Description

Our Fixers are back to help you repair your household items. Learn how to sew, solder and diagnose problems with a variety of items- clothes, toys, bikes and electricals.

Not got an item to fix? We also love to help build confidence in repair skills!

 How does it work? 

1. Arrive any time between 10 am and 3pm. The day is ‘drop in’. You may have to wait to be helped, but there are refreshments available to purchase while you wait. Bring all power adaptors and any sundries you may need to conduct the repair (e.g. new zips etc).

2. Stay with your item and your Fixer volunteer will show you how to fix your item! There is no guarantee your item will be fixed, and if it will take a long time, we will show you how to finish it at home.

3. Your repair is free. Donations are welcome to help cover our costs, e.g. insurance and room hire. You can pay cash in donation jars on the day to say ‘thank you’ to your Fixer, or drop some cash here: paypal.me/bedfordrepair
