Repair Cafe

Next Repair Cafe: 28th January


Toss it? No way!

We run two Repair Cafes a month at the fab Lab Central on the ground floor of Redbridge Central Library in Ilford from 2pm to 3.45pm.

A customer's feedback:

"Wanted to pass on a huge thanks to Alvin and the other two men who worked alongside him to take my laminator machine apart and put it together again on Sat. I have since used it and it is working perfectly. I am delighted to have saved something from going to landfill (with the help of the Repair Cafe) and have my machine back in use.

I will see you another Saturday with some beads that have been sitting in a box for a long time waiting to be restrung! It is a brilliant service to have 🙂" Sam


Special Repair Cafe this Saturday, 28th January!


The Special Repair cafe is this Saturday, January 28th from 1pm to 4pm at Redbridge Central Library with extra repairs on offer: laptops, mobile phones, photographic equipment and Dr Bike.


Bring along anything portable and we can see if we can mend it together…. Toys, pottery, shoes…. First come, first served. Or do your own repairs in our space and let us see you at work!


At the same time we are running a training for volunteers who want to learn how to replace mobile phone screens to add this to our regular offer.

2 places left!

If you are interested, get in touch. We are always looking for more volunteers with repair skills or who want to help out in admin ways.

Tips on how to repair here.
