Why not come along on Saturday 29 June between 9.30am and 12.30pm and see what the Unley Repair Cafe is doing for the local community?
Bring along a broken household treasure to be fixed. Perhaps you have a chair that you can't use because it has a wobbly leg, an antique clock that has stopped, a treasured child's toy that needs to be fixed, or even a unique computer controlled tape recorder from the 1980's that no longer works. Depending on the skills of available volunteers, the Unley Repair Cafe volunteers will do their best to fix your treasure free of charge.
It's also a great way to meet and mingle with new people and learn about repairing and reusing household items. Share knowledge, skills, and cups of tea, and reduce landfill, save money, make friends and help create a sense of community. The services provided by the repair cafe volunteers are free, but donations are always welcome to help cover the cost of materials. If you have any skills and are willing to help, please let the organisers know.
Tea, coffee and a selection of homemade treats are available for a gold coin donation. Children are welcome, accompanied by an adult, to help with repairs, learn new skills, and get involved. There is also an area with books and activities for kids, including knitting and sewing. You can follow the Unley Repair Cafe on Facebook.
The Clarence Park Community Centre Food Co-op will be operating at the same time and have a produce swap table while the repair cafe is open.
