Repair Cafe @ First Met Church

Together with First Met Church, the North Park Neighbourhood Association is planning a Repair Cafe for Saturday, March 26, 2022 from 10am-2pm.

A repair cafe invites community members to bring broken or damaged belongings in to work together with a volunteer repair-er to fix it! Accepted items are: small appliances and electronics (nothing bigger than a microwave), small furniture, clothing, jewelry, and outdoor gear.

The Victoria Tool Library will be on site to answer questions about repairs, and to share information about their amazing organization! Did you know the Victoria Tool Library has moved closer to downtown? Find out more at https://victoriatoollibrary.org/
There will be free refreshments.

We are grateful for the support of the community to bring this event to life!

We are looking for volunteers to help out!  Do you have a knack for fixing things? Do you have a handy skill to share? Even if you aren’t, there’s still a role for you! We are seeking volunteer for the following roles:

We are asking fixers to bring any tools that they have at their disposal. We will work with you to round up any necessary tools that you need but cannot bring with you!
