Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


Our band of volunteer repairers can help fix all kinds of things - from bikes to clothing to earrings, radios, printers, ornaments - 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 several years, and are now established as the village's favourite way to get everyday items fixed, while enjoying a coffee or cake at Cottenham Community Centre.

Before we go on, please take a look at our Repair Café agreement that sets out what you can expect from us, and what we expect from you at the Repair Cafe: (You may need to copy and paste the link into your browser's address bar). We'll have a paper copy ready for you to sign when you arrive.

Please book either a morning (10-12) or afternoon (12-2) ticket, choosing the ticket description that fits your item best, and we will contact you with a more precise time slot. Let us know as much as you can about the item and what the problem is, as this will help us match you to a repairer with the right skills and ensure we bring the correct tools and spares. You don't need to print the ticket or bring it with you to the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
