Makerspace Repair Café gets people re-using rather than buying

Basingstoke Green Week at the Makerspace – Sunday. 23 Sept 2018

Residents  came to Basingstoke Makerspace from across the borough  to have their broken items looked at and hopefully repaired, so that they did not have to throw out the broken items.

On hand at the Repair Café was a wealth of local expertise from the volunteers at the Makerspace, as well as members of Basingstoke Shed, the Basingstoke branch of Men’s Shed, a communal workshop experience for men.

A myriad of  other items and objects that came in for repair, not just  mechanical repairs either. Coats, clothing  and electronic items were on the list of repaired items,
