Cambourne Repair Cafe Returns on July 16

The next Cambourne Repair Cafe will occur on Saturday, July 16 at the Hub Community Centre. The first Repair Cafe was held in December 2019 and has been delayed by the pandemic. We are delighted to be back!

Cambourne Repair Cafe is looking for volunteer repairers to help out at future Repair Cafe’s. We are looking for people with the relevant skills and experience to be comfortable attempting to repair electrical, electronic, and mechanical items (e.g. clocks, toasters, blenders, kettles, lamps, coffee machines, headphones and toys), bicycles, clothing (sewing) and potentially computers. The events are run by volunteers and usually run for 3 hours, with up to 4 items per repairer and free cakes and drinks on offer. Repair Cafe’s are non-commercial and there are no guarantees that an item can be repaired. The basic principle is to match people who have broken items with people who like fixing things!

If you are interested in volunteering as a repairer, or helping out with the organisation and running of future events, please email cambournerepaircafe@gmail.com. 

Thomas Hudson

Today we remember Thomas Hudson who will be laid to rest this afternoon. Tom was an enthusiastic and long-standing councillor for almost 14 years. He has helped shaped Cambourne and ensured residents voices were heard on many issues raised to him. We miss his presence at the Council meetings.
Tom had worked many years for British Rail, and donations can be made to the Railway Benefit Fund in Tom’s memory (linked below).
Our thoughts are with his family and friends today.
Rest in Peace Tom
(9th January 1937 – 29th January 2022)
