Save the date - Repair Café What do you do with a broken toaster? Or with a jersey full of moth holes? Toss it? No way! We are organising the first Repair Café in Katikati on Saturday 19th October.
People visiting the Repair Café can bring along their broken items from home. Toasters, lamps, hair dryers, clothes, bikes, toys, crockery... anything that is broken is welcome. And we'll see if the volunteers can fix them - the Repair Café specialists almost always have the know-how.
More details to come - but in the meantime, keep Saturday 19th October free!
