At the “hospital for things”

Wenn es Krankenhäuser für Gegenstände gäbe, wäre das Goodlife Centre eine aparte Privatklinik – mit Alison Winfield-Chislett als resoluter und kompetenter Chefärztin.

Hands up if you’ve ever thrown away an object because it was easier (and, we think, cheaper) to go out and buy a replacement. But what if you could re-learn the lost skills of make-do-and-mend – solving a problem, saving money and the planet at the same time? The Repair Café in London at the Goodlife Centre teaches just that – here’s how I fared when I came to fix a broken vacuum. Like all smart features, this is available in English and German.
