Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

Things at home you want to get fixed? Want to avoid throwing them away? Join us for a cake and a drink in the downstairs room at Sherwood Methodist Church where our band of volunteer Fixers will get you involved in repairing your broken household items. Depending on the volunteers on the day, we will be repairing small electricals, bikes, jewellery, knitwear & clothing. Keep in touch via Facebook to find out which fixes are available on the day.

 

We are a voluntary organisation and the event is free to attend. Donations are welcome to keep our group going.

Want to get involved? We are always keen to have new Fixers, organisers and cake bakers on board. Get in touch: [email protected]

 

*********

Please note: This is a community repair event and we are happy to help you fix your items, but you are responsible for their safety at all times. Please back-up data on your devices before the event. 

One item per person please.  Supervised children are welcome. 

*********

Please come in through the Mansfield Road entrance of the Church (opposite the old Fat Cat pub). 

Parking: on the surrounding streets. 

Buses: Lime and Purple lines, Bingham Road stop.

Nottingham Fixers

The rejuvenated Nottingham Fixers are a band of volunteers who want to change the culture from 'if it's broken then chuck it', to 'if it's broken let's fix it.' And we like to have a cuppa and cake while we're doing it!

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.
