Last weekend saw our last Repair session for 2018. And as always, our friendly repair group managed to fix and mend a few different items (bikes, cloths, an outdoor umbrella!).
We want to thank the wonderful group of volunteers who run, support, promote and fix things at the Richmond Repair Corner. Thank you for facilitating a wonderful program that minimises waste and creates opportunities for people in our community to meet and learn new skills.
We're looking forward to more repair session in 2019!Richmond Repair Corner reached new heights in 2018. Over 243 kg of household items that would have otherwise ended up in landfill! That's 107 separate items!
Here's some pics from our final session for 2018 yesterday. Our new bike fixer, James, had three bikes to work on. Karin restored shoes and, get this, a leather jacket! Tim helped untangle the maze of string inside an outdoor umbrella, whose owners were able to complete the mend at home. Kristian had his head down with an assortment of electronic items, and Helen taught a cardigan owner how to darn!
Massive thanks to all our volunteers over 2018. We look forward to seeing you on the last Sunday of February, 2019. ... See MoreSee Less
