Ricochet TV have contacted us as they are making a new television show for BBC2 called “The repair shop”; the show looks into repairing beloved and interesting possessions for people who would like to see them restored or repaired back to their original working order.  The kind of items they have come across so far have ranged from inherited pocket watches to grandfather clocks, from rocking horses to drawn carriages, even from toy cars to VW campers. They have a team of experts who cover all trades such as blacksmithing, ceramics, clockmakers, upholsterers and carpenters.

Additionally, as well as sentimental/interesting items belonging to individuals….they really love to feature and repair a few items in the show  that have a community value, something treasured or something essential to communities that has fallen into disrepair, perhaps has an interesting story and purpose to the village/town that can be restored. For example some towns, villages and communities have certain items that are important to them; such as memorial plaques,  eroded statues, snapped weather vanes, broken sun dials, cracked gargoyles,   fading carvings, or maybe the paint peeling on a local pubs swing sign.

They have asked parish councils to spread the word about their programme.  If you have a suggestion or something of interest that you’d love to be repaired you can contact Ricochet TV by email at  repair@ricochet.co.uk or call them on 01273 224800.
