Penarth Library’ is the venue for two of the new groups

Three new free community groups have been setup in Penarth to help people develop knitting skills, to help them solve jigsaws and to help them repair things that don’t work properly.

Two of the groups – knitting and jigsaws – meet at Penarth Library:-

  • The Knit2gether Group  – which began this week –  meets every Wednesday at 14.30 at the library – although participants are advised that they do need to have some previous experience of knitting.
  • No previous experience is required however for the Jigsaw Group which – as from this week – meets at the library at 14:00 and will help solve the apparently most insoluble of puzzles. More information on both clubs is available by calling 0292020 708438

The “Repair Cafe” is being held at St Augustine’s Parish Hal;l on Sunday October 28th between 14:00 and 17:00

Meanwhile on October 28th Penarth’s first free “Repair Cafe “is being opened at St Augustine’s Parish Hall . This is being run by Repair Cafes Wales which has now set up a group in Penarth – comprising groups of volunteer “fixers” who will meet monthly from now on.

The Repair Cafe experts will try their hands at anything from sorting out small electrical gadgets that have gone wrong, computers that don’t work,  to fixing up  wooden furniture, making running repairs to clothing and putting faulty bikes back on the road….and it’s a free service.

    Repair small electrical items.
    My iPhoneX has a small screen crack, do you think they’ll fix it?

      It’s not a free service for cheapskates, the aim is to conserve and enable people. If, on the other hand, you are good at something, volunteers are always welcome.

      • Jp says:

        Quite so. Please don’t put any local businesses out of business though, quite a few already do this sort of thing for their clients.

      Perhaps you should take your keyboard for repair as it’s constantly typing cr*p
