OUR LOCK-DOWN MOBILE REPAIR SERVICE IS NOW OPEN!
We're pleased that our lockdown repair service has been so well-received and thank you for only getting in touch if you have an 'essential' item for repair. We are still accepting appliances that are needed for food preparation, all kitchen and household equipment, garden machinery and entertainment devices such as televisions, laptops, computers etc. With the easing of lockdown restrictions, we can now accept some of your less essential items.
Please email the address below for a copy of the guidelines and the registration form.
OUR LOCKDOWN REPAIR
Seven of our regular repairers have been providing a lockdown repair service during the past few weeks. This has gone extremely smoothly with customers soon getting used to the new system. This involves them delivering the item to the repairer with the appropriate skills who lives closest to them.
Before referral to a repairer, our phone Triage service provides the opportunity to discuss the problem in more detail. The advice given has enabled some customers to self-repair without the need to take the item to a repairer.

SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC
Most Repair Cafes across the world are now closed due to COVID-19. Many, including your local Repair Cafe Malvern Hills, do not know when they will be able to open again safely to offer the usual range of instant repairs in what has become a highly social and busy cafe environment.
Instead of continuing to open more Repair Cafes across the West Midlands, our Community Award Fund is currently supporting our lockdown service.
During the coming weeks we shall be consulting with our full volunteer team for their views on how we can continue to offer a safe and secure repair service in the months and years ahead.
Repair Cafe Malvern Hills opened in December 2012 and we look forward to celebrating our eighth anniversary in December 2020!
Our regular sharpener is now providing a weekly sharpening service from his work unit on Spring Lane South, Malvern Link.
Up to three items can be dropped off between 11 am and 1 pm on an allocated Saturday morning and collected the following Saturday at the same time.
If you would like more information on this service, please email us for more information and a registration form.
Our sewing team has also been busy during lockdown, making scrubs and laundry bags for the NHS.
