It was amazing, thank you to everyone who supported the launch, this includes Wivenhoe Cllr Mike Newton and Essex Cllr Malcolm Buckley.

Essex County Council Waste and Recycling team helped the Wivenhoe based Repair Cafe organise the event in Colchester library. over 30 household items were effectively repaired on the day. Volunteer repairer Lesley swung into action with her sewing machine and extended the life of several garments, thank you Lesley. Bikes, DVD players and more were repaired. For a reasonable cost the Repair Cafe is now able to repair larger household appliances such as washing machines, dryers and dishwashers so please do call 07799 494 797.

If you are replacing your larger appliances please consider donating your old machines to the Repair Cafe we are now able to divert more items from landfill and give more people the chance to reuse and recycle larger household items.

Councillor Malcolm Buckley cut the ribbon which launched the Repair Cafe. East Anglian Times and the Gazette. took  photos of yesterdays event and next week you can see the fun we had. The launch marks the start of weekly Repair Cafes in Wivenhoe Library; 5:30pm-7pm every Thursday' and The Waiting Room; every Thursday, 7:30pm-9pm.
