Repair Cafe hosts school holiday Family Day for toy and bike repair

The Repair Café will open on Friday 9 April for Family Day all geared up to fix your kid’s broken toys as well as their battered bikes.

The Repair Café has already successfully fixed a number of toys and bikes since we opened our doors back in August last year, but we are keen to improve our skills and make sure that broken toys and bikes live to see another day.

Our friendly volunteers will be available from 9am to 12pm to inspect damaged or worn toys and do a check up on your child’s bike. Moruya Cycles has offered to donate a kids’ bike that needs a little attention, but once fixed we’ll be offering it for sale at a very reasonable price.

“Families can bring their toys and bikes along for repair and have morning tea while they wait,” says Repair Café Committee Chair Deb Stevenson. “Kids will also have the opportunity to watch volunteers work and learn some handy repair skills.”

The Repair Café services are free-of-charge, but any donations are gratefully accepted and go towards tools and parts. “Come and enjoy a cuppa and a snack while learning how to fix that favourite doll or that annoying squeaky bike pedal,” Deb says.

The Repair Café operates from the Red Door Hall, St Johns Church, Page Street, Moruya. More information is available from Deb Stevenson on 0417 835 169 or email or check the SHASA website at
