Repair Cafe

Our First Repair Cafe was held on Friday 28 August 2020. The Repair Cafe is now open every Friday from 9am to 12pm (PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF TIME) at the Red Door Hall, Anglican Parish, St Johns’ Way, Moruya.

We are seeking volunteers to help run the Repair Cafe. If you have any repair skills at all, or are happy greeting people or baking a delight, please contact Thomas Schild on 0497 843 111 or Kathryn Maxwell on 0467 558 645 or email contact.shasa@gmail.com

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.

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

There will be a three step process of assessment
Step 1 – Assess whether an item is repairable;
Step 2 – Identify whether the item can be repaired by the Repair Café
Step 3 – Advise of alternative local repair options if the Repair Café is unable to repair the item

The Eurobodalla Repair Café will also provide an opportunity for members of the community to drop in and network with other people, thereby enhancing general well-being and promoting recovery in the wake of the recent bushfires and Covid-19 pandemic.

Sign up and join with more than 500 supporters from across the Eurobodalla Shire and beyond to help co-create an inspiring and resilient future for the region.
