Feilding Repair Café

The Feilding Repair CAFÉ was born out of the desire to raise awareness about our throw-away wasteful culture and to give the community an easy, pleasurable, grass roots driven option of mending all sorts of bits and bobs rather than throwing them away to our rapidly filling landfill and all over a cuppa tea, good korero and some yummy kai.

With the support of the Feilding Menzshed, the Manawatu District Council and the Environment Network Manawatu the inaugural café was held on Saturday March 11, 2023, at the Caledonian Hall - the project has been very successful and will continue in 2024.

We have a sound team of problem-solving skilled volunteers who will assess your item and help begin its mending journey. Our team includes - stitchers, wood workers, metal fixers, jewellers, electrical item fixers, clock fixers,  bike, computer and book fixers and a sewing machine mechanic. We will publish in Facebook and Neighbourly,  on the Friday prior to the event, the list of the possible repair types available  Bring your item along for assessment have a chat, share some kai and begin the mending journey.
