Let's fix it: Redditch Repair Cafe is back again this Saturday

Ross Crawford 28th Jul, 2021

THE Redditch Repair Cafe is back again after its successful post-lockdown relaunch last month.

It means the town’s expert repairers are ready to breath new life into all manner of possessions which may be ripped, torn or have simply stopped working.

It’s all happening this Saturday, July 31, at Community House in Easemore Road close to the town centre.

Redditch Standard editor Ross Crawford was among the satisfied customers last month.

He said: “The range of skills on hand at the Repair Cafe are amazing – there are people who can fix electrical items, electronics, computers, bicycles the lot, as well as someone who successfully sewed up by ripped jeans!”

The repairers give up their time for free and all repairs are carried out for free, although donations are welcome.

As the country is still not free of Covid the cafe part of the Repair Cafe will not be open and people are asked to drop off their damaged goods between 10am and 12midday at Community House – ample free parking is available.

The team will then set to work repairing the goods.

When ready they will phone the owner for collection before 2pm the same day.

After last month’s successful re-launch organiser Clare Beckhelling said: “Many people said they were glad to find us.

“It’s a great concept and we’d like to thank everyone for their support.”
