Description

Join
us at our third Repair Café! We’re linking in with a number of repair
cafés taking place on the same day as part of an attempt to repair a
record number of items on one day! So it’s your chance to help smash the
record!!

If
you have any electricals, jewellery, ceramics, furniture items (as long
as you can carry them in), bikes, clothing, other fabric items, or any
other treasured bits and pieces that need mending (email us to ask) or
knives/gardening tools to sharpen, book in and bring ’em along. Ideally,
register in advance by emailing [email protected]. Tea, coffee & cake available while you wait for your repair to be done.

Oundle Repair Cafe

We have used the european Repair Cafe logo and starter pack and have now held two very successful Repair Cafes in Oundle - our next is planned for the 15th Feb.

I recently visited the Market HArborough Fixers who told me about this website and I am keen to share with and learn from others.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • 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.

DON’T

  • 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.
