Some of our friends and followers have been asking how our first ever Repair Cafe went, under our WEEE Reuse and Repair project. Below are some pictures, stats and customer feedback!

THE CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

“Thank you *so* much for the massive effort you put into repairing my buggy today. It was an unexpected item, but you took it and came up with a clever workaround when it was clear that the manufactureres had designed it not to be fixed! (grr!) Brilliant! I’ll be back (hopefully with something else, not the buggy again!)”

“Excellent service. Many thanks. Although no repairs necessary. Pleased with result.”

“First visit to the repair cafe – just what I have been looking for ages! I will be back. Super helpful people.”

“Needs more people with mechanical repair skills”

“Great job!” (cllr Craig Simmons, Sheriff of Oxford City)
