The City of Whittlesea’s first repair café is now open.
Located at Mernda Community House, the Mernda Repair Café will be open monthly for residents to come and have their faulty or broken items fixed.
Run by Mernda Community House, Whittlesea Community Connections and the City of Whittlesea, the repair cafe will be staffed by skilled volunteers from the community.
What type of items can be repaired?
A range of repairers will be available at each session with skills in repairing items including bikes, small electrical items, clothing and jewellery.
The repair café is located at Mernda Community House, 2 Heals Road, Mernda.
Supporting repair cafes such as this is just one way the City of Whittlesea are helping our community tackle waste and is one of the first items to be actioned as part of our Rethinking Waste Plan 2021-2030.
