Horsham Repair Café
The Horsham Repair Café takes place on the last Saturday every month, 10am to 2.30pm at the United Reformed Church as part of Sussex Green Hub.
Horsham Repair Café – booking essential
Do you have a small unusable lamp or broken toaster in the garage that you keep meaning to take to the Waste Recycling centre? Often household items may have almost nothing wrong with them, and they could get a new lease of life after a simple repair, so please don’t bin them just yet!
Bring any small electrical item that doesn’t work or textile repair to the café and we will do our best to mend it. If you fancy learning how to fix it as well, our volunteers are happy to talk through what they are doing. You may go away with a fixed item and a new skill!
NB: If you live outside of Horsham, scroll to the bottom of the page to learn about repair cafes in other areas.
In order that people are seen on time, we are now offering repairs by appointment, please book a slot below.

NB: We are no longer offering laptop/computer or mobile phone repairs.
We have a team of sewing volunteers to help you mend a range of clothing items.
Our bike repair service includes an initial assessment, consultation, and advice regarding bicycle related problems.
Meet some of the Team
Andrew joined the repair cafe in 2019 and as a retired System Engineer enjoys the challenge of fixing any domestic appliances whether the problem is electrical or mechanical.
Anna started sewing when she was 4 and picked up knitting, crocheting, weaving and spinning yarn along the way. She doesn’t like throwing anything away & has a chest of scrap fabric to prove it.
Earl loves all things bikes and joined the Repair Café in 2023. He does general bicycle check-ups, maintenance and repairs.

There isn’t a sewing challenge Ros won’t tackle! She has a particular love of restoring Teddy Bears and is a dab hand at fixing pottery too!
