Eversden Repair Café returns on 14 March 2020 10am-1pm
How does a Repair Café work? If you have items that need mending – bikes, electric bikes, clothes, textiles, jewellery, toys, small household appliances, small electrical items, furniture etc. 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.
It’s simple, bring an item that you think still has life in it. The item will be assessed and, if it can be mended there and then, you can 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, teddy bears, small appliances, small electrical items (no phones or tablets), furniture & other wooden items. We also have a repairer that specialises in teddy bear repairs – if you old 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 maintenance of the village hall. You can book an item in by calling Helen Tel. 07968779617 or via the online booking form which will be available in February. 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.
