After our successful Repair Cafe at Shirley Warren Working Together's "money saving" event we will return to our usual venue, Freemantle United Reformed Church hall, 257 Shirley Rd SO15 3HS on Sat 6th May. The Repair Cafe will be open from 10.30am-1pm, with all our usual repairers - electrical , jewellery, sewing, bikes etc. This event will be part of the 2017 Big Bike Revival (6 May -18 June), which should include not just bike repairs but also led rides, "try a bike" sessions and free cycle training. Details will be posted soon.
Future repair cafe dates at Freemantle URC: 6 May, 3 June, 1 July, 5 August.
Transition Southampton has been very busy of late, working with the Prosocial process, running Clean Air Southampton, Repair cafe and other projects and we don't always have time to update our webpages. Our Facebook page and group are good places to go to find more up to date information. If anyone out there would like to help with the web page and report on our local initiative please let us know. If you would like to recieve the monthly newsletter which will tell you about events and gatherings please sign up on the right.
Heard about Transition but not sure what its all about? Drop us a line and we can always meet up for a chat or perhaps you can come to one of our events. We look forward to seeing you
