The BIG FIX returns! – News

The BIG FIX returns next month and it has one aim – to fix and breathe new life into as many broken things as possible. 

The BIG FIX is an annual event led by us, and returns after a two year break on Saturday May 14.

Skilled menders, fixers, tinkerers and tailors from all over the country will give their time and expertise for free to help fix items that might have otherwise been thrown away.

Anything from broken clocks, jewellery, clothing and textiles or gardening equipment to broken electronics can be brought for repair.

Other volunteers help in organising the visitors and running the café supplying teas and coffees, and stocking them with gastronomic home-made treats, like cheese straws and lemon drizzle cake.

Excitingly, due to its previous success in Devon, the project is for the second time going nationwide. Cafés from Devon, Wiltshire, Sussex and Buckinghamshire are already involved, with many more expected to join.

Dozens of Repair Cafés around the country will be held at the same time, with one goal – to fix as much as possible.
