Welcome to the website for the BitFIXit computer repairs workshop!
If you have a problem with your computer that you need our help with, simply bring your machine along and we will resolve them for you on the day, or as soon as possible, whichever comes first. If it is a hardware issue, we will tell you precisely what part you need that will fix the problem, source the most cost-effective part available, and then install it for you. If you need any software for your computer, we recommend various free and legal software applications that we will assist you in installing and configuring to your needs.
COVID-19 UPDATE – Saturday 3rd April 2021
In response to recent news of lockdown restrictions being eased throughout England, with non-essential stores and other places being allowed to re-open on Monday 12th April, we have made the decision to resume holding computer repairs workshops at Abbeyfield Park House, with sessions starting on Saturday 17th April.
To protect and safety and wellbeing of volunteers and members of the community, we will introduce precautions and other measures at our workshops including;
- Provision of hand sanitiser for volunteers and clients to use during sessions;
- Ensuring that volunteers and clients wear face coverings at all times;
- Making sure that tables and chairs are spread out in the community room to ensure social distancing;
- Keeping work surfaces clean with disinfectant and other cleaning products;
- Using the community room entrance from the park as a kiosk for booking in and checking out computer repairs. This is a new measure that we are looking to introduce as a way to help minimise the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19.
We may need to make amendments to the above precautions as the new sessions progress, so that we can protect the safety and wellbeing of volunteers and the wider community.
Thank you to all for your ongoing support during this difficult time. We look forward to supporting our local communities with computer repairs again, so we hope to see you again soon!
