Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). At the Repair Café you will be able to fix your clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, etc.
You'll find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of areas. Visitors bring their broken items from home. In the Repair Café, they start making their repairs, together with the specialists. It’s an ongoing learning process.
If you have nothing to repair, you are still very welcome. You can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair.
The Locking Castle Church Repair Café works alongside other cafes in the North Somerset area. To find out more visit their facebook group.
Our Repair Cafés will take place monthly on the first Saturday of the month between 11am and 2pm.
Please note that our Repair Cafés are currently postponed due to COVID-19.
We will re-start once it is safe to do so.
