Repair Café helps 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

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.

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

Upcoming Repair Café dates

2:00pm to 5:00pm at Centre CELF

on the second Saturday of every month throughout 2019 (Closed December and January)

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. Tools for Self Reliance publish a list showing the types of tools that are most in demand, but most tools will be accepted.

Manufacturers are forcing us to constantly update and buy new stuff. Replacement means profit, but it also means wastage of energy and raw materials and more rubbish and pollution.

Companies are also refusing to make consumer items more repairable. Service instructions are often absent or limited. Many new products are solidly glued or welded together to deliberately make repairs difficult or impossible.

Do you no longer wish to accept this "repair costs more than buying new" attitude? You are not alone. Have fun with repairing instead, with help and advice from our skilled volunteers. Did you know that as many as 50 to 70% of items brought in can be fixed at a Repair Cafe?

Some of the many articles mended at our previous events include necklaces, clothing, handbags, bicycles, electric heaters, a hedge trimmer, cd players, saucepan lids, a carpet sweeper and a clock. We even help you sharpen your blunted tools.

All this for just a small donation to cover our costs. A bargain? You bet!
