If Time can publicise its 100 most influential people, Cleo its 50 eligible bachelors and Forbes its rich list, we think it’s time for Repair Cafe Albury-Wodonga to publish its 10 ‘most popular’. On the eve of our fourth birthday we’re revealing everything from our most popular item and repairer to best cake. Drum roll, here we go:
If you follow our Facebook page you’ll see we’re forever innovating and dreaming up new ideas. The lawnmower session on Saturday 2 November is no exception – we’ll kick off at 10.15am with a half hour lawnmower maintenance demo, showing how to clean air filters, check spark plugs and broken leads, then from 10.45am Wolfgang and Bill will service mower blades. Please remove and clean blades before arrival, noting blades don’t usually require sharpening but might need nicks removed, straightening and balancing.
On 2nd November we’re also featuring our device help desk to trouble-shoot problems with mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
Our Repair Cafe is a community-run initiative open the first Saturday of every month (except January) and proudly supported by Halve Waste. For more information see ecoportal.net.au or facebook.com/repaircafeaw.
