The Repair Café idea is really simple – people who have stuff that needs to be fixed get together with people who can help them fix it - and you get to pick up some simple repair skills at the same time! We don't guarantee that we'll be able to fix your item but we'll do our best.
Do you have something that needs repairing? Please send details of your broken item beforehand if possible and we'll get back to you with the best time to bring it in. We'll do our best to fit you in if you don't book in advance, but we will probably have to ask you to wait for a repairer to be free. Book a repair at Eddington Toy Repair Cafe here.
We're always keen to involve more repairers, so please get in touch if you'd like to lend a hand at future events! Let us know what sorts of things you can repair, and we’ll be in touch.
Tea and cake available of course!
We always need lots of help! Here are some specific things we're looking for help with, but if you could just help out generally with whatever needs doing, that will also be appreciated - please Let us know if you'd like to help out.
Repair Cafés in Cambridge City are organised by Cambridgeshire Repair Café network (aka Cambridge Skillshare and Repair) a partnership between Transition Cambridge and Cambridge Carbon Footprint, and supported by Drapers Tools and Mackays. We continue to support groups in Cambridgeshire villages who run their own Repair Cafes, and run occasional training sessions for new groups in Cambridgeshire who would like to set one up locally.
The Repair Café movement is growing rapidly, and is all about people helping each other out, learning how to fix things which are fixable, and keeping stuff out of landfill.
