There was double success for a volunteer at the latest Royston Repair Cafe.
The owner of a lamp and computerised game was delighted after seeing her items repaired at the cafe in the Market Hill Rooms on Sunday.
Dermot Byrne – co-founder of the repair cafe and an ever-present repairer at the event which started more than a year ago – restored the battleship game and put the lamp back into one piece.
The repair cafe team also assessed a food mixer and toaster, two flat-screen televisions, a motorised golf trolley, two cameras and a leather bag that needed sewing.
Out of a total of 27 items presented, the repairers fixed 13 and are still working on three.
Some members of the team will be at the Open Secrets event at Royston Heath on Sunday, June 7.
