A list of all the repairs achieved during our June day at the Bevy, in Tom’s beautiful handwriting.
Dan changes the fuse on Bab’s hairdryer
and also helps Alan diagnose the problem with a Mitre saw, of which the switch component is broken. Attempts are made to glue the broken part, but as it is very small and the glue not strong enough, a new component will need to be sourced before it can be fixed.
Success is achieved with other electrical goods. Alan fixes the loose head and plug on Francis’ lamp.Shirley helps Hannah mend her frayed sofa cushions and finds time to darn a hole in her jumper.
With help from Tom, Natalia shortens and hems the sleeves on a cardigan using visible herring bone stitch.Ruth darns a Christmas jumper and mends the waistband on her vintage skirt,whilst Ali adds a new wooden foot to her sewing box.Ali modifies another of Betty’s chairs to make it easier for her to sit on, by shortening the legs. All in all, a good day of repairs at the Bevy.
