Steve Cousens, who helps to run the voluntary team, said: “We are dedicated to helping people repair household items and save waste and CO2.

“We are coming back very strongly in Market Harborough after the coronavirus lockdown and we are more fired up than ever.”

He added: “Our workshops always go down a storm here.
