BBC Two Repairs Family/Community Heirlooms for Christmas

I wondered if your community or anyone in it could benefit from the below? If you could possibly print out the attached flyers and put them on the parish noticeboard or include it in your next newsletter to get the word out about our Christmas special, we would really appreciate it.

BBC2’s The Repair Shop are seeking damaged family and community heirlooms for their second series and objects that have special significance during Christmas time for their upcoming Christmas special. The series follows a team of passionate and skilled crafts people who restore damaged objects of sentimental value. The experts work side by side in beautiful barn nestled deep in the British countryside as they fix, repair and breathe new life into objects brought in by members of the public. The experts are drawn from different disciplines such as furniture repairers, metal workers, mechanics, ceramicists, clock makers, picture conservationists, and up-cyclers, restorers and fabricators of every ilk.

A ragged teddy bear given to a grandparent decades ago, a damaged sleigh that once decorated the town square, a favourite train set a parent would like to pass on to their child Christmas morning, anything of personal sentimental value or importance to a community can be repaired and preserved for generations to come.

The team is especially eager to restore a sleigh that could decorate a town at Christmas time.

If you have a precious object you’d like repaired please email repair or call 01273 224829

If you could share our info with any friends, family, or social media that may be interested we’d be very grateful. Best wishes and thank you for your time.

Many thanks,
