Repair Café – Book your repair slot
Published on February 18th, 2020 | by Admin170
Eversden Repair Café returns on 14 March 2020 10am-1pm
How does a Repair Café work? If you have items that need mending bring them along to our Repair Café. A free event where you can learn a little about your broken item while a volunteer repairer assess it and, where possible, does a fix while you watch how it’s done! Note: if it needs a repair beyond our abilities we will refer you to a local repair business.
Items that can be repaired are: bikes, textiles, lampshades, clothes, all types of toys, small appliances, small electrical items including phones, furniture & other wooden items. We have a repairer that specialises in teddy bear repairs – if your antique or new teddy bear, or doll needs a mend bring it along.
Repairs are free but we ask you to book a place in advance and to tell us a little about what you’ll be bringing. Donations are welcome and will go towards the work to improve the village hall car park. You can book an item in via the online booking form here. This is to make sure we have a repairer available to assess your item and any parts that are needed for the repair. If there’s a lot of interest in the event, you may have to wait a bit.
Come early or stay for tea, coffee, delicious cake and a chat.
