Cottenham Repair Café at the Fen Edge Festival

If you have something that’s broken, or needs adjusting or sharpening, why not bring it along to the Repair Café at the Fen Edge Festival? We repair all kinds of things – from bikes to toasters to baby buggies, radios, computers, printers, ornaments,clothes – almost anything you can carry, in fact! We like to show you how we do it, so that if it happens again, you can do it yourself. Both repairers and repairees have a very enjoyable and rewarding time.

Cottenham’s Repair Cafés have been running for five years, and are now established as the village’s favourite way to get everyday items fixed. They normally run at the Community Centre at the corner of the High Street, but this one will be at the Village College during the 2019 Fen Edge Festival, on Saturday between 10am and 2pm.

If you’re a whiz at repairing things, and can spare a few hours on the Saturday, come along as a repairer – show what you can do, and learn new repair techniques from other repairers. We have a very comprehensive toolkit and supply of consumables, donated by Draper Tools and Mackays of Cambridge, so you don’t even need to bring your own tools, unless you want to!

Booking is recommended, but not essential. If you can let us know ahead of time what you plan to bring, and what the problem is, it will increase the chances of us having the correct tools and spares. Book here to let us know you’re coming, and then please send an email to telling us what you’re planning to bring for repair (or if you’re a repairer, the kinds of things you’re good at fixing).

We look forward to seeing you there.
