We're looking for

1) Donation of some home baking – cake, scones etc.

2) Donation of a small item to make up hamper prizes for the raffle – they should be ‘posh nosh’, chocolate, or small bottle of alcohol/similar

3) Can you spare 1 or 2 hours clearing tables/helping with the washing up?

4) Can you nominate a local charity? We plan to give 10% of our profit to the most popular charity, so get your nomination in now.

Can you help with any of these? If so, contact

Portobello’s first Repair Café will feature 10 of our talented members who will help to repair bicycles, small electricals, clothing, soft furnishings, jewellery and furniture; sharpen tools; and advise on problems with photography or setting up social media. All repairs are free, but there may be a small charge for parts.

Coffee/tea and homebaked cakes will be available to purchase while you wait, and there will be an activity table for toddlers, so pass the word amongst your friends and neighbours.

We're delighted to invite Anna Raymond from Edinburgh Tool Library to talk to us. Anna is ETL's newest recruit and will be managing the expansion of their services across the North of Edinburgh, including Portobello.

Her background is originally in architecture, and she believes passionately that everyone should have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and make something for themselves, regardless of their situation, skill or self-confidence. Her talk will be geared towards the sharing economy, and ETL’s role in making this viable.

There will be plenty time for questions after the talk.
