Computer repairs at Abbeyfield

Computer repair cafe is moving to Abbeyfield House

The computer cafe (BitFixIT) is moving from Verdon Street into Abbeyfield House and expanding our work to include fixing computers for ordinary people and small businesses during the week too. We've been fixing computers for over 12 years and in that time we've helped thousands of Burngreave residents with viruses, damaged laptops, and slow computers

We've picked up some awards for our work over the years, from being a ‘point of light’ to ‘digital champions’ – but the best rewards are when people tell us that we've helped get a whole family back on the internet. Nowadays the internet isn't a luxury, it's a necessity and when something happens to knock us off it the consequences can be drastic. Job seeking, bargain hunting and talking with friends and family abroad are all more difficult, expensive or downright impossible without a working internet connection and some sort of computer, laptop or phone.

That's why we've been there, every Saturday from 12-3pm for the last 12 years and we'll continue to offer that same service completely free of charge (we do ask for donations to help cover the running costs). Now we are expanding we can offer home visits and other services during the week – although we will have to charge a modest fee for this as we can't expect our volunteers to give up their weekdays as well as their Saturdays.

We'll be having a bit of a party on our opening day – Saturday 6th June – so please come down to Abbeyfield house between 12-3pm (whether your computer is working or not) and share a cup of tea and a cake with us.
