Heston Repair Cafe

Repair Cafe based in Heston, Hounslow, London

The Repair Cafés run between 11am and 1.30pm, on the last Saturday of every month at the Heston Community Centre. Come along with your bike, small electrical, laptop or item of clothing that you want mended, and we’ll help you fix it for FREE.

The Heston Repair Cafe is a FREE event that is a part of the Heston in the Loop initiative from the London Borough of Hounslow that will help the local community to save money by having your precious items being repaired, learning new skills and reducing waste.

These repair workshops are staffed by experts in key categories (see below) who will be able to diagnose the problem and then guide you through the repair process. These experts will make sure that the item is fully repaired (if possible) and make sure that the item is safe to reuse.

For this event, we will be repairing the following categories,

- Small Appliances (kettles, toasters, radios, etc.)

- Bicycles & Scooters (NOT e-bikes or e-scooters)

- Clothing or textile items

- Laptops/PCs & Console Devices

Heston Repair Cafe is held on the last Saturday of every month (check below for details of the next Repair Cafe) at

Heston Community Centre,

343 Vicarage Farm Road,

Hounslow,

TW5 0EE

Coffees, teas and refreshments will be available in the café area.
