Repair Café Launches in Putney

Published: 01/05/2022 By Allan Fuller

Don't chuck things out - get them fixed at St Mary's Church. 

A new initiative is being launched in Putney to reduce the amount of waste we generate and help the environment.

Repair cafes have become increasingly popular and one is being set up at St. Mary’s Church on Putney High Street (SW15 1SN).

The pilot launch day was on Saturday 23 April from 10am to 12pm. 

You are asked to bring your broken items and a group of volunteers will do our best to fix them. The repair workshop normally operates 10.00-12.00hrs, 14.00-19.00hrs on Tuesdays. Visits on request.

Items that you can bring along include:
* clothing / leather
 * furniture / wood, plastic or ceramic objects
 * scissors and shears
 * electrical appliances
 * bicycles

No charge is made but a voluntary contribution will be appreciated.

If you’d like to volunteer to help out at the repair café either with repair or admin, email stating how you can help.
