The Dusty Forge repair cafe pops up again next Saturday 25 June, so come and meet our friendly fixers if you’ve got problems with your laptop or TV, or if you buggy wheels or chair legs are wobbly or your lamp’s on the blink. Our textile fixer can check out repairs to your favourite top or bag or give your soft toys some TLC.

NB: our bike fixers are away this time – they’ll return for our 23 July repair cafe. Our small team of volunteer fixers always do their best although we can’t guarantee success every time. But we can guarantee a warm welcome and a free service with free light refreshments while you wait your turn. We start at 10.00am and check in last items at 12noon for a 1.00pm finish – we recommend arriving a.s.a.p. after 10.00am to beat the rush. To be fair to all our customers we ask you to bring a maximum of two items – we guarantee to check out your priority item if we’re really busy.

NEW DROP-OFF SERVICE: we’re piloting a new scheme with ACE Benthyg, so if you bring any portable electricalelectronic items that are beyond repair we’ll arrange for free recycling disposal!


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.
