Can’t make it? EVI Repair Café runs on the third Monday of every month. Scroll down for a list of upcoming dates!
If you have the skills to fix items or would like to support us by helping coordinate our monthly meet / greet visitors – we would love to hear from you. We’re especially in need of sewing volunteers! Get in touch: Email email@example.com, ring 01495708022 or pop in.
Please note: Our volunteers will do everything they can to help fix your item, but unfortunately some items are either too expensive to repair or are not repairable. Our experienced fixers will advise you on what’s best to do. We are also unable to repair microwaves or white goods (refrigerators, washing machines etc) due to safety reasons.
Those items that are not repairable following a visit to one of our Repair Cafes can be recycled at the Authority’s household waste and recycling centres (below)… or there may be a local business who can help in your area! Click here to search.
