How Repair Cafe Works

What is Repair Café?

We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Even things with almost nothing wrong, which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or they no longer know how. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill quickly lost. Repair Café changes all that! People who might otherwise be sidelined are getting involved again. Valuable practical knowledge is getting passed on. Things are being used for longer and don’t have to be thrown away. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products. It cuts CO2 emissions, for example, because manufacturing new products causes CO2 to be released.

Change mindsets

  • Recycle
  • Reuse
  • Relove
  • Help Save the Planet

Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light. And, once again, to appreciate their value. Repair Café helps change people’s mindset. This is essential to kindle people’s enthusiasm for a sustainable society. But most of all, Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Why don’t you give it a go?

To cultivate awareness of the bigger picture and of the pronounced impact reuse has on the environment, on personal well-being, and on our community's resiliency;
To cultivate motivation to extend the life of the things we have through repair; and
To cultivate the capacity to repair, through learning to fix things ourselves, or finding out how and where to have them repaired.

Thank you to the team for all your help. Bedside lamps repaired so saved from the dump and no need to buy new ones. Brilliant service and everyone so friendly. 👏

"After my visit to Sherfield Repair Meeting last Saturday, I just want to let Gary know that my soup maker has just made perfect soup, and Simon know that my steam iron is working perfectly. Thank you so much to both of them for their patience." Dianne C

Kate Hope

I was SO impressed! It was extremely efficient and welcoming. We would be delighted if you were to return to Lychpit Hall in the future and are happy to do whatever we can to support your return. Thank you very much indeed for coming to Old Basing & Lychpit and for offering your excellent, talented services to our residents!

Helena Nicholson

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to Diana. She spent a ridiculous amount of hours fixing my son's 'unrepairable' toy cat and we're beyond grateful for the time spent, care and compassion she showed with the incredibly hard job of making Leo look just like Leo again. My son hasn't stopped smiling and cuddling Leo since he received him back in Friday. What a kind and lovely lady Diana is. I hope she knows how grateful and thrilled we are, but I just wanted to thank her again via your site. You all do a great job, and we're lucky to have you in our area. Thank you.

Vanessa

Very many thanks to you and your wonderful team for organising the Repair Cafe in Silchester yesterday. Everyone that I have spoken to was very happy, and delighted with the repairs that your team were able to carry out. I've published a few of the photos that we took from today on our Facebook and Instagram pages: https://www.facebook.com/sustainablesilchester/posts/pfbid0Us2nXCc91LZVn8NnSMfTYmUgsDnCZrKubWSronfTQc16hLJr56EWtsEW4XFJ2BXWl We do hope that you will consider visiting Silchester again!!!
