WE'RE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE SHALL BE OPEN ON SATURDAY 15 JANUARY 2022
IN LINE WITH GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES PLEASE WEAR A FACE MASK ON ENTERING THE VENUE
We're open from 10 am to 1 pm every third Saturday in the month for all repairs including sewing. Any repairs that require more time and attention may be referred to our 'deliver, repair, collect' service' (DRC). There is no booking system but items that cannot be repaired on the day may also be transferred to DRC. Tool and knife sharpening are available and the Cube in-house cafe is open to serve you tea, coffee and a selection of homemade cakes.
OUR LOCKDOWN REPAIR
We are now open to accept repairs to all your household and personal items including electrical, electronic and mechanical appliances and devices, clocks, toys, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and garments. All furniture repairs will be transferred to our DRC service as they can be time-consuming.
Although we prefer you to bring your repairs to our monthly sessions, if you have an item that needs special or urgent attention we can still refer it to our 'deliver, repair, collect' (DRC) service. This will continue into the foreseeable future as it has proven to be so popular with both our customers and some of our repair team who enjoy the opportunity to use their own workshops at home.
We continue to ask both customers and volunteers to observe some guidelines that aim to protect everyone from infection. When using our DRC service, we try to refer you to a repairer who lives close to you so that car travel is minimised. If you have an urgent sewing repair, one of our seamstresses may be able to help you.
Do email us if you have an urgent repair and want to use this service.

SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC
Before March 2020, there were more than 2000 Repair Cafes globally. All were forced to close for 18 months or longer and unfortunately some may never be in a position to reopen.
Repair Cafe Malvern Hills has a loyal core volunteer and customer base after almost nine years of operation and that was reflected in the high usage of its 'deliver, repair, collect' lockdown service.
We have continued to support Repair Cafes across the West Midlands that received financial and resource assistance from the Community Award Fund and many have now reopened.
We continue to 'Keep Repair Alive' by being accessible, affordable and mainstream! We're in discussions with both Malvern Hills District Council and our volunteers on how we can achieve and sustain these three objectives into the future.
Repair Cafe Malvern Hills opened in December 2012 and we were proud to celebrate our eighth anniversary in December 2020!
Need those garden tools sharpened before they're put away for the winter?
Our sharpener Andy has ceased offering a weekly service from his Spring Lane unit and is now providing the same service at our monthly sessions.
Bring your kitchen knives, garden implements such as secateurs and shears, scissors and lawnmower blades.
