The Dusty Forge repair cafe team of volunteer fixers will be celebrating our second anniversary on Saturday 23 October from 10.00am to 1.00pm, when we’ll be ready to check out your broken items for free. So call in if your TV’s on the blink or your tablet won’t ‘talk’ to you, or if your buggy trolley wheels are wonky or your bike needs basic repairs. Our textile fixer will check out repairs to your favourite tops or bags – and she’s happy to discuss the possibility of reviving elderly teddy bears – just like on TV!! Our IT digital fixer will also be on hand with 1-2-1 advice about how to make best use of your phone tablet etc. All repaired electrical items will be PAT-tested to ensure safety – but remember we can’t fix microwaves. Our repair cafe has become very popular and we want to offer all our customers a fair turn, so please bring a maximum of 2 items and we’ll guarantee to check out your priority repair. We need to give our fixers maximum time to complete their work, so please note that we’ll stop taking in new customer requests at 12noon – we recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment!! We look forward to offering all our customers a socially-distanced but warm welcome plus light refreshments while waiting your turn – see you soon… 


Although some of our volunteers are experts, many are simply people who like fixing and tinkering. Others (like the founders!) aren’t practical at all but can organise; help with administration; or staff the front desk.
