Mernda Neighbourhood House welcomes the community to be part of the NEW Repair Café Program for the community of Whittlesea. We hope to share the joys of Repairing and Upcycling our treasured items at home. These events will be held monthly and will be family-friendly, inclusive and cross-cultural community events.
It is a place you can bring your broken stuff to receive a new lease on life. At the repair cafe, skilled volunteers perform simple repairs on all kinds of personal items that would otherwise be thrown out. Whilst at the repair cafe you sit with the repairer while they talk you through what they're doing. It's a collaborative process so you can see how fun and easy it is to fix your own stuff at home.
These are personal items from jewellery, to your bike, a coffee machine, a fan, a scooter, a knife to be sharpened, to a hole in clothing or jumpers. Each month different repairs will be on offer dependent on the Repairers for that event.
* Note: Repairers will do their best to fix or repair items, but not this is not guaranteed.
We have a wonderful team of volunteer workers and Repairers with skills in repairs for bikes, clothes, electrical, mechanical and even furniture. Different repairers will be offered every month, so to be sure go to our booking link to check what repairs are available.
