repairers continues to grow and gain experience. We are therefore going to hold  regular ‘Repair Cafés , every two months at a Monkey Park on Chester Street, so that we may attract even more people to encourage people to fix things rather than throw them away!

List of Local Repairers

Another thing we are looking to do is to produce a register of small traders who repair things or supply spares for other people to fix things. If you know of a relevant small trader that you could recommend for this list, please let us know, either at the address below or one of our Cafés.
