Throw it away? No way!

Fixers at a repair cafeRepair Cafes are free meeting places to repair things together. There are Repair Cafes worldwide and volunteers are launching one in Weymouth in May 2019. Repair cafe Weymouth is registered with www.repaircafe.org/en/

We throw away vast amounts of stuff, which could get a new lease of life with a simple repair. One repair can save up to 24 kilos of CO2 going into the atmosphere, by preventing the need to recycle old items and manufacture/ transport new ones – and it will save you money. 

At our Repair Cafe, you’ll find tools and materials and expert volunteers to help you make repairs. Please make a donation if you are happy with your repair so we can continue to help others.

  • Bring broken items from home
  • Work together with the specialists to make repairs
  • Get inspired at the reading table with books on repairs and DIY
  • Lend a hand with someone else’s repair job
  • Socialise
