FOLLOWING a successful launch last year, a repair café is set to host its second event in Broughton.

The Repair Café set up by Biggar Area Climate Care will head to Broughton Village Hall next weekend in a bid to help people fix broken household items.

A spokesperson said: “These types of events reduce emissions, waste and household costs whilst offering opportunity to learn about repair, meet people and chat over tea, coffee and homebaking.

“The types of fixes on offer are electrical, electronic, battery/mechanical, textiles and clothing, simple furniture and simple brass and woodwind instruments, garden tool and knife sharpening and a new offering of jewellery repairs.”

The family friendly event will feature a children’s craft table where youngsters can be entertained while the café’s team of skilled and enthusiastic volunteers get to work.

The spokesperson added: “Let’s spring into action this January and help our planet and our pockets.

“Dig out those things that you have tucked away in the hope that you will one day get around to getting them fixed and bring them along with your garden tools and kitchen knives for sharpening.”

The Biggar Are Climate Care Repair Café is free to access thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, however, donations are welcome.

To guarantee a timeslot with the repair café on Saturday, January 27 between 10am and 1pm, book in your items for repair by emailing: or text/phone 07976310060.
