A group of Lane Cove residents have initiated a Repair Cafe to help address the growing amount of useable items going to landfill. The volunteers want to pass on practical skills and experience to others to ensure that things are used for longer, whilst also showing how satisfying, fun, and often easy, it can be to repair something.
Volunteers will help you fix the following: jewellery, ceramics, shoes, toys, clothes, zips, bags, as well as sharpening kitchen knives, secateurs and pruning tools; small woodwork repairs, household battery-operated items.
The Lane Cove Repair Cafe is located in the Living and Learning Centre, 180 Longueville Road, Lane Cove. It’s open the first two Sundays of the month from 2pm to 4pm.
It was inspired by the worldwide social enterprise initiative repaircafesydneynorth.net
