Lets Repair More in the Eurobodalla
The SHASA Repair Cafe will be open every Friday, 9am – 12 noon until 18 December 2020, when volunteers will take a well earned 6 week break. We encourage members of the community to bring in their broken items soon, if they want repairs undertaken in 2020, as things have been quite busy.
“Every Friday we repair a diverse range of goods including clothing, electrical items, bicycles, and garden equipment. Tools, materials and specialist help are all available at the Repair Cafe. Members of the community are encouraged to stay and learn how to undertake repairs (where safe) while enjoying a cuppa and yummy food”, said Deb Stevenson, Repair Cafe Committee Chair.
“So far of the 139 items brought in, we have kept 110 goods out of landfill and they are all now back in use. Volunteer Julie Klugman has worked hard to record the details of each repair on a spreadsheet so that we have a picture of what we are repairing. The most common items were clothing (alterations and mending holes), vacuum cleaners and sewing machines” said Julie Klugman.
A special thank you to the many volunteer repairers who make themselves available each week to help our community learn how to repair and reuse their goods.
We use donations for repairs to purchase tools and parts required to undertake further repairs, and refreshments.
The Repair Cafe would also love a few more volunteer repairers.
The Repair Cafe operates at the Red Door Hall, St Johns Church, Page Street, Moruya. More information is available from Deb Stevenson on 0417 835 169 or email email@example.com
