About Repair Cafés

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – July

Despite the slight relaxation of the social distancing requirements it seems most unlikely that we will be able to run a normal Repair Café meeting in the foreseeable future.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and are considering a number of options and we will update the information on this website and and circulate any details through our mailing list when a way forward has been put in place.


Repair Cafés are local schemes that promote repair as an alternative to throwing things away.  In Ledbury we are holding three-hour Repair Café meetings, usually on the first Saturday of every month, from 10.00am (last entry 12.30pm) in The Burgage Hall.  Local residents can bring their broken household items for fixing on the spot with the help of our volunteer repairers.  Repair Cafés do not charge a fee for repairs but all donations towards the cost of running the sessions will be gratefully accepted.

About Repair Café Ledbury

We have a growing team of repair experts who will be present at the Repair Café meetings.  Our team members are handy with repairing:

  • clothing & textiles
  • knitting
  • toys
  • household goods
  • tool sharpening
  • electrical appliances
  • electronic equipment
  • furniture and other wooden objects.

In addition we have volunteers who meet and greet people at the Repair Café, serve tea, coffee and delicious cakes while you wait for a repairer to become available.

Future 2020 dates

In the current medical emergency we have no confirmed future dates.

Doors open at 10.00am and close at 12.30pm.

If you have a broken household item, bring it along and we’ll try and fix it.

Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer and help us run this community service please email [email protected].

We are looking forward to seeing you soon at Repair Café Ledbury.

Note that normally only one item per person per session can be accommodated so that we can help as many people as possible.  If the session is not busy we may be able to consider additional items towards the end of the session.  Items that cannot be safely operated indoors, such as petrol mowers and chain saws or dirty or oily items, etc, cannot be accepted for repair.  Please see our Terms and Conditions page for further details of how we operate.  If you are not sure where The Burgage Hall is, here’s a map of central Ledbury to help.

Repair Café Ledbury is supported by Sustainable Ledbury and Repair Café West Midlands.
