Repair Cafe

Repair Cafe

Located at the Port Fairy Community House, visitors are given the opportunity to bring their broken item from home. Together with the volunteer ‘fixer’, they start making their repairs. It’s an ongoing learning process fostering concepts of sustainability, community and skill-sharing. 10am – 1pm in our Outdoor Room. See Repair Cafe Facebook Page for more details.

3rd Saturday or the month (except Jan & Dec)

FREE service

Repair Cafes bring many benefits: they extend the life of items that would otherwise end up in landfill, they pass on valuable fixing skills and knowledge i.e. FIY (fix-it-yourself), they are a great antidote to the ‘throw-away society’ way of thinking, and they are fabulous social and networking events.
