Kingston upon Thames
Transition Town Kingston's Repair Cafe is part of an international network of neighbourhood repair cafes that promote repair as an alternative to throwing things away. TTK organises a Repair Café on the first Saturday morning of every month, from 10.30am to 1.00pm in Kingston Library's community room.
Visitors can bring their broken items to fix on the spot with the help of voluntary repairers - please read the House Rules for volunteers and visitors and our Guidance for Visitors (where we post updates about what repairs we can currently offer and how to book a repair slot) before coming along. If we can't fix your item or advise you, please see our list of recommended repair shops and other places that may be able to help.
Volunteering for Repair Cafe: please read the House Rules, the Repair Cafe Manual, guidelines for working safely and other useful information on our page for volunteers; if you would then be happy to help with fixing things, please contact us, outlining in the first instance what kind of repairs you could do and your availability, and letting us have your contact details for further updates and information.
Thank you to Kingston Library for the use of its lovely community space, to John Lewis Kingston for the seed-funding that enabled us to start this project, to TTK for its support, to the many other individuals and organisations that have helped and advised us, and most recently (June 2023) to Kingston Council's Community Resilience Fund.
