The Repair Café is returning after a successful launch last year.

Energise Ōtaki is hosting another pop-up Repair Café at the Memorial Hall from 10am-1pm on Sunday July 25. It’s where people can bring items to be repaired and reused, rather than going to the landfill.

Meantime, the group is looking for people who want to help breathe new life into old items, pass on their skills and have fun in the process.

“We are looking for volunteers to help to with repairing items – especially people with electrical skills and certificate – and event assistants,” says Hannelore Wagner-Nicholls of Energise Ōtaki.

If you have the skills to fix household items, or you can help with event tasks, contact Hanne:
