We were seriously busy at our first Repair Café of the year on 12th February at St Peter’s Church Chailey,  tackling no less than 79 repairs in 3 hours, including all the usual suspects – a much loved doll, some beautiful glass ornaments, clocks, hoovers, food processors, some small items of furniture, damaged clothing,  radios and cd players, broken ceramics and, of course, a singing  teddy bear!!


As we head into Spring, we’ll now start seeing  your cycles which have been loitering in sheds and need some attention as well as mowers and garden tools which need sharpening  – our   state of the art sharpening machine will soon  sort them  out as  well as your kitchen  knives and workshop  tools!


Don’t forget that we  also  have an IT team who will not only get your laptop or iPad working properly again  but will also spend time showing you how to use it if you’ve got stuck.


Our 2022 dates are easy to remember  – we are normally  open every 2nd Saturday of each month between 10am – 1pm. Our new 2022 posters and flyers with all our 2022 dates are now available at the Café, so you won’t forget!


Chailey Repair Café is part of a  world-wide movement where volunteer experts repair things free of charge – although a donation towards running costs is invited. Anyone can bring along broken items or clothing needing repair from home, and have a cuppa and a cake while they wait!


You’ll find us at St Peter’s Church, Chailey on the A275 at Chailey Green normally on the second Saturday   of each month (12 Mar, 9 April, 14 May and so on….) between 1000hrs and 1300hrs where we have a full Café service including our legendary cakes!


Contact  us at and we’ll see what we can do to help.


See you very soon!!
