Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Got something that’s broken? Want to try fixing it but not sure how?

Repair Café Edinburgh will be at ​Bridgend Farmhouse, a unique community centre, cafe and events space in South Edinburgh, alongside their monthly market for an day of mending and repair! 

Our Repair Cafés are free pop-up community events where you can bring your item and volunteer fixers will guide you through your repair.

Our volunteers will be on hand to help you to repair your broken electrical, electronic and mechanical devices such as toys, small / low-voltage electricals, laptops, clothing and fabrics… we’ll also have experts to help with bicycles.

Not everything’s fixable at our events – we’re limited by time, spare parts, safety, capacity – to avoid disappointment we encourage you to contact us beforehand.

So if you’ve got something that you want to fix, you can email us at [email protected] to confirm suitability and to reserve your place. Or just turn up on the day and we’ll try to take a look.

Please note: At busy times you might need to wait for a volunteer to become available. Priority will be given to local residents and those with reserved places.

Last repairs will be accepted at 1.30pm to allow time to finish up.  To make our events fair to everyone, we ask that you only bring one item for repair.

Location: Bridgend Farmhouse, 41 Old Dalkeith Road, EH16 4TE

Bridgend Farmhouse’s monthly market includes crafts; tools; home made jams and chutneys. Their cafe is open for tea, coffee, cake and lunch menu – with ingredients grown from their allotments.

We encourage you to use Public transport or active travel means; the venue has extremely limited parking and is a 5 minute walk from the Cameron Toll shopping centre.
