LAST month, representatives from the Repair Cafe received the Community Spirit Award for their outstanding services to the local community.

The ceremony took place at Powys County Hall and was presented by the former mayor of Llandrindod, Jon Williams.

Well over 1,000 items have already been repaired and saved from the tip at the Repair Cafe by local volunteers who are handy at fixing things.

Martina Holmes, one of the cafe’s organisers, said: “The Repair Cafe is still going from strength to strength and we are very honoured to have been chosen for this prestigious award.

“Our friendly volunteers are are now looking forward to fixing the next 1,000 items, so please keep supporting us!”

Cllr Jon Williams said: “Keep doing what you do, it really makes a difference to the community.”
