Pop-up repair hub to launch in Gloucester

Around 22 million items of fixable furniture, 11,000 busted bikes and 28 million trashed toys are thrown away in the UK each year.

To help provide local people with information about repairs, a pop-up repair hub will be opening in King's Walk Shopping Centre in Gloucester, from Wednesday September 27 to Sunday October 1, from 10am to 6pm each day.

The repair hub will be run by environmental charity, Hubbub, and will also offer the chance to have a go at repairing your own items, with the help of skilled volunteers from across the county.

The repair campaign will focus on easy repairs and how to get more involved with repairs in the county, including:

• Free bike maintenance sessions for residents

• Giving advice and trying out small repairs at the hub

• Sharing tips and tricks on social media

Cllr David Gray, cabinet member for environment and planning, said: "There are so many ways to repair items in Gloucestershire, through our excellent network of repair cafes, all the local businesses that provide repairs and now through finding out more at our pop-up hub.

"I would encourage people to visit the pop-up hub when it opens later this month to get some tips on making repairs. It's a great way to save money and reduce waste, which will help the environment and create a greener Gloucestershire."
