Repair Cafe and clothes swap at the Rugby Club, Great Shelford

Repair Cafe and clothes swap at the Rugby Club, Great Shelford

Sat 15 Jul 2023, 2:00pm – 4:30pm

This event will include the Repair Café and also a SWISH clothes swap.

For the Repair Café, bring along your broken item and a skilled volunteer will help you fix it!  We can tackle a wide variety of repairs including jewellery, clothes and fabrics, electrical and electronic devices, sewing machines and other items.  Please note that we will not be able to replace cracked screens on phones or tablets. The repairers are brilliant and can fix a lot of things but there are no guarantees.

(If you have a bicycle which needs attention, you can bring it to one of the weekly Dr Bike workshops held each Tuesday afternoon from 3pm – 6pm at the Old Slaughterhouse on Church Street in Stapleford).

Please book your item in from Friday 23rd June until Sunday 9th July, via the following link:

Booking Form – Great Shelford Rugby Club Repair Café

Booking is highly recommended to avoid a long wait on the day and to make things fair we politely request only one item per person.  We ask all repairees to read and sign our repair agreement as we are all volunteers.

E-waste: You can also bring along small electrical items like kettles or cables that are obsolete or beyond repair and recycle them in our e-waste bin. No smoke alarms, vapes, light bulbs, batteries (except those which cannot be removed) or non-electricals please.


The idea of the clothes swap is to bring unwanted clothes in good condition, which are then all put on display. The SWISH then opens, and people can browse the display and hopefully find something new (to them) that they can take away.   We’ll accept donations from 2:15pm and the SWISH will open at 3pm.   If you have clothes to donate in advance, contact us on the email address below.

It’s a free event but donations are very welcome. Tea and cake will be available of course!

If you have any questions, please email

Organised by 2G3S (Green Groups in Shelford, Stapleford and Sawston).
