A repair cafe has just been opened in Woodbridge with a view to reducing items going to landfill by repairing them.
Hosted by ecological action group Transition Woodbridge, in collaboration with St John's Church and funded by the Woodbridge Lions, the venture was officially opened by Woodbridge mayor Eamonn O'Nolan on Monday.
Mr O'Nolan said: "Today saw the very successful opening of Woodbridge's first repair cafe.
"As we all grow in awareness about saving precious resources and doing what we can to curb waste and slow climate change, the people of Woodbridge are doing their bit."
The church's already well established Hub Cafe, is now also home to the repair cafe where volunteers tinkered, sewed and soldered broken items where happy owners left clutching fixed kettles, bags, toasters and CD players.

The cafe will be open on the first Monday of every month from September 2 at St John's Church on St John's Hill, Woodbridge.
