Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity.

Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items such as furniture, clothing, battery-operated appliances, books and bikes and learn how to fix them with the help of experienced, volunteer repairers. You can also bring along small, blunt garden tools like secateurs and we’ll show you how to sharpen them.

As a special once-off feature we’ll also offer basic fishing rod repairs, including rods that have snapped in half (we’ll re-set and shorten) or have broken or missing eyelets. We can’t repair reels but can show you how to clean and maintain.

Because it’s the advent of winter and you might have discovered some unwanted holes in your beloved jumpers, we’re also offering a darning service.

Maximum three items per person per session.

Note we will NOT be offering jewellery repairs or soldering this month.

Repair Cafes are a great way to save money, bypass landfill, extend the life of belongings and learn the art of repair.

Toss it? No way. You can repair it at the Repair Café – we are open the first Saturday of each month (except January). Please note we are not a pick up and drop-off repair service – we want visitors to get involved and learn from the repair process.

No need to register, just come along with your broken item and we’ll do our best. And if you have a guitar that needs some TLC, get in touch and we’ll put you on our waiting list – because from time to time we’ll have a guitar repairer on hand too.
