Cambs Virtual Repair Cafe No7

On the last Wednesday of the month people in Cambridgeshire will be able to use Zoom to get their broken items seen by an experienced Cambridgeshire Repair Café repairer, without even leaving their home 

Over a lunchtime, you’ll be able to bring in electricals*, household and garden items, bicycles, toys, jewellery and clothing for 1:1 repair advice. There’ll be advice on software troubles too. Everything’s being done virtually using Zoom – once in the Cafe you’ll be in themed breakout rooms where you’ll meet your repairer. 

To take part you’ll need a PC, tablet or phone that can be used for video calls. The Cambs Virtual Repair Café is free to visit and all aged 18 or over are welcome.   

* We can only see battery powered electrical items at the virtual events, no mains powered appliances, sorry.

Booking a visit the Cambs Virtual Repair Café  

You need to book your item in by midday on 29th Sept. All bookers will receive an automatic confirmation email and then a second email with the link to join the Virtual Repair Cafe will be emailed out the day before the event. You can only book in one item, and you must be able to join at 12:30pm on the 30th Sept and wait to be seen.

Please note that we may need to cancel bookings if we feel that the item is not suitable for a Virtual Repair Cafe.

All face-to-face and Virtual Repair Cafes are listed on the Circular Cambridge events page.

Agreement and Disclaimer 

Please read the following and tick the box at the bottom to let us know that you agree with, and will abide by each point.

1. I bring items for repair advice at my own risk. 
All repair advice is free of charge and carried out by unpaid volunteers. Neither the organisers of the Repair Café nor the repairers can be held responsible if the item can’t be repaired, the repair doesn’t last, or the item is accidentally damaged in the course of the attempted repair.  

2. Repairers may choose not to attempt to help you repair your item. 
This could be for safety or any other reason. Sometimes a professional repair service is needed. If we can, we’ll suggest a local provider.  

3. Repairers may help you to take your item apart and then decide it shouldn’t be put back together again.
 For example if the item is unsafe or broken beyond repair.  

I agree to the terms in the above disclaimer.
