Do you have something in need of mending or repair?
Come along to Blenheim's Repair Cafe.
Every 4th Saturday of the month
at Johns' Kitchen
2 Redwood St
Bring clothing/textiles, bicycles, electrical appliances, mobile phones, book repairs, knife sharpening, and furniture/wooden objects to be repaired.
The Repair Cafe was officially opened on Saturday February 26 by Mayor John Leggett and Bishop Steve Maina.
The event was covered by the Marlborough Express.
A Blenheim Nativity Church initiative, the Repair Café is a free pop-up event for anyone to bring items in for repair.
The Marlborough community faces a challenge to deal with waste in ways that reduced what we send to landfill and protects the environment for future generations. It is predicted that Marlborough’s current landfill facility will be full by 2047 and it is imperative we find a way to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose now.
People from our local community volunteer their time to fix old items for the community for free, with the aim of reducing waste, helping the environment and saving people money.
We are looking for fix it people, welcomers and hospitality helpers. If you can help, please
