Tuesday 20th July
The first Riverside repair cafe took place on Tuesday at the Wyndham St Diner.
Dave Hann from http://www.motorlegs.com/ was on hand giving out repairs and advice to cyclists.
A number of items were brought in for review and repair.
Several power tools were given new lease of life. A mobile phone was brought in needing a new digitiser. A TV, that needed a new driver board, unfortunately that was uneconomic to repair. A laptop was brought back to life. And a set of stereo headphones was revamped.
Opehlia https://www.opheliadossantos.com/ was on hand to show how to recycle or rework clothing.
Several items were donated, after repair, to Benthyg https://borrow.benthyg.org/ where you can borrow a whole host of things.
On hand was support from https://repaircafewales.org/ – then next event in Riverside takes place on 21st September in Brunel St.
Grant would like to thank all those ‘fixers’ who gave their time and expertise.
