Ngaio Repair Café
Ngaio Union Church
Ngaio Union Church, Corner of Kenya Street and Crofton Road, Ngaio, 6035 Wellington
Third Saturday of the month, March to November, 10am - 1pm
Ngaio Repair Café, organised in and by Ngaio Union Church, is part of the worldwide Repair Café movement to cut down waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our local volunteer repairers will look at and try to fix all sorts of household gear: wooden, metal, electrical, electronic, pottery, computer, fabric, toys, clothing, beads, cardboard – as long as it’s small enough for you to bring. One of our volunteers is a guitar repairer who can mend and tune any fretted instruments. Another has an oilstone and will sharpen knives. While you wait to have your item looked at, tea and coffee and cold drink are provided. Children with care-givers are welcome. We have some basic materials on site but if your broken thing needs specific parts (e.g. zip, plug) please bring those along. It’s all free but a gold coin koha is appreciated to help local community need. We open each third Saturday of the month beginning March and finishing November.
