4th Nov 17 – Laptop & PC

This Repair Cafe is run in partnership with the Kinder Tech team. Bring along your go-slow laptop or broken computer. We have fantastic volunteer repair techs who will do their very best to help you leave the café happy and refreshed.

Our team of experts will diagnose problems and discuss solutions. They can fix many software issues on the day, but if spare parts are needed they’ll give you an idea of cost so you can decide how to proceed. If you would like to know more about your repairs please stay with the volunteer and learn through watching.

If it is time to bid farewell to your old PC or laptop, our IT volunteers are able to carry out a ‘data wipe’ but there would not be time to do this at the Cafe, they will tell you how much they would charge.

NOTE: We do not repair mobile phones, email us if you want recommended commercial repairers. If your phone is un-repairable we are able to recycle your old phone, learn more here.  Or learn about our small household electrical goods repair cafe here.

HRC will also be hosting a small clothing repair station alongside the Kinder Tech Team’s laptop and PC repair service.

Come along and have a cup of tea or coffee, a piece of cake and have a chat with like-minded people.  Booking is recommended if you are bringing something to repair or remake; there is no cost though donations are very welcome. If you have any queries or want to book a FREE repair please fill in this form.

Monthly craft upcycling demos

We plan to have a demonstration of some creative upcycling at each Café by a local craftspeople to show you what can be done with a no longer needed ‘waste’ resource. Learn more here.

This is a great way to save money and to help reduce the number of plastic bottles in circulation. Learn more here 

We always need more volunteers too -as general helpers or people with technical repair and craft skills.
