Great Shelford Repair Cafe 2 – 5 pm Saturday 29 February

Our latest Repair Café where we shall repair electrical, electronic and mechanical items, bikes, textiles, jewellery, and general bits & bobs.  Watch the repairers work on your item and get their advice; have a cuppa and piece of cake while you wait.  All free; donations welcome.  You can just turn up with your item, but you may have to wait; it’s better to book it in.  Bookings will be open from 3 – 27 February inclusive – go to circularcambridge.org and follow the links.

Note that the Free Church are organising a Swish event (exchange of good quality second-hand clothes) at the church at the same time – see local publicity

Repairers in action at one of our Cafes

It’s a free event (donations very welcome) where we match amazing repairers with people who need stuff fixing.  Bring along the following to be repaired and to pick up repair skills: jewellery (and jewellery cleaning), sewing and fabric repairs (no alterations; and clean items only please), small household appliances and electrical items, knives or tools to be sharpened, computers, mobile phones, bicycles, and general bits’n’bobs.  This time we are also offering a book repair service, so if you have books with broken spines or damaged/loose pages, we can look at those too.    /cont’d

You can turn up with your item on the day, but as before we expect to be very busy so it’s best to book it in.  Bookings will be open throughout May – visit http://circularcambridge.org/repaircafe/ (where you will find more information about Repair Cafes) and follow the links.  The repairers are brilliant and can fix most things but there are no guarantees.  Lots of tea and cake available of course!
