Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands


Blairgowrie & Rattray Repair Café hold a monthly event at Nest on the last Saturday of the month from 10.30 to 12.30, where you can bring small personal and household items in need of repair, such as small electrical appliances, toys, jewellery, clothes etc.

On arrival a member of the Repair Cafe will chat with you about your repair and complete a registration form for your item. If it can’t be looked at on the day they will arrange for it to be looked at by one of the repair volunteers to see if it can be repaired.

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.
