THE Repair Cafe in Leamington has fixed its 1000th item.
The item – a lamp – was brought into the cafe’s December session by Julie Davies.
She posted on the cafe’s Facebook page: “Wasn’t expecting to have the 1000th item – very exciting. A big thank you to Anna who fixed my lamp with ease and chatted to me and my dad throughout. We really enjoyed the whole experience.”
The 999th item was a set of headphones, while other repairs on the day included a set of crystal lights. The session also attracted people who were making a return visit, having had items repaired before.
Judy Steele, part of the organising group, said: “We couldn’t have reached this milestone without our amazing volunteers, or without the SYDNI centre, which helped us set the cafe up and continues to support us. And having the SYDNI cafe open is the icing on the cake – sometimes literally.”
The next cafe will be on January 7 at the SYDNI centre from 11am to 2pm.
