Rampton Repair Cafe

Rampton Repair Cafe

Sat 13 Jul 2024, 11:00am – 2:00pm

Sustainable Rampton is delighted to be running our first Repair Café at Rampton Village Hall on Saturday 13 July.

Types of items – our team of experienced volunteer repairers can help with sewing repairs, repairs on small household appliances, electrical items, computers, sewing machines, bikes, mechanical items and much more. While we cannot promise to fix everything our repairers will do their very best.

Bookings are now closed except for clothing/textile repairs *

However, we should be able to accept drop-ins on the day if other repairs go quickly or repairs that have been booked don’t show up.

* If you have an item of clothing or a textile item in need of repair please email theramptonrepaircafe@gmail.com providing the following details:

  1. Item description, colour and the problem that needs addressing e.g. a rip/tear;
  2. Preferred time slot: 11:00am; 12 noon; 13:00pm – we will do our best to accommodate you.

Drop in appointments – you can also turn up on the day to see if someone can help and we’ll do our best to slot you in around the booked repairs – but we can’t guarantee someone will be available and you may need to wait. While you’re waiting you will be able to sample our delicious cakes and enjoy chatting to our fantastic band of volunteer helpers and other visitors.

Repairs are free but we welcome donations which help cover the cost of any spares used in the repair, our insurance, hall hire and also pays for refreshments for the repairers.

Transport links – unfortunately there is no public transport to the village on Saturdays. However, there is a well used pedestrian/cycle path connecting Cottenham and Rampton. The village hall has a good sized car park with a designated disabled space and a rack for bikes.

Access arrangements Rampton Village Hall has level access throughout.

Refreshments – hot and cold drinks together with delicious cakes will be available to buy. Please note this is a cash only event.

This event is run in partnership with Cambridge Carbon Footprint and insured by Wessex Insurance.
