Ashburton Repair Café
The Ashburton Repair Cafe usually offers in house repairs of many items including electrics, fabric garments, furniture, toys, etc.
Our Repair Cafe covers Ashburton but people come from Buckfastleigh, Newton Abbot, and sometimes Bovey Tracey. We have been running this much loved and needed service since November 2018 and, until earlier this year, ran on the third Saturday of the month.
We are now re-thinking the way we do things due to Covid-19. We are working towards an online system where people book in their item and leave it in a safe place for quarantine. A volunteer will then pick it up and repair, then re-quarantine for pick up by the customer. We have also thought of outreach for those who cannot get to the repair cafe or pick-up point. We are in the process of looking for a workshop space for during the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantining space.
