Dan brought back some speakers that he fixed at a previous event and had further problems with. After a chat with Mattia they worked out what needed to be done and Dan used the soldering iron to make the repair.IMG_5053

  1. Your May Café looks fabulous. Is there anyone who might be willing to provide an opinion on a problem. I’m trying to be self-reliant with my mobile.

    I need to unlock my Nokia C1-01. Two shops quoted £18.00 plus a 48 hours wait. I see there are free unlock codes online. Can anyone recommend a free code source that has worked for them?

    Thanks in advance
