If you have items that need mending – bikes, 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 the Royston Repair Cafe – a free event where you can learn how to mend your broken items.
This session we’re having a special focus on getting ready for summer. So look in your sheds and garages for items that need a little TLC – lawnmowers, deckchairs, shears and sun umbrellas.
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, we’ll show you how it’s done! 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, biscuits and chat so time will fly). You can reserve a space by going to the eventbrite booking page.
