What do you do with a chair when the leg has come loose? With a toaster that no longer works? Or a woollen jumper with moth holes? Toss it? No way!
You can repair it at the Repair Café!
Volunteers with expertise and skills to share offer free help with repairing faulty or broken appliances [eg CD player, toaster, phone], toys or bikes, clothing or textile repairs, or help with getting to know how tools or appliances work such as a new phone or sewing machine. They see themselves as neighbours helping neighbours as well as saving money and reducing waste. It’s also somewhere where people can just drop in and have a chat. Coffee and cake on sale
We meet between 10:30 and 13:00 on:
# third Saturday of the month at St Paul’s Learning Centre BS2 8XJ
‘Last orders’ for repairs at 12.30, please.
We recommend you turn up when the cafe starts to have the best chance of having your item fixed. Also please bring any accessories that are needed for the item to work so we can check them also (e.g. Charger for a laptop)
