Fixing Club at 228

6:30pm – 9pm third Thursday of the month

Do you like fixing electrical stuff?

Do you think you might like fixing electrical stuff?

Come to Forest Fixers’ Repair Club, spend the evening fixing with others and share your skills. If you don’t have your own stuff to fix, we can find something for you. You can bring your own tools and/or you can use ours.

This is different from a repair cafe where people turn up with their broken stuff to be fixed. This is for people who want to learn to fix or for people who can fix already and want to share their skills with others.

Repair Club is FREE but you are expected to volunteer for at least two repair cafes a year as a fixer, a host or a data inputter.

Just turn up or contact [email protected] for further details.

Forest Fixers

We're just starting out and had our first repair cafe last month. We're having another one on 22nd April and would welcome any fixers who would like to join us.

We are currently holding events wherever we can find a venue but we will soon be based at:

The Mill

7-11 Coppermill Lane

London E17 7HA

The nearest station is St James Street (Liverpool Street to Chingford Line), which is just round the corner from The Mill

or a 12 minute walk from Walthamstow Central (Victoria Line) or Queens Road (Barking to Gospel Oak Line).

There is plenty of cycle parking right outside The Mill

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.
