Repair Volunteer Gathering Cumbria


Saturday 17 June 2023
12:30 – 16:00 GMT
Space2Create, Kendal

An opportunity for repair cafe volunteers throughout Cumbria to get together, share best practice, share ideas and share skills.

Are you a volunteer at a repair cafe in Cumbria? Whether you’re a mender or an organiser we’d love to hear from you. Plus, if you’re thinking of setting up a repair cafe you’d be welcome too.

Join volunteers from Simply Repair South Lakes to share best practice from Cumbria and elsewhere, share ideas, share skills, share the latest repair news including a ‘right to repair’ update, and share food!

(NB Ideally we want one or two volunteers from each group, maximum 4 per group)


What works well for you? What doesn’t work so well?
Are there any types of repairs that you struggle with?
Are there any repairs that your group does well that you think would be useful to share with others?
Do you need advice on the planning and admin side such as insurance, marketing or recruiting volunteers?
Are there any burning issues around repair/repair cafes that you’d like to discuss?
We’ll send out an agenda based on your responses nearer the time, but the event will start with a shared, light lunch and introductions.

Any questions please e mail
