In a couple of instances the fixer even took the item home to either make the missing part or carry out a longer repair.
Between us over 70 kilos of repairs were carried out. Some of the items included:
A speaker, a CD/Stereo, a drill and charger, a coffee maker, a Kenwood mixer, a desk fan, a wall clock, a solar light, toy railway pieces, a sports bag, 2 baby changing mats, a fleece, a coat, and an electronic baby toy.
This is a free service to the village and we only asked for a small donation towards the cost of the hall hire. Our intention is to run the next Repair Café in the spring and we will publicise it nearer the date. Keep an eye out for information by subscribing to our occasional newsletter and in the meantime, rather than throwing out items that are broken or missing buttons, put them to one side and bring them along to the next Repair Cafe.
