Woodend Repair Cafe

Can we fix it?... Yes, we can! 
Woodend Repair Café is back for 2019, and running in conjunction with the Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival.

Woodend Repair Café launched in 2018 with the aim of reducing the number of items thrown away in our community by helping each other repair them. Woodend Repair Café is open every Farmer's Market day (first Saturday of the month) and operates out of the Undercroft at the Woodend Neighbourhood House.
What's on the menu at the Woodend Repair Café you ask? Everything from bicycles, to wooden furniture, small mechanical items, computers, clothing, and teddy bears needing some mending!

So, don’t throw away that jumper with a tear or that chair with the wobbly leg; join our skilled volunteers who can teach you how to fix broken household items. Come along and join in on the fix-it fun even if you don’t think you have anything to repair at the time – anyone is welcome to drop in and stay for a cuppa. Woodend Repair Café services are free, but donations are welcomed to help cover costs.

Have you got a skill to share? We’d love to hear from you! Call the Woodend Neighbourhood House on 5427 1845.
