Remote repairs on offer - £500 already raised for the NHS


With so many people staying at home and finding that domestic items need repair  - and with some of the Repair Cafe team bored with nothing to do - the sensible solution was to open a 'remote' facility.   This has been a great success.  Those who have been able to walk to the drop-off point have had repairs carried out, and contributed between them over £500 towards the local NHS.


 You can drop off items on Wednesday / Friday mornings at  ‘Brambles’, Vicarage Road, Lover SP5 2PG (nearly opposite the Redlynch Village Hall).  The volunteers are happy to consider repairing all sorts of domestic items i.e. Clocks, Ceramics, Woodwork, Furniture, Laptop, Tablet, Electric/Electronics, Toys etc.  In fact, they say that "if you can get it in the boot of your car, we will give it a look".  On arrival you will find the garage door open to allow you to ‘Drop Off’ and you can book the item in (from 2m away) at an adjoining window.  Hand Sanitiser will be available.   All Government Guide Lines regarding social distancing are strictly followed.  All being well, you will receive a phone call when the items are ready for you to pick up the following week.  So, as the restrictions are slowly eased, you might like to take up the opportunity to get something repaired.  The slogan is “Do Not Bin It We May Fix It”
