Description

Cottenham’s 12th Repair Cafe is happening on 24th Feb 2018.  You can just turn up with something, and we’ll do what we can.

There’s no need to book, but if you can let us know ahead of time what you’re planning to bring, and what’s the matter with it, it will increase the chances of us having the right tools and spares.  Just send an email to cottenham@repaircafe.org.uk.

You can also book a ticket at bit.ly/CottenhamRC12, but there is no requirement to do this.

If you have any questions, call or leave a message at 01954 253903.

Cambridge Area Repair Cafes

Repair Cafes are distinct from Restart Parties, but there is considerable overlap, and much to be gained from sharing information.  They are co-ordinated from the Netherlands (http://repaircafe.org), and are not in competition with Restart Parties (there's more than enough to fix for us both!)

Repair Cafes tend to be less hi-tech than Restart Parties, though we will tackle computers, laptops, tablets and phones when requested.  Repairs are always free, and a cafe (which charges modest prices) is associated with the event, to cater for those who are waiting to be seen.

The Cambridge Repair Cafe Group co-ordinates Repair Cafes in the Cambridge area.  There is a link to the group at http://www.repaircafe.org.uk.  Currently active at least once a quarter are:

Abington
Chesterton
Cottenham
Fulbourn
Girton
Shelford
Waterbeach

New Repair Cafes are expected shortly in Haddenham and Linton, and we have done one-off events in Cambridge and Ely.

We are aiming to set the record for the largest Repair Cafe in the world in Cambridge on 11th November 2017.
