The Repair Café has been running alternate months for nearly two years now, and many well-loved items have been mended and returned to a useful life.
We thought it would be fun to tell you some of the things that we have repaired, or advised upon, so far:
Anglepoise lamps • Boot-scraper • CD players • Dehumidifier • Eiderdown relining • Fleece repair • Garden tools • Handbag zip • Irons • Jackets • Kitchen gadgets • Laptops • Mirror • Necklace • Over-heating laptop • Picture frame • Quite a lot of computers • Radios • Sewing machines • Tables • Unfunctioning lawnmowers • Vacuum cleaners • Wheelie suitcase • Xmas lights • Ye olde broken plate • Zips galore

20 July 9.30 – 12.30
21 September 9.30 – 12.30
16 November 9.30 – 12.30

WANT TO START A REPAIR CAFÉ IN YOUR TOWN?
It’s so rewarding to see items ready for re-use, rather than being thrown away. If you would like some help with start-up please get in touch. We’d love to help.
More volunteer repairers would be extremely welcome.
Contact June Emerson on email@example.com to find out how you can participate.
