Horsham District Council Chairman, Cllr Peter Burgess, dropped into Horsham’s Repair Café in Worthing Road on Saurday (4 August).
The Repair Cafe, which was founded by local residents Jill Shuker and Carrie Cort, opens on the first Saturday of the month and offers repairs to a variety of items, including clothing, bags, computers electrical items and a whole host more.
Commenting on his visit, Cllr Burgess said: “The cafe was very busy and bustling with lots going on.
“Besides repairs, the café also offers refills of cleaning products and other items, which helps to reduce and re-use packaging. It was good to hear that they will soon be able to supply dry food goods.
“Additionally, advice is given on energy use and how to switch to more renewable energy sources.”
