Information

We repair : clothing, fabric and leather (e.g. suitcase, handbag) electrical appliances (e.g. kettle, radio) computer equipment (e.g. laptop / tablet, small printer) small furniture (e.g. chair) bric-a-brac (e.g. mantlepiece item) blades (e.g. kitchen knife, scissors) and, on request, bicycles and clocks.

We do not repair repair large TVs (too bulky) lawnmowers (too messy), soiled clothing.

Sometimes demand outstrips the capacity of our repairers to see everyone. Or volunteer numbers may be lower than normal. So it helps if we can have an idea of demand before the event. You can register your interest in advance using this online form https://forms.gle/yneVszcvxSypGFZE6.

St Mary’s church does not charge us for using their premises but we like to contribute to their running costs. So donations are essential to maintain the viability of this scheme. https://theparishofputney.churchsuite.com/donate/fund/vzjyyrcz

Our motto is FIX IT, DON’T BIN IT. Often the fix can be quite simple, like some restitching, a new fuse, some glue etc. This is why we ask you to watch what is going on. Hopefully this will inspire you to take on more repairs yourself.

We need more repairers of electricals, ceramics and blades. To apply, please complete a) the sign-up form https://forms.gle/AZfDf9V3g1LzW9wh7 and b) a safety form run by our associate group Restarters https://wiki.restarters.net/Restarter_Safety_Guidelines
