Cambourne Repair Cafe

Cambourne Repair Cafe

Sat 16 Jul 2022, 11:00am – 2:00pm

Cambourne will host its second Repair Café on Saturday, July 16 between 11am-2pm at the Hub Community Centre, Hight Street, Cambourne, CB23 6GW.

Repair Cafes are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things.

This is a free event to which you can bring along your broken item. Our volunteer repairers will assess and then attempt to repair the item. If repair is not possible then they may be able to offer advice on where you can take the item for further assessment. There are no promises and no guarantees, but if something can be saved the repairers will give it their best efforts.

One key principle of a Repair Café is that you sit with the repairer whilst they attempt the repair. You can learn more about your broken item and the repair process.

Free tea, coffee and cake will be served!

We welcome the following items for repair:

  • Electrical and mechanical items such as clocks, sewing machines, toasters, blenders, kettles, lamps, CD players, coffee machines, headphones
  • Sewing repair (clothing, bags, textiles)
  • Toys
  • Bicycles
  • Sharpening (e.g. garden tools, kitchen scissors)
  • Pottery gluing (must be in chunks, not smithereens)

We cannot accept large appliances, microwaves, televisions, computer equipment and mobile phones.

Please book your item in via the online form here and provide as much detail as possible about the fault. Items will be allocated to a repairer and you will receive a time slot to bring your item to the Café.

You can turn up on the day, but bookings will take priority and you may have to wait or there may not be a time to have your item seen by a repairer. We politely request only one item per person, but if we have time and you can wait as necessary then we may be able to have a second item seen by a repairer.

Book now

We look forward to seeing you!
