You can bring the following to the Repair Cafe: electrical & electronic appliances, clothing, furniture, housewares, bicycles, toys, etc. Anything that’s broken (and you can carry) is welcome and has a good chance of getting repaired.
If you wish to make sure that a specialist repairer will be at hand on the day, please email us on: email@example.com
No, the Repair Cafe is only open at the advertised times.
No, you can visit the Repair Cafe without registering beforehand. The Repair Cafe is often very busy when we open at 10.30am, so we suggest you might like to visit at 11 or 11.30am.
No, the Repair Cafe is not a repair service, but a meeting place where volunteer repairers come together to mend broken items.
Advice and help from our volunteer repairers at the Repair Cafe is free of charge. However, voluntary donations are much appreciated! There is a donation bucket at the checkout table and it's possible to pay by card also.
No, the Repair Cafe is not intended as a place where people can get rid of old things. Any items that we are unable to repair must be removed from site by their owner.
The Repair Cafe does not have a large quantity of spare parts in stock. If repairs cannot be carried out with what is available, the visitor will usually be given advice on where to buy the material. It might be possible to mend the item later on in the morning, or if not, during the next Repair Cafe event.
We are dependent on our wonderful team of volunteers to make the Repair Cafe run. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer repairer, or helping as a welcomer, serving teas and coffees, setting up or clearing down, etc, please either email us on: firstname.lastname@example.org, or come along to one of the next events to see how the Repair Cafe works.
We really appreciate any financial support from our local community. Please see the donate page for more information on how to give.
