The Repair Shop – 28 April 2021 – 28/4/2021 – Wednesday – BBC

Series 8 Episode 3 of 14

Jay Blades and the team bring four treasured family heirlooms, and the memories they hold, back to life.

Metal expert Dominic Chinea faces the heavy-duty task of repairing a seized-up old roundabout that reminds its owner Stella of her three daughters’ childhoods. Sadly, Stella’s middle daughter Emma died in 2016, leaving two young children behind. Dom has the tough task of getting the old roundabout revived and revolving once again, in time for Stella and her grandchildren’s return to the barn.

Master saddler Suzie Fletcher is excited to tackle a mid-19th century ladies’ side saddle bought in Texas by owner Sara. Having lived a cowboy lifestyle in her youth, Sara is surprised to learn that Suzie also spent time on ranches. The bond formed between the two ladies makes this a very special repair for both Suzie and Sara.

Wood expert Will is amazed when a First World War dominoes set, thought to have been played during the Christmas truce of 1914, arrives at the barn. Owner Ben believes the dominoes played a part in this symbolic moment of peace in an otherwise pitiless war.

And toy restorers Julie and Amanda join forces with mechanical maestro Steve Fletcher to fix a broken teddy bear that was gifted to an abandoned girl from Hong Kong when she arrived in the UK to meet her adoptive family for the first time.
