People who can do repairs - electricals, IT kit, clothes, furniture, toys...

Do you live on Alston Moor and are pretty good at fixing things?

We can even offer you free training in PAT testing - just the thing if you're keen to get into electrical repairs!  Get in touch now to find out more, call Roe Baker on 01768 210276 or email her at roe@cafs.org.uk.  You can also find out more on the website: https://www.cafs.org.uk/alston-moor-repair-cafe/
