2G3S Repair Cafes

2G3S is short for Going Greener in the Shelfords, Stapleford and Sawston. We organise repair cafes in Great Shelford, Whittlesford and Sawston with about 4 events each year. These are listed on our website and on the Cambridge Carbon Footprint events pages. We recommend booking in your item for repair , following the link on the event web page.

You can contact us via [email protected] if you have any questions.

We also support the Dr Bike Stapleford bike repair workshops which are held every Tuesday afternoon from 3pm - 6pm at the Old Slaughterhouse on Church Road in Stapleford.

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.
