Fixit cafe, in the North East (UK)

Hello all,

For anyone looking to join a repair event as a volunteer or as someone who needs household items needs fixing, we have our repairing club called Fixit Cafe, where we can help other people to learn about electronics and other engineering related topics, as well as to fix any household items.

So if anyone from Newcastle, Sunderland, Durham, Hexham and other surrounding areas, you are more than welcome to join us!

Our next event will take place at Blaydon Library from 10am (give or take 1 hour), on Saturday 19th November. If you have any questions, please write your comments down here.

Hope to see you there!


Hi Kotetsu :wave:

It’s great to see you’ve got involved with Fixit Cafe and to hear that you folks are still running events!

If you’d like to publicise the event on the 19th (and any future events), you’re more than welcome to set up as a group here on Restarters. This would let you add official events in the system, which get shared on Restart’s main site and our newsletter. By setting up a group, the system will also notify people who use this site and are based nearby, so it can be a good way to find new volunteers.

You can see how to do that here:

All the best with the event on the 19th!
