Bedford Repair Cafe is back again and the volunteer repairers, fixers and techies are ready to fix your world…

Returning to the Tavistock Centre with an all star line up of fixers, the Repair Cafe ethos means you’ll learn how to get your bags buttoned, tyres turning, zips zapped, radios roaring and dolls dolled up.

At their last event, 33 items passed over the workbenches, diverting some 89kg of loved-but-lost items from landfill and back into Bedfordian hearts and homes.

The crafty team of fixers will be at Tavistock Community Centre between noon and 4.30pm on Saturday 22 February.

Booking is essential so the team can be ready for your repair – just go to

And if you don’t have anything to get fixed, feel free to come along for a nosey or a chat. Maybe you’d like to join our team!

Remember – all repairs are free, but a donation in the tip jar helps keep these volunteer-run events going.
