Repair Café re-opens to help you fix it!

Learn to mend your broken items yourself with support from skilled volunteers

Enjoy giving your things a new lease of life and appreciate them again

Help reduce waste and stop things going to landfill - be part of the circular economy!

 

Llandrindod Repair Café has been running since June 2014, and was chosen by The Guardian as one of 17 top community projects from around the UK in their "Live Better" Community Project series. In 2019 it celebrated its 1,000th repair.

The Repair Café idea began in Amsterdam in 2007 and has since been taken up all round the world.

 

Second Saturday of the month 2 - 5pm

RESTARTING AT LAST! With Covid-safe drop-off service at the Hive (South Crescent, corner of Middleton Street and Temple Gardens, Llandrindod)

for admin support and fixing - please enquire if you drop in, or via our Facebook page or email llandrindodrepaircafe@gmail.com 

 

To protect the health of Repair Café volunteers, visitors may be expected to wear a face mask. Items can be collected on the second Saturday of the following month, or by arrangement with the Fixpert. Please note that each visitor can bring a maximum of two items per session, and that large items (e.g. bicycles, lawnmowers) cannot be accepted at present. There is no charge for the Repair Café (except for the cost of replacement parts), but donations to cover expenses are gratefully accepted. The Repair Café team plan to hold repair events at the Celf Centre, Llandrindod, when it is safe to do so.

We welcome feedback in person or via email (above).

Put your unused tools to good use!

 

The Repair Café is an official collection point for Tools for Self Reliance Cymru. Have a clear-out of any unwanted tools or sewing machines and we will help put them to good use. The Repair Cafe has a list of wanted tools, but most items will be accepted (especially workshop tools).

The Repair Café is Back!

Saturday 14th March, 2pm - 5pm

The Celf  Centrethe Celf Centre, Tremont Road, Llandrindod

The second Repair Café event of 2015 will be held in a new venue - The Celf  Centre (the former Theatr Powys Drama Centre).

The Celf Centre is on the corner of Trefonen Lane and Tremont Road, which is the main road north out of the town.  It's in front of Trefonen Primary School, and is immediately recognisable by the gold and silver coloured spiral sculpture. There's a small car park also off-road parking in Trefonen Lane.

As always, the event is open from 2pm to 5pm.

The usual range of 'fixperts' will be back to help you fix almost anything that can be repaired, sharpened or otherwise brought back to use!

Repair Cafe Fixperts

Entry to the Repair Café is free.  Materials used are charged for and donations are requested to help cover costs. There will be a REFRESHMENTS counter,  a SEED-SWAP table organised by Llandrindod Freegle, and a RAFFLE.

Please note: The Repair Café will be returning to the Rock Park in April when the refurbishment work to the building has been completed.

For MOTHERS DAY this year, Sunday 15th March, how about giving your mother or grandmother a unique and personalised treat, by fixing one of her treasured possessions at the Repair Café? What could be nicer for her than to have you repair something for her and bring new life to an old favourite?

Ask her! Is her LEATHER PURSE or favourite HAND-BAG coming un-stitched? is her prettiest SCARF fraying or a button loose on her best COAT? some heirloom JEWELLERY needing repair? perhaps an irreplaceable FRYING PAN with a wobbly handle? does her BIKE have a puncture? or her CD player stopped working? YOU can fix it for her. Bring it to the  REPAIR CAFE on Saturday 14th March and our fixperts will show you how.
