The Ledbury public’s appetite for repair was clearly demonstrated by the success of our first two sessions in February and March.  We are keen to develop the idea of Keeping Repair Alive in Ledbury without, of course, risking any spread of the Covid-19 virus amongst our volunteers, clients, or the public in general.

We are therefore going to try out a new way of operating this popular service on Saturday 12th September in the Burgage Hall, from 10:00 to 12:30.  (Please note that, although this will be the 2nd Saturday in September, subsequent monthly sessions will be on the first Saturday of the month.)

This will be a drop off and collect repair service for portable household items of a mechanical, electrical or ceramic nature.  [Please note: All items will be sanitised before being worked on.  This means that we cannot accept any textile or fabric repairs, or any other item where application of sanitising products would cause damage.]

Our volunteer repairers will work at safely spaced-out tables inside the hall, with public drop-off and return desks located at separate doors.

Sadly, we won’t be able to operate our own café inside the hall, but we encourage you to support the many other cafés in Ledbury whilst your item is being fixed.  We will phone you when your item is ready, and it must be collected by 12:45 at the very latest.

Please book a time slot for your item needing repair, either online at https://repaircafeledbury.org.uk/events/september-2020/ (any further details and updates will be posted here) or by telephoning 07518-921300.

Repair Cafés are local schemes that promote repair as an alternative to throwing things away.  The idea was born in Amsterdam in 2009, and there are now over 1500 Repair Cafés worldwide.

Repair Cafés do not charge a fee for repairs, but donations towards running costs are gratefully accepted into our cash quarantine box!
