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)

****MORE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED****

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).

Repair Cafe - solderingThe next two Llandrindod Repair Café events will take place on Saturday 18th October and Saturday 15th November in the Rock Park, Llandrindod Wells, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Please bring along your broken and damaged items from home!

A variety of fixperts will be present to repair such things as small electrical items, computers, clothes, leather items and bicycles.

Tools and materials will be on hand; people are encouraged to make repairs themselves where possible.

Entry to the café is free (donations are requested to cover running costs). Items fixed at previous events include necklaces, handbags, bicycle wheels, electric heaters, saucepan lids, and even a carpet sweeper!

Llandrindod Repair Cafe

The café’s slogan is “Throw it Away? No Way!”

By promoting repairs, Trawsnewid Llandrindod Transition wants to help reduce the mountains of waste.

The Repair Café is also meant to put the local community in touch with each other in new ways, and to help people discover that a lot of know-how and practical skills can be found close to home.

Llandrindod Repair Café was recently featured on the Guardian website as a shining example of a local community group. Joe Botting, speaking for the Repair Café organisers, said “It’s nice to see the hard work of all the fixperts and volunteers being recognised. We hope that this publicity will encourage other people to set up Repair Cafés elsewhere.”
