We offer a repair service for portable household items of a mechanical, electrical or ceramic nature, tool sharpening and simple sewing and clothing repairs. We can also advise on repair options for wooden furniture, providing it is hand-portable and you can transport it to Marden Links Hub yourself.
To control the number of people arriving together outside the hub, advance booking is essential.
The first slot is from 10.00 to 10:30 and the last from 12 noon to 12:30pm. We need to complete all repairs by 12:30, as we will need half an hour to clear and clean up.
Hygiene. Items should be cleaned as far as possible. Clothing items must be washed or dry-cleaned before you bring them to us.
Please bring your item to our reception desk first. We will then allocate it to the most appropriate repairer.
There will be a small café operating in the hub, and outside if the weather is nice. You can wait here and enjoy refreshments if you wish or you may leave and we will contact you by phone when your item is ready for collection. Provided the repairer also consents, you may sit with the repairer while the item is being examined and repaired.
If you leave the hub, please keep your mobile phone with you and switched on, as the repairer may need to speak to you about your item. After repair, or if your item cannot be repaired, we will ‘phone you, so you can collect it from the hall.
Items must be collected by 12.30pm as we need to clear up the hub by 1pm.
Marden Repair Café does not charge a fee for either repairs or refreshments, but you can leave a donation towards our running costs which we will gratefully accept.
