Another cracking day at the Repair Café on 8th June with more than 80 visitors, and 62 repairs being attempted.
We had visitors from all over East and West Sussex and one of the highlights of the day was getting Buzz Lightyear and his mates to start talking again – videos will be posted on our Facebook page soon!
One of us also ended up repairing a blocked hoover by taking the hose outside and blowing through it the wrong way. It worked, but it may take the blower (me!) a while to recover!! I am hoping I can pay out large amounts of money for that NOT to be posted on Facebook!!!
Then we repaired a toaster by removing a large deceased bumble bee from inside it! The toaster is now fine, which is more than can be said for the bumble bee, who sadly has lost his buzz ……!!
As always – thanks to all of you who are supporting us. See you on 13th July and of course our big event on 10th August when we celebrate our 1st birthday!!
Chailey Repair Café is part of a world-wide movement where volunteer experts repair things free of charge – although a donation towards running costs is invited. Anyone can bring along broken items or clothing needing repair from home, and have a cuppa and some cake while they wait!
Chailey Repair Café next opens at Chailey Village Hall (next to the Five Bells Pub) 10am – 1pm on Saturday 13th July and then on the second Saturday of each month.
