On the last Wednesday of the month (except August), people in Cambridgeshire will be able to use Zoom to get their broken items seen by an experienced Cambridgeshire Repair Café repairer, without even leaving their home!
Over a lunchtime, you’ll be able to bring in electricals*, household and garden items, bicycles, toys, jewellery and clothing for 1:1 repair advice. There’ll be advice on software troubles too. Everything’s being done virtually using Zoom – once in the Cafe you’ll be in themed breakout rooms where you’ll meet your repairer.
To take part you’ll need a PC, tablet or
phone that can be used for video calls. The Cambs Virtual Repair Café is
free to visit and all aged 18 or over are welcome.
* We can only see battery powered electrical items at the virtual events, no mains powered appliances, sorry.
Booking a visit the Cambs Virtual Repair Café
You need to book your item in by midday on 28th July. All bookers
will receive an automatic confirmation email and then a second email
with the link to join the Virtual Repair Cafe will be emailed out the
day before the event. You can only book in one item, and you must be able to join at 12:30pm on the 29th July and wait to be seen.
Please note that we may need to cancel bookings if we feel that the item is not suitable for a Virtual Repair Cafe.
All face-to-face and Virtual Repair Cafes are listed on the Circular Cambridge events page.
