Repair Cafe Monmouth
Fixing household items for free in order to reduce waste
Repair Cafes tend to be monthly events where volunteers fix household items for free in order to reduce waste, teach skills and bring the community together – repairing items such as toasters, kettles, vacuum cleaners, jeans, bags, shirts, toys, ornaments and bikes.
The Monmouth Repair Cafe is one of 50 in Wales that operates under the umbrella of Repair Cafe Wales. Unfortunately our first event in February 2020 was cancelled because of the floods that hit Monmouth, the second was a great success, and then Covid-19 struck.
We hope to resume monthly events just as soon as possible – and also to acquire a permanent home at Bridges Community Centre as part of the Welsh Government initiative on the Circular Economy and working alongside a Library of Things and the Monmouth Community Fridge.

Come to the next one
We started in February 2020 with the intention of holding a Repair Cafe event on the third Sunday each month. We look forward to resuming normal service just as soon as Covid-19 restrictions allow.
