Dacombes goes green(er) on its zero carbon journey

Wimborne’s oldest independent home electronics store, Dacombes (https://www.dacombesofwimborne.com/), is now harnessing the newest technology, with solar energy powering its extensive array of domestic appliances and home cinemas in its Dorset showroom. Matt Renaut, Dacombes’ Managing Director, noted the significant electricity demand of their operations, likening it to ‘three kettles on the boil all day long.’ 

Upcoming events

Wimborne Repair Cafe

Wimborne Repair Café is all about fixing things. A place to bring along your items in need of repair that would otherwise be wasted.

The Repair Cafe is run by the community, for the community.

This event not only provides repair services but is also a space for people to come together for a social chat and to pass on skills.


Clothing, textiles, sewing, small electrical, toys, ceramics, jewellery, small furniture and bicycles. Our team of volunteer fixers are on hand to give your items a new lease of life.
