9.30 - 12.30
Woodhouse Eaves Community Hall LE12 8RZ
At a repair cafe people come together to work on broken everyday items. Our throw away culture sees hundreds of items end up in landfill or incinerated when they could be mended and used for years to come. The ReStart movement is an international organisation who have encouraged communities to come together and share expertise and knowledge on how to fix 'stuff'.
Need a repair?
Do you have something that is destined for the tip - but if it could be repaired you would carry on using it? Bring it along to our next Repair Cafe.
Repairers will attempt to fix the item or advise you on how to fix it at home. But it is undertaken with the understanding that the item is broken and would otherwise be thrown away. Repairers reserve the right to refuse a repair. Items with a high voltage will not be allowed - eg microwaves.
Repair cafes aim to educate us all on how to fix items - or at least have a go before we throw it away. We ask that you remain with your item whilst it is being fixed. Chat to the repairer and find out what they are doing.
All repairs are completed free of charge. If you are able to give a donation, it will go towards the cost of the hall. The only items that are chargeable are watch batteries and any work B-buddies do after your free maintenance check.
TELL US WHAT YOU ARE BRINGING
Complete our repair form to let us know what you might be bringing.
This doesn't entitle you to jump the queue but it will help us to bring the right tools. We won't mind if you end up not coming along!
