Visit the Repair Cafe in Cheltenham on the 1st Saturday of the month if you have household items which need to be repaired!

Gloucestershire Recycles are running a campaign in March to promote how and where you can repair in Gloucestershire. The campaign will focus on furniture, household items, bicycles, electricals and clothing.
