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.

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).
