The next Cambourne Repair Cafe will occur on Saturday, July 16 between 11am and 2pm at the Hub Community Centre. The first Repair Cafe was held in December 2019 and has been delayed by the pandemic. We are delighted to be back!
Details of how to book an item for repair at the cafe will shortly be published here.
A reminder of the 2019 event can be viewed here.
Can you volunteer as a repairer?
Cambourne Repair Cafe is looking for volunteer repairers to help out on July 16 and at future Repair Cafe’s. We are looking for people with the relevant skills and experience to be comfortable attempting to repair electrical, electronic, and mechanical items (e.g. clocks, toasters, blenders, kettles, lamps, coffee machines, headphones and toys), bicycles, clothing (sewing) and potentially computers and furniture. The events are run by volunteers and usually last for 3 hours, with up to 4 items per repairer and free cakes and drinks on offer. Repair Cafe’s are non-commercial and there are no guarantees that an item can be repaired. The basic principle is to match people who have broken items with people who like fixing things!
Cambourne is part of a growing Cambridgeshire Repair Cafe Network. More details are available here.
If you are interested in volunteering as a repairer, or just helping out with the organisation and running of future events, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
