REPAIRS: The Horsham Repair Cafe offers a fantastic free monthly repair service for your broken and worn out items. Come and join us to learn how to repair and mend, save money and be part of a community sharing crafts, knowledge and creative skills. The Repair Cafe celebrated its 1st birthday in October 2018 where we announced the expansion of our service due to popular demand. As from Saturday 3rd November the clothes repairs will be moving to the afternoon when some of our textile volunteers will be demonstrating and teaching people how to carry out creative upcycling. As from Saturday 5th January 2019 we are delighted to announce the launch of a clothes swapping service.
CLEAN ENERGY SWITCHING: Each month between 10am-1pm (*afternoon by arrangement) we offer an energy cost comparison and switching to 100% clean and renewable energy. You will need to bring a recent electricity (and gas if you use it), the process only takes about 5 minutes! Or you can carry out the comparison and switch from the comfort of your armchair here using https://bigcleanswitch.org/sussexgreen/.
REDUCE YOUR PLASTICS: Each month between 10am – 1pm we offer a household and personal cleaning product bottle refill service, learn more here. In partnership with Earthkind you can buy plastic free, organic pantry items like pasta, rice, pulses, dried fruit, seeds, chocolate chips and olive oil. You need to bring a container, or we can supply a recycled paper bag. Taking advantage of these refill services will reduce the number of plastic bottles which need to be made, recycled, reduce single-use plastics, helping the planet and saving you money.
REFRESHMENTS AND BOOKING: Come along for a cuppa and a chat, if you are bringing something to repair or remake booking is recommended, here. Donations are welcome for any repairs undertaken and refreshments. Children are invited as long as they are supervised.
HELPERS: We are always looking for volunteers for the Horsham Repair Cafe and Sussex Green Living’s environmental awareness and education work. Please contact us if you can spare a little time – general helpers, refreshments, technical repair, craft skills, website design, data management, any help welcome!
