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
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.
