The Whāingaroa Repair Café is a free pop-up event held on the 2nd Saturday of the month. where community members can bring in their broken and damaged belongings and local volunteer experts do their best to repair them.
We believe in the power of repairing and reusing goods to create a more circular economy.
Repairing rather than buying new is a great way to take climate action in your own life – and learn new skills along the way!
By extending the lifespan of these items, we reduce waste and prevent valuable resources from ending up in landfills. In general, replacement parts will not be provided by the repairers. Any use of materials or parts such batteries, zips etc. will be supplied or paid for by the visitor and brought to event.
