Cottenham Community Centre

Hosted by Cambridge Area Repair Cafes

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

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

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

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts


  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are there to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Please back up your data before the event.
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads and adaptors.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.


  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. However we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
