Street Mendathon

Think street party but everyone is repairing something!

We are taking our next Repair Café out into the streets of Hanover (Brighton) on the 2nd June from 1-5pm.

We’re encouraging Hanover residents to take their tables & chairs outside their houses and to do those repair jobs that have been put off for another time. It will be a chance to meet neighbours and share repair tips and tools (perhaps even some tea, cake or a bottle).

People who don’t live in Hanover are also welcome to join in.

The Brighton Repair Café will be set up on Jersey Street with textiles, electrical & jewellery repair and perhaps furniture.

SpacePlace will have their Radical Repairers out in Washington street with sewing machines, bike repairs, crochet and darning experts and The Lost Mitten Project.

Anyone who repairs something at the Street Mendathon please take a photo and send it to us via weareonthemend@gmail.com and we’ll post them up here and tot up the total number of repairs!
