Description

It’s a *SUPER* Repair Cafe,
– extra long hours 10am – *2pm*!
– *The Space & Libourne Lounge, above Keynsham Library* – we’re excited to be part of the Keynsham Environment & Climate Change event!

We will have volunteers to help with,
Simple electrics, electronics, plus engineering (mechanical), wood working, bikes, general tinkering, glueing, high street jewellery, photo restoration. Textiles – machine and hand sewing including leather, plus help with knitting, crotchet and darning. Guitar restringing and tuning, drum tightening. Phone apps, laptops. And if you let us know in advance we can also help with stained glass window assessment and advice!

If it needs power please remember to bring all cables with you!
If its fabric/dirty, please clean it first.
If its a hoover, please empty it.
Please bring any spare parts that you know will be needed, or we can suggest where you might source them – or just turn up and we’ll do our best together!
Things we don’t do: microwaves (just too dangerous, sorry, unless its a mechanical issue.) We don’t do home visits. We don’t take items in for us to sell, as we don’t have space to store anything.
If you are bringing something ‘unusual’ to be fixed, feel free to message us first.
We recommend you turn up when the cafe starts to have the best chance of having your item fixed!

Repairs are free. A donation helps to cover the costs of consumables our volunteer repairers use.

Volunteers (and cake!) warmly welcomed, please get in touch! [email protected]
