Repair Revolution – Frankton Repair Cafe

October 15, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

frankton repair cafe wastebusters

Wastebusters’ Repair Revolution is back for Spring 2023 and Whakatipu’s first event is kicking off in Frankton, at Te Atamira on Sunday 15th October.

⚒️ Do you love stuff and hate waste?
🧵 Do you want to renew, revive, and repair your broken things to give them a new lease on life and keep them out of landfill?
🛠️ Are you looking to share or learn new skills?
Join Sustainable Queenstown and Wastebusters for this fun, FREE, feel good event!
🪛Would you like to help repair? Or help out on the day?
We’re looking for volunteer fixers of all kinds to join us. Whatever your super fixing power is (bikes, furniture, electronics, clothes, anything!), if you love repairing things and helping others learn, we would love to have you on board. If you have an idea of a short workshop to offer, let us know!
We also need some event crew legends to help on the day! Please sign up to volunteer using the following form: https://forms.gle/She7WBN2s5FSevfg6

 What can you bring along?
As we gather volunteer fixers we will be able to specify what items would be best to bring, but generally, anything that’s broken and you can manage to carry on your own is welcome!
Think clothing, small furniture, crockery, bicycles, toys and some electrical appliances. We will update this event as we get closer to the day and profile some of our volunteers and their fabulous fixing skills.

Resourceful Communities is created by Wastebusters. Sustainable Queenstown is proud to partner with Wastebusters to deliver Resourceful Communities in the Whakatipu. Repair Revolution is proudly supported by Queenstown Lakes District Council Zero Waste District Programme.
