Repair Cafe This Saturday

Wellingborough Eco Group and Glamis Hall will be hosting a Repair Cafe this Saturday during the Indoor Car Boot Sale. Items brought in at October’s Repair Cafe included two toasters, two stereos, a TV and some fairy lights. Why not bring in something broken to this month’s Repair Cafe, we have an electrical fixer and a clothes fixer. It will be in the reception of Glamis Hall on Saturday 13th November from 9am until 12.

Repair Cafes are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who like fixing things. Repair Cafes are completely non-commercial. There are no promises and no guarantees, but if something can be saved the repairers will give it their best efforts. Repairers are always keen to teach you how to do the repair – or at least have you watch while they do it.

There is no charge for entry or repair but donations are gratefully received and help pay for costs. You can basically bring anything you can carry that will not make a mess in the venue. Whatever it is, it might not even be broken – just dirty, and you don’t know how to clean it without damaging it – or you can’t work out how to use it without the manual – bring it along!

Come also to the indoor boot sale to support lots of stalls selling second hand items, plus there’s chips, coffee and cake. Find out more at or join our Repair Club on Facebook at
