A new Repair Cafe is opening on Sunday 29 November from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, at the Tuggeranong Community Centre 245 Cowlishaw St Greenway.

If you haven’t already heard of them, repair cafes are free meeting places, with one big focus – repairing things.

The event is being run by Tuggeranong SEE-Change, a grassroots sustainability organisation based in Canberra. They are encouraging everyone to look in their cupboards, drawers and shed to find anything that is broken or in need of repair, and bring it along.

Volunteer fixers will be available for bicycles, clothing, textiles/material furnishings, soft plush toys, handbags and backpacks, broken electrical items, Christmas lights, garden solar lights, and knife/garden tool sharpening (max 2 knives).

There are at least three other repair ventures around Canberra, but this will be the first in Tuggeranong. If successful, SEE-Change will be looking to foster cafes in Woden and Weston-Creek.
