Repair Café Harbury

Repair Cafes are helping to change attitudes by presenting an innovative approach to waste reduction, social cohesion and the transference of craft skills, through the act of repairing, upgrading and maintaining a broad range of products.

They are a community-led initiative offering a friendly and social meeting place, open to all, where hand-portable broken, damaged or torn household and personal possessions are repaired or mended by a team of multi-skilled repairers.

Repair Cafe Harbury takes place from 2.00 to 4.00pm, on the fourth Saturday of the month, in Harbury Village Library. Our volunteer repairers can offer help with woodworking, mechanical, electrical, textiles, bicycle repair and servicing, and tool and knife sharpening. There’s tea, coffee and biscuits as well.

Harbury Future Energy

Harbury Energy Initiative is a village volunteer-run group that aims to save energy, to reduce household costs and to cut carbon within our community.

Much of our work to date has focused on our community buildings but we have also helped with reducing the cost of installation of photovoltaic panels on many roofs and have stimulated a number of households to insulate their walls and carry out other improvements to cut carbon. There is still much to do.
