STOP PRESS! We have decided to cancel the St Denys Bike Repairs session on Saturday 7th Nov. Bike Kitchen sessions in Shirley are also cancelled. We may be able to offer some sessions at St Denys after the lockdown ends, so check back here for details.
We have been awarded a grant from Cycling UK to run free bike doctor events where you can get your bike checked and minor repairs carried out by the Repair Cafe’s volunteer mechanics. These free sessions will run at St Denys Community Centre Please note that the sessions will be run outdoors near the bike stands. Social distancing will be in place and there will be no access to the building for customers. For more information please email us at repaircafe[at]transitionsouthampton.org . Booking is not necessary but you can register your attendance on our Facebook page, which will help us assess demand. Our Bike KItchen mechanics will also be running free bike doctors outside The Hub Cycleworks, Shirley Rd on See https://southamptonbikekitchen.wordpress.com/
Green Garden Consultancy
Our green garden consultancy program continues for those within walking distance of Portswood, provided social distancing is possible. Our retro-fit “rat proof composting” research also continues. If you have rats in the garden and are interested in trialling a rat-proof bin or compost sleeve or live within walking distance of Portswood and would like a wildlife garden consultation see our Garden and composting page.
