Repair Cafés – happening near Hatley

Mend it... don't ditch it!


Repair Cafés – pop-along events where you can get household things fixed.

You may have heard of Repair Cafés – pop-along events where you can get household things fixed.

Brilliant scheme – but you usually need to book a slot rather than just turn up on the day, partly to even out the flow of visitors and partly to match repairer expertise with items being brought in.

Our local organisers, Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network, say “Repair Cafés are community events which match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things.

“Our experienced, volunteer repairers can repair all sorts of household items – kettles, toasters, lamps, laptops, clothes, toys and bikes etc.

“All repairs are free, although we welcome donations to support our growing network.”
