Chudfix Repair Café

Chudfix Repair Café is based in Chudleigh, Devon. Chudfix was officially set up in January 2020 bringing together a wide range of people motivated by a diverse set of reasons including:

  • concerns for the environment
  • a dislike of the growing throwaway culture
  • a desire to meet new people
  • to help others in our community
  • a love of fixing things and tinkering
  • or the joy of passing on new skills.

Our first Repair Café was held on 29 February 2020 and was a huge success. In just 2.5 hours our fixers checked 52 items, repaired 30 of them (58%) and offered advice and information about a new part on a further 11 items (21%). 25 volunteers helped on the day and approximately 100 people attended on the morning of the café. All agreed that there was a fantastic buzz in the air and a had a great sense of community spirit.

The Chudfix committee were planning to run regular repair café throughout 2020 but due to the Covid-19 lockdown we have had to put our plans on hold until government guideline allows us to meet again.
