Join our growing team of Restarter Fixer volunteers or head along with any items which are requiring a repair, an update or an upgrade.

If you have any items you plan to bring along it can be useful to know in advance the make and model numbers of what you have and we can do some homework - drop us a note via email.

In addition to electronics we have repaired and serviced BMX bikes for a local Out Of School Club and would welcome anyone interested in assisting with clothing, textiles or tool repair too.

If you have any items you no longer require and want to come along and swap or pass them on please pay us a visit.

Tea, coffee and cakes are welcome too.

About the group

Newlands Restarters

As of January 2020 we are a 'Group' of four 'Fixers' who have established a regular monthly Restart Party hosted by Newlands Community Development Trust here at Newlands Activity Centre, Romanno Bridge in the Scottish Borders.

During 2020 we aim to expand our team of volunteer Fixers and work with James at the Restart network to expand our service.
