Wivenhoe Repair Reuse Recycle Enterprise cic's profile photoLast year I noticed there was an increasing amount of unwanted household goods going to landfill. So I decided to start a new enterprise to tackle the challenge...
My idea was pretty simple. Use my skills to help local residents repair and recycle their household items. Preventing them going to landfill, saving everyone money while protecting our environment...
Needless to say, I jumped at the chance!
In addition to saving money and the environment, my aim is to help train local people to repair things for themselves.
I'll be running regular open cafe style workshops at the Wivenhoe Library every Thursday 5:30 - 7pm, where residents can learn to fix things properly for themselves. I also hope to run a programme of training and employment opportunities for those who want to build their confidence, develop new skills or get back themselves into work.
We are pleased to announce we have been short listed on Colchester Big Choice. Please vote for us by clicking on the link below;
