At BitFIXit, we support local communities by making computer repairs and software services like malware removal and system optimisations accessible to members of the public that otherwise could not afford the services of computer repair shops. From this year, we are also participating at Repair Cafe Sheffield, a repair cafe based at Heeley City Farm, which is situated to the south of the city centre of Sheffield.
On the last Saturday of every alternate month from January, members of the public bring all kinds of everyday items to the Repair Cafe, ranging from clothes, coats and accessories, to electrical items such as kettles, toasters and vacuum cleaners, and even to more interesting items like model fairground rides and sewing machines. While our services are more specific to computer hardware and repairs, they fit into the overall theme of ensuring that everyday items are kept in use and thus, reduce how much of the items are discarded and consigned to landfill sites.
For the rest of this year, the Repair Cafe takes place from 10am – 4pm on the following Saturdays;
- 27th May
- 29th July
- 30th September
- 25th November
Please feel free to join us at the Repair Sheffield in Heeley City Farm on the above dates, whether if you have problems with your computer (or any other item!) that you need our help with, or other otherwise simply want to have a friendly general chat with us.
