The Hut Community Centre is once again running The Repair Cafe on Saturday 2nd March between 10am – 2pm at The Community Shed.

The Repair Cafe is a pop up event that invites people of all backgrounds to get household items repaired by volunteer repair experts for free. The Repair Cafe is a place for the community to come together, to recognise and share skills and to reduce unnecessary household waste. Volunteer repair expert will take time to explain the repair process to participants, helping them to learn new skills and understand the benefits or repairing.

The event is an opportunity for people who don’t have tools, repair skills or can’t afford the cost of repair and replacement to fix broken items. Also the event aims to reduce waste that would eventually end up in landfill.

Entertainment will be provided by Dan Burt and coffee and refreshments will also be available on the day.

The Huut Community Centre has volunteer repair experts confirmed who can work with community members to repair wooden items, small machines like whipper snippers or lawn mowers, bicycles, patching of clothes and darning of woollen items. Community members should bring down their items for repair and any specific materials they might need to repair their particular item (such as matching wood or yarn). General materials will be available. Repair experts will include new and existing Hut skilled in general maintenance, small machines, woodwork, clothing repair and knitting.
