The November 2020 Gawler Repair Cafe had to be cancelled due to the pandemic lockdown, but we have now rescheduled for Sat 12 December. Further details below.

Repair Cafes provide a free meeting space where community members can work with skilled volunteers to repair items that would otherwise go to waste. Services are provided free of charge by volunteers but customers can choose to make a small donation to support the service if they wish. We have a Covid Safe Plan in place and will ensure that all social distancing and PPE requirements are adhered to on the day. 

A few basics:

– Only one item per person, per appointment
– All repairs are conducted at the discretion of the repairer; if the repairer isn’t comfortable with conducting the repair, it won’t be undertaken.
– There are some items it isn’t possible to repair at the café e.g. microwave ovens and TVs retain charge and it is dangerous to attempt to repair them.
– Our repairers are skilled volunteers. They will try their best to fix your item but there are no guarantees.

Date: Sat 12 December 2020
