Grey Lynn 2030 is proud to present its first Repair Cafe on Saturday 18th Feb at St Columba Hall 10am – 2pm.
Repair Cafe is a concept that came out of The Netherlands in 2009 and is about repairing items rather than discarding them as well as creating community spirit by having everyone come together for a repair day where people can have their items fixed for free and learn how to repair them if they are interested.
There have been a few Repair cafe events around Auckland – Pt Chev and Bayswater so far and there are several in the planning in various suburbs as well. Some WMIF funding has just been awarded to ANCAD in cooperation with GAPO to put some shared resources in place. In short this is a growing movement.
Come along on the day to this event and bring anything that needs repairing!
