We've held three 'Imagine Southampton' events now and had some amazing input from people at these meetings, putting their hearts and energy into imagining Southampton. New projects are in the process of being born as a result of these events - we'll keep you posted as the progress. You can read a blog about the first Imagine Southampton event here.
Southampton Repair Cafe is open on the first Saturday of every month (except January), from 10.30am-1.00pm at Freemantle United Reformed Church Hall, 257 Shirley Rd.
Repair cafe aims to keep everyday items away from landfill, save resources, give people the opportunity to learn new skills and build community.
We are part of a network of people in Southampton who want to talk about global and local environmental change and respond through postive action. We want to see Southampton as a low carbon, healthy city which plays it part in global justice and the future of planet earth.
