The Marlow Repair Café is an opportunity for people to learn how to fix their own items, rather than throwing them away. This can range from electronics to furniture, or from jewellery to bikes. The Repair Café Foundation website has more details on what it is and the history of the movement.
It is organised bi-monthly alongside the Marlow Market, in the All Saints Church Hall, from 10 am until 1 pm, with a “special edition” at a guest location in January.
