Repair Cafe in the Blackdowns @ Hemyock Village Hall
Jan 26 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
The background of the Repair Cafe initiative is that it was set up originally in Amsterdam and has widened its reach to many other countries. The idea is to repair and re-use rather than dispose of broken household items. The list is varied and includes electrical household items, computers, bicycles, clothing and textiles, toys, garden tools, but really anything you have which is broken and might be repaired can be considered, rather than throwing it away!
Repair Cafes will be held on a bi-monthly basis with a group of volunteer repairers on hand to help you repair any broken items you wish to bring along. A stock of repair materials for some items will be available, and if you have any materials for repairing your broken items, please feel free to bring these along.
Please keep in touch with our Facebook page for more details of dates of cafes.

CAG Devon Skill Share @ Newcourt Community Centre
Mar 16 @ 10:00 am – 3:30 pm

This will be the second CAG Devon Skill Share, bringing together groups from the growing CAG network, and beyond to share skills, ideas and inspiration around environmental community action. This year we will be collaborating with Eden Project Communities so, as well as sharing experience and skills with other CAGs, there will be the chance to hear from them and connect with their network of Devon-based community change makers. 4 new groups have recently joined the network and there will be a lot of structured and unstructured opportunities to connect with, inspire and learn from each other.

The booking will be free and there will be a small charge on a sliding scale ranging from free to £10, to cover the costs of the day. You will be able to book on once we have confirmed the programme and set up a booking page, which we hope to do by early December. To give you a taste of what to look forward to the sessions will include:

  • Food surplus projects, including community fridges;
  • Community plastic projects
  • Keeping your group active, including filling the core roles;
    Shout about It! Raising the profile or your group of project
  • Engaging new people from your community
  • Feeling overwhelmed? Avoiding burnout
  • Safeguarding

We will update here once the booking page has been finalised.
