Be a repairer

Do you have a skill for fixing things? 

Could you volunteer some time at our Repair Cafe?

We are looking for volunteers who can fix electronics, watches, jewellery, clothes, textiles, knitting/crochet ...the list goes on and on!  The Cafe will be opening at 10 am and the last item will be taken in at 3 pm.  You can volunteer all day or just for a few hours.  You will need to bring your own tools.

The 'customer' sits alongside the repairer to work collaboratively on the fix.  Perhaps in the future it is something they could do themselves.  Or it might just give them confidence to have a go at repairing something instead of immediately throwing it away.  If a part is needed, you could recommend what they need to buy and how to install it. 

The repairer has the right to refuse to repair an item and the customer will sign a form declaring that they understand their item is already broken.  We will not accept items of high voltage eg microwaves and power tools. 

Do you know how to PAT test?  We would welcome your support at the fair.
