    Organisation: Eden Arts
    Venue: Eden Arts, The Old Fire Station, Bridge Lane, Penrith CA11 8HY
    The Repair Café is a neighbourhood initiative that promotes repair as an alternative to throwing things out. Residents of Penrith and the surrounding area can bring their broken items to the Engine Bay to fix them on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers. Repair Café Penrith Old Fire Station could use more volunteers in the area. If you are handy with a screwdriver, a spanner, a sewing machine, or anything else and want to share your skills then get in touch with Eden Arts.
