All for free (donations welcome!)

Please only bring household items that you can carry.

Please note the start time is 2pm (please give us time to set up before you arrive!). Theres a queueing system as repairers become available – we’ll do our best to get through everyone quickly but there is tea and cake whilst you wait. Often its been busiest at the beginning so coming later can be an advantage in terms of waiting time.

Don’t forget to bring all the relevant leads and connectors/chargers etc. if you bring an electrical item.

If you can give us details in advance, that might help the repairers prepare.
