Come along ...

Repair Cafe Weymouth is run by volunteers. 

The team offers expert repairing skills – mechanical, electrical, electronics, carpentry, gluing, clocks, sewing, jewellery and craft – to fix your things. You sit alongside the expert repairer so you can be involved in making any necessary choices and pick up some fixing tips at the same time. Some items need replacement parts and the cafe has a stock of those regularly encountered. If your item is hard to bring in take a photo and contact us beforehand.

Date and Time

Repair Cafe events are held* on the second Saturday of every month (except in July and August), from 10:30 to 12:30.
At: Our new spacious venue The Top Club, set into the grassy banks of Louviers Road, Littlemoor,
Weymouth DT3 6AY.

There is loads of space at Top Club, free parking and a friendly cafe. It is on the number 2 bus route. See our Facebook page for more details.

In March 2024, we were awarded the accolade of the UK "Community Group of the Year 2024" by the networking site "Nextdoor". That's not just best Repair Cafe in Dorset or in the UK but the best Community Group in the whole of the UK. It's great to get recognition for repair organisations. 

Avoid the bin and save landfill

It is estimated that 35,500 items that could be reused or repaired go to Household Waste Recycling Centres every day. By repairing or re-using those items we could save £2.2 million EVERY DAY.
If we improve our approach to to repair and reuse e.g. by selling repaired items alongside new items, by 2028 we could be reusing and repairing more than 15 million items every year. That would save 930,000 tonnes of carbon emissions, equivalent to taking 189,000 cars off the road.

At our Repair Cafe, there are tools, materials and expert volunteers. We aim to do repairs that take up to 40 minutes. If it needs longer, we can advise so you can complete the repair at home or you can bring it to another event for us to finish the job. 

  • Bring broken items from home
  • Work together with specialists to make repairs
  • Lend a hand with someone else's repair job
  • Socialise
Please make a donation if you are happy with your repair so we can continue to help others.

Get involved

Join the team! Do you have a repair skill you'd like to share with Repair Cafe Weymouth? Then please get in touch.
We do need a jewellery repairer - preferably someone who can do silver soldering but that is not essential. And an IT repairer - mostly hardware issues and speeding up laptops. We are also looking for a 'do-er' with organisational and minor IT skills to join the organising team.

International scheme

We are part of a worldwide network of Repair Cafes,  registered with the international organisation We give feedback on hard-to-repair and poorly designed  for repair items to the RepairMonitor database that is used to advise manufacturers. In 2022 and 2023, we were the Repair Cafe that saw the most items for repair* in the UK.
