Bring your item to fix to one of our events! Look out for event posters around Eynsham, in the GreenTEA Brew, on Eynsham Online, on the Facebook groups: “Green TEA (Transition Eynsham Area)”; “Spotted: Eynsham”; and “Free in Eynsham”.
If you like the idea of the Repair Café and want to get involved, either to help run the event or to fix things, please get in touch!

During lockdown, the sewing volunteers of the Repair Cafe, plus other kind people, made face masks for the community.
We did not sell the masks, but asked for a donation to cover the cost of materials. We give our time and skills freely to help others in this time of need.
In total we made about 500 masks! And people were so generous when donating that, after we had covered the cost of materials, we were able to donate £800 to local charities: £200 each to Eynsham preschool, Eynsham Food Bank, the British Legion, and Crisis (in Oxford). This is such a wonderful outcome and a silver lining in the general bad news of the pandemic.
Some volunteers were also willing to accept items from people who got in touch asking if it a possible to have things looked at. We were successful in fixing number of things this way :-)
