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.
