NEXT SESSION : Saturday 20 August from 10 am to 1 pm at Malvern Cube in Albert Road North, Malvern WR14 2YF.
PAT testing seems to be popular with our customers so we shall continue with this service for the foreseeable future. We currently only test electrical items on arrival - if you'd like your electrical appliance to be tested after it's repaired, please tell the repairer.
If volunteering with us appeals to you, please leave your name and contact details at reception on arrival and we shall get in touch with you.
SPECIAL MESSAGE: WILL THE OWNER OF A WOODEN GARDEN BENCH BROUGHT FOR REPAIR IN MAY PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US!
OUR MONTHLY REPAIR
We accept repairs to all your household and personal items including electrical, electronic and mechanical appliances and devices, clocks, toys, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and garments - and much more. If you have furniture repairs, please come early in case the item needs to be clamped for a couple of hours before it can be safely removed.
Sometimes the repairer may choose to take it home to complete. Make sure you exchange contact details with him so that he can get in touch with you when it's ready for collection and you're also able to contact him if you have any questions.
Although we prefer items to be brought to our monthly sessions, in exceptional circumstances, and if something needs urgent attention and fixing, we're happy to 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 take time over a repair in their workshops at home.
As COVID-19 still seems to be present in our district, we continue to ask both customers and volunteers to take care and 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.
You can find the latest news and updates on our Malvern Hills Repair Cafe Facebook page.

Need those tools sharpened to finish all the jobs in the garden?

SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC
FIND YOUR NEAREST REPAIR CAFE
In the current economic climate and with costs set to rise even higher, repair makes even more sense! No item is too small and almost everything can be repaired very simply with the right knowledge and tools. Unfortunately, the occasional item is beyond repair and we're always reluctant to have to admit it.
New Repair Cafes are opening in the UK every week and our Repair Cafe West Midlands Network is growing too.
If you cannot get to our monthly sessions in Malvern, why not visit one of them? Most are on Facebook and some have a website so you can find out more details of venue and opening times, etc.
The following Repair Cafes all open regularly and offer a reliable and competent repair service:
Alcester, Bewdley, Bromsgrove, Ledbury, Leominster, Ludlow, Kenilworth, Kidderminster, Redditch, Solihull, Stourbridge, Tewkesbury and Worcester.
Opening soon - Repair Cafe Stratford-upon-Avon!
