If you have items that need mending - clothes, jewellery, toys, tools, electrical and IT equipment including printers, small pieces of furniture etc - what do you do with them? Take them to the tip? Of course not - you bring them along to Royston's third Repair Cafe - a free event where you can learn how to mend your broken items.
It's simple - bring an item (we might be able to look at a second) that you think still has life in it. The item will be assessed and, if it can be mended there and then, you'll be shown how to do it! Note: this is a clinic not a hospital - if it needs more attention we'll refer you to a local repair business - we are not a replacement for the professionals.
It's free but we ask you to book a place in advance and to tell us a little about what you'll be bringing. This is to make sure we have a repairer available to assess your item. If there's a lot of interest in the event, we may have to allocate you a time slot to reduce queuing (although there will be tea, coffee, cake and chat so time will fly)
