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.

If everyone in Gloucestershire repairs one item we could save 600,000 items from being wasted, that's 125 lorries worth of recycling!
