Newtown Tool Library Presents Repair Café

Newtown Tool Library Presents…… Repair Café

Do you have something that needs fixing but you're not sure how to do it yourself? Bring it down to the next Newtown Tool Library Repair Café! There will be a selection of skilled volunteers on hand to help and show you how to mend, repair, improve, fix, tune, glue or re-wire your loved item.

Held at the Newtown Community and Cultural Centre on Saturday 8th July from 11am until 2pm you can come and learn how to make it good again so you don't have to throw it away!

“I had broken the door hinge on the microwave that belonged to my landlord, and I wouldn't have been able to afford to fix it, or know where to look, but we sorted it out at the repair cafe which was a huge relief." - A happy repair cafe participant.

Items to bring include, but are not limited to: clothing, jewellery, electrical, kitchenware, toys, accessories, furniture and musical instruments. Information about joining the Newtown Tool Library will also be on hand and delicious baked goods including coffee/tea will be available from the Koha Kitchen.
