What is Repair Café?

A monthly pop up social event where you can repair your things with the help of our friendly volunteers and enjoy a cuppa, cake and natter.

This is a free event where you are encouraged to bring in your broken appliance, stuck zip, rusty tools, old bicycle, holey jumper – whatever you can imagine – and work with our volunteers to make the necessary repairs to keep it running. Come and join us to learn how to repair and mend, save money and be part of a community sharing crafts, knowledge and creative skills.
