What's On? 2020 Events:

The last Saturday of the month is Repair Café day!

Our Repair Café events are friendly, fun and great for the environment - they save you money, and keep stuff out of landfill. Drop your broken household items in and our team will see if they can help you fix them - all for free (donations gratefully accepted, to cover the costs of materials and room hire). The 2018 events were sponsored by Droitwich Spa CVS, who do excellent community support work in and around Droitwich. In 2019/20 we are partnering with Droitwich Library who are providing us with space to run this great community event.

Tech Thursday 2020 - any takers?

We're ran some FREE "Tech Thursday" meet-ups, where we be dug out the soldering irons and laptops to have fun with Arduino, Micro:Bit, Raspberry Pi and all manner of resistors, capacitors and LEDs. We'd like to get these fun and educational events back on the cards for 2020!

If you've ever fancied yourself as a roboteer, technology geek or the next Elon Musk then TechThursday is the place to meet others like you, but we do need someone to run it! If you're interested, please get in touch (or pop along to our Repair Cafe for a chat!)

New year, new toys, broken by boxing day? If any of your springs have sprung out of where they should be, we may be able to fix them for you! Pop along with your broken household items and our expert team will try their very best to help fix them. Repair, reuse, recycle - and stop things going into landfill unneccessarily.

We've done everything from curtains to clocks - come and see if we can help you to get new life out of family heirlooms! Last repairs accepted at 2pm.
