Got an item you need fixed? Don't throw it away, or even pay for it to be repaired, come to one of our Repair Cafes and one of our talented team will repair your item for you!

Alternatively, if you have DIY or crafting skills we'd love to have you on board. Read below to find out more.

Are you a handy with a hammer, a sewing supremo, or a techie-tinkerer?

Vision 21 has teamed up with the Product Design students at University of Gloucestershire to create a free monthly repair event, called the Re-generation Café. It takes place on the first Saturday of every month in Cheltenham at St Andrew's Church Centre.

They want to hear from people who can repair small household items, serve refreshments or help out with the smooth running of the event. They would like to build up a reservoir of tradespeople or skilled 'amateurs' that are willing to give up a few hours of their time one Saturday a month to help repair all sorts of items.

Why not pop in and have a look!

Anyone interested in getting involved can contact Dave Entwistle from Vision 21 on 01242 228823 or email

Venue: St Andrew's Church Centre, Montpellier Street, Cheltenham, GL50 1SP
Date: First Saturday of the month
Time: 10am - 1pm (Last entry half an hour before closing time to allow for repairs)
