This event is particularly geared to members of the Cumbria Sustainability Network's community environmental groups, and we'll welcome others with a keen interest in repair & reuse.


Kindly hosted by the good folk at Ragtag Arts, on the day we'll have opportunities to:

- Share ideas and examples of more effective use of resources, including repair and reuse
- Hear from Simply Repair South Lakes about the concepts and benefits of running repair cafes, including best practice guide and opportunities for starting further cafes across Cumbria
- Tour the Scrapstore as a practical example of cutting waste and making more effective use of resources
- Discuss effective ways to start positive engaging conversations on reducing consumption

More Information

Cost: This event is free to attend.

Donations: If you can afford to support CAfS through a donation, this would be hugely appreciated. As a charity, our scope and reach is dependent on the generosity of those who believe in our cause. We thank you for your support.

Timings / refreshments: This free event begins with the opportunity to meet at 12:30 for an informal bring-your-own picnic lunch, hopefully outdoors weather permitting! There will also be hot drinks / cakes available (chargeable) from the Ragtag Arts cafe.
The workshop itself will then begin at 1:30, and ends at 4.

Travel: We recommend use of public transport or active travel to our events wherever practical, although understand this is not always realistic. There is limited free car parking available at Ragtag Arts, therefore we encourage car sharing where possible. We will attempt to link up members of Cumbria Sustainability Network wishing to attend who are travelling from similar directions.

Covid-19: This event will take place with a continuing cautious approach to avoiding Covid-19 transmission, including using well-ventilated spaces and partly outdoors if possible. Please do not travel to this event if you have any Covid-19 symptoms, or have been in recent contact with other positive Covid-19 cases.
