Description

This is a heads-up holding page in preparation for the full details of the next Eddington Repair Café on Sunday 11th October 2020, 11am to 2pm. Keep an eye out on the Circular Cambridge website for further information and how to book.

This Repair Café is being organised by ‘A Toy’s Life and Beyond’ in partnership with the Cambridgeshire Repair Café Network and although it will be focussing on toys, it is open to all.

Repairers will look at all sorts of toys from indoor to outdoor, soft and electrical, modern and old alongside a variety of other items. You can drop in on the day but may not be seen – best to book your item in by emailing: [email protected] letting us know what the item is and the problem with it.

All welcome – a free event but donations are very welcome.

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 (https://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 https://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.
