Imagine a place where you can bring your broken toasters, wobbly tables, or even a torn favourite shirt, and get them fixed up. That’s what these folks do. They’re all about reducing waste and teaching us how to fix things ourselves. It’s a great way to save money and help our planet.

Nestled in the Addison Road Workshops (SA12 6HZ), the Port Talbot Repair Cafe is where volunteers will breathe new life into your broken items. From kitchen appliances to clothing and bicycles, they’re equipped to fix a wide range of items. And the best part? It’s completely free, though donations are welcome to support this wonderful initiative.

Mark your calendars for the opening day on Saturday, 13th January, from 10 am to 12 pm. Bring along anything that needs fixing, or just drop by to chat and see the magic happen. The welcoming team, led by Rhys Clement, is enthusiastic about meeting and helping you. The next workshop will then be held on Saturday 10th February and then continue on the 2nd Saturday of the month at the same times.

The Port Talbot Repair Cafe is more than a repair hub; it’s a community space for all of us to connect, support each other, and strengthen our local bonds. It’s where waste reduction, cost-saving, and community spirit come together beautifully.
