Get ready to repair in 2024!

We’re getting ready for the 2024 repair calendar in Abingdon! There are so many benefits to repairing items instead of disposing and buying something new – including saving money, helping protect the environment, making sure we keep repair skills going, and making sure you can keep using much-loved items.

See what we’ve got planned for 2024 below:

Repair Cafe – for items such as electronic gadgets, toys and furniture, as well as knife and tool sharpening

5-7pm on third Thursday every other month at Oxford Wood Recycling – starting 18th January

10:30am-1pm on third Saturday every other month at Roysse Room, Guildhall, Abingdon – starting 17th February

Sewing repairs – for simple mending jobs, patching, zips, turning up hems

10:30am-1pm every first Saturday of the month in the Kempster Room, underneath the Abingdon County Hall Museum

Bike checks – for a check-over, tyre repairs, and more

10:30am-1pm every third Saturday of the month, under the arches of the Abingdon County Hall Museum
