The third Repair Cafe was held on Saturday 16 March at the Malvern Cube and was the most successful to date! A total of 60 visitors registered and the team of repairers successfully fixed almost 70 broken or damaged items. These ranged from walking sticks to a crystal candlestick to a DVD player. Tool and knife sharpening were also very popular.
Many thanks to our team of committed and loyal repairers and to members of the general public who are continuing to support the Malvern Hills Repair Cafe.

Transition Malvern Hills and Malvern Hills Repair Café are working together to organise the first Green fair in Malvern – the Malvern Hills Communities Fair!
The aim of this one day event is to raise awareness of and celebrate local environmental initiatives, particularly the efforts of those individuals, voluntary groups and businesses who are contributing to the sustainability of the Malvern Hills communities.
Malvern Hills Communities Fair will take place on Saturday 21 September 2013 at Malvern Cube. There will be themed areas based on different environmental issues such as waste, energy, transport and food and a variety of different workshops, presentations, children’s activities and entertainment will take place throughout the day. Stalls will be available for a small charge.
We would welcome more volunteers to join us on the organising committee as we want to ensure that this will be an event that Malvern will remember!
