What is a Repair Café?
Repair Cafés are helping to change attitudes by presenting an innovative
approach to waste reduction, social cohesion and the transference of craft
skills, through the act of repairing, upgrading and maintaining a broad range
of products. They are a community-led initiative offering a friendly meeting
place, open to all, where hand-portable broken, damaged or torn household
and personal possessions are repaired or mended by a team of multi-skilled, highly competent repairers.
Items regularly brought to Forest Row Repair Café include furniture,
household electrical appliances, electronic gadgets and devices, toys,
garden equipment, bicycles, clocks, clothes and textiles…… and much much more!
Our repairers love fixing things and no job is too small or too challenging!
