Newton Central School is now holding Repair Cafes once every term to encourage us to repair and recycle things rather than throw things away.

So bring your damaged and broken things along on 31 July between 11am and 2pm and our volunteer experts will do their best to repair them for free.

Get that old bike out of your garage and get it serviced or that puncture fixed.

What about that lamp that doesn’t go on; the toaster, kettle or radio?

Those pants you wish you could get taken up or dress let out?

That toy that needs stitching or gluing?

The laptop that you wish someone would take a look at?

The chair with a wobbly leg? The coffee table with the piece that needs screwing or nailing or gluing back in?

From past experience, about 70% of items are successfully repaired. If you are happy with your repair, donations / koha gratefully received to help fund future Repair Cafes.

If you want to share your repairing or organising skills, please email
