Repair Cafe

What do you do with a broken toaster, bike or jumper? Throw it away? No way!

Come along to our Repair Cafe where volunteer repair experts will be available to help make repairs free of charge. We'll have some tools and materials but you may need to order extra parts.

People visiting the Repair Café can bring along their broken items from home. These include:

  • toasters
  • lamps
  • hair dryers
  • clothes
  • bikes
  • toys
  • crockery.

The Repair Cafe specialists almost always have the know-how.

We're trialling these sessions for 6 months at Strood and Chatham Community Hubs, and if they're successful, we'll open them up in our other Medway libraries.

Session times, dates and locations

The sessions will run on Saturdays from 10.30am to 1pm.

There's no need to book, just turn up with your broken item.
