Repair Cafe Harbury

Repair Cafe Harbury takes place on the 4th Saturday every month from 2 pm to 4 pm at a location in the centre of the village. We offer a full range of repair skills and encourage people to participate in repairs We provide a sharpening service for knives and tools, and have recently started to accept unwanted bicycles which we repair and make roadworthy and then offer to people in our community for a donation sufficient to cover any repair costs. In the past we have worked with our local Warwickshire Police Safe Neighbourhoods Team to offer free Bike Marking. This event was timed to coincide with Bikeability week at the local Primary School.

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 here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • 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. But 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.
