With the recent gusty strong winds causing havoc, no wonder we had 4 umbrella repairs for our January 14 Repair Café Day! Above are 2 photos of successful repairs in progress and one comment from a happy owner:

It is a tricky job. I actually did not think it was capable of fixing but Lee made magic. He applied lubricant on the different parts and hey presto, it is as good as new again. I used it when I went home in the strong wind and it was working very well. I also learnt from Lee how to gradually open it – even if the mechanism gets stuck somewhere. So, thank you v much Lee. Where else would I learn this?”

BROKEN ITEMS we fix for FREE includes: jewellery, ceramics, shoes, toys, clothes, bags, household battery operated items, sharpening knives, secateurs, pruning tools.
