The Forest Row Repair Café
We aim to help reduce waste by encouraging a repair culture in our community. A repair can save time, money and waste.
Let our team of volunteer repairers work their magic on your household items with anything from your toaster, watch or teddy bear while you enjoy a piece of homemade cake and a cuppa while you pick up a tip or two on your broken item.
So join us for the next Repair Café at the Forest Row Community Centre 10-1pm - last orders taken at 12:30.
Annual Exhibition

Wealden District Council has won the ‘Up and Coming LPA Award’ in the 2022 NatureSpace Annual Awards for the great crested newt District Licensing Scheme.
Being one of only
three winners out of 50
participating English local
planning authorities, the
award is in recognition of
the enthusiastic adoption
of the District Licensing
Scheme by Wealden
council, which joined the
scheme in October 2021. The scheme has successfully been embedded into the council’s planning practices and seen a smooth roll out. It is already contributing significantly to the landscape-scale conservation freshwater biodiversity in the Wealden district.
Great crested newts are dependent upon ponds to breed although they actually spend most of their
life on land in places such as woodland, hedgerows, rough grassland and scrub. They are generally found within 500m of ponds, although they can travel much further than this – up to 1.6km.
Great crested newts and their habitats are legally protected in the UK and planning authorities must consider the species as part of the planning process while developers must be careful not to break the law. Where impacts may arise, developers should obtain
a licence to make the activities lawful which is usually additional to the planning process.
