Sidmouth Repair Café

We are based in the Manstone area of Sidmouth but are happy to look at items for repair from across the Sid Valley.

Our first Repair Café was held in September 2018 and we meet on the last Saturday of every month except August and December. Our welcome desk and refreshments café teams make sure items find the appropriate repairer and everyone is made to feel welcome.

We have a great team of fixers including electrical engineers, and people with woodworking, textiles and general repair skills.  One of our core values is to share skills and encourage learning, so repairs are carried out in conjunction with the person who brought along the broken item.

Sidmouth Repair Cafe has been extremely well supported by our community and always generates a really positive, happy buzz from fixers, volunteers and people coming along with broken items alike.

As well as sharing and preserving repair skills for future generations, we put a high value on saving items from landfill, and also in working to affirm the value of neighbourliness and strong community.

We very much hope that this will continue into the future.
