Don’t throw it out,repair it! Eurobodalla Repair Cafe opens on Friday 28 August

SHASA, with assistance from local volunteers, is setting up a Repair Cafe in Moruya. The Eurobodalla Repair Cafe will operate at the Red Door Hall, St Johns Page St, from 10am – 2pm every Friday, starting on Friday 28 August.

Members of the community are invited to come along and bring household items which need to be repaired such as:

· Small electrical goods

· Clothing

· Furniture

Repair Cafe and SHASA volunteer Valerie Faber said “The Repair Cafe assists in seeing our possessions in a new light and appreciating their value. By repairing household items we extend their life and can save them from landfill and ultimately save money. It also shows people how repairing their broken items can be fun, as well as rewarding, because they will gain valuable practical knowledge that they can use to fix other things around the house."

“SHASA would like to thank Dave Neyle from the Bega Valley Repair Cafe for his advice and support and also the Repair Cafe Netherlands Foundation which has helped Repair Cafes to get started all over the world. The Eurobodalla Repair Cafe will be the 43rd repair Cafe in Australia ” said Kathryn Maxwell, President, SHASA.
