About Repair Café Ledbury
Repair Café Ledbury is moving!
After two years of operating in the Burgage Hall we are pleased to announce that we are moving to larger premises – Ledbury Community Hall. The extra space will allow us to increase the number of repairers we can accommodate while keeping at a safe distance and also have room where we can serve tea, coffee and cakes, as was the original intention of a Repair Café. We are also now accepting sewing repairs and we can advise on repair options for wooden furniture, for items which you can transport to Ledbury Community Hall yourself. As of 23rd Jan, ten repairers have confirmed their availability so we have increased the number of time-slots available to 40.
Ledbury Community Hall is fully wheelchair-accessible and there is a disabled toilet.
There is also an adjacent car park which will make it easier to deliver and collect larger items.
The first meeting in The Community Hall will be on Saturday 5th February from 10:00am. Booking is now open.
What our customers say
“Great to find the repair café back in action with a simple and safe one way system, I took my Vax vacuum in for a re-wiring job and the repairer did a super quick job restoring this brilliant bit of kit to full working order. To replace it would have cost over £100. Well done all and thanks very much.”
“Everyone was so welcoming and the standard lamp, which belonged to my husband’s parents was returned like new. A really great job and so well organised. Thank you. ”
“Many thanks for your advice on replacement part needed for my phone charger. Just to let you know all is now working well. I am very grateful to you for this valuable service.”
“I would like to thank The Repair Café at Ledbury and particularly the gentleman who restored my late husband’s carriage clock. It has not stopped ticking since I collected it almost two weeks ago. Long may it carry on, as I do love the Repair Café.”
About Repair Café Ledbury
We have a team of repair experts who will be present at the Repair Café meetings. Our team members are handy with repairing:
- household goods
- tool sharpening
- electrical appliances
- electronic equipment
- garden tools (excluding those with petrol engines)
- furniture and other wooden objects
- clothing and other textile repairs.
Repair Cafés are local schemes that promote repair as an alternative to throwing things away. In Ledbury we are holding two and a half hour Repair Café meetings, usually on the first Saturday of every month, from 10.00am to 12.30pm in Ledbury Community Hall. Local residents can bring their broken household items for fixing by one of our volunteer repairers (advance booking essential). Repair Cafés do not charge a fee for repairs but all donations towards the cost of running the sessions will be gratefully accepted.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon at Repair Café Ledbury.
Items that cannot be safely operated indoors, such as petrol mowers, 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 Ledbury Community Hall is, here’s a map of central Ledbury to help.
There is a Pay and Display carpark adjacent to the hall.
