Share & Repair Café

Regular Share & Repair Cafe with Table Top Sale and other stalls.

In October 2021 we held the first Crich Share & Repair Cafe in partnership with Art Share Crich's annual exhibition of art and craft works made by local people. 

Both groups encourage residents to share theirs skills with others in the community through fixing things and sharing their artistic flair.

In June 2022 we joined up with the Glebe's Table Top Sale. This proved to be a winning formula.

Volunteers come together from the Glebe and Crich Share & Repair Cafe to share their skills and provide a space for the community to sell their unwanted second hand items or repair their broken items to prevent them going into landfill.

Items repaired have included a wooden card playing table with broken hinges, a teddy bear that need stuffing, a remote control for a whirlpool bath, a bike that needed a service, broken arm on some sunglasses, split seam on a dress, chicken house door, plus tool sharpening.

Volunteers share their repairing skills by showing people how to fix their own items and give demonstrations on things like how to use a sewing machine, a soldering iron and how to make plant milk using an Almond Cow!

We ask for donations for the repairs and many people bring delicious homemade cakes to sell in the café, which all help to keep the Crich Share & Repair Café open.

We welcome new volunteers with open arms! Roles include fixing things, serving in the café, organising, welcoming customers and helping them complete our repair forms. If you can help please get in touch by emailing
