    Event description

    Don’t biff it, repair it!

    Join us at the Rotorua Repair Café on Saturday 15th June, 10am – 12pm. The Rotorua Repair Café is a free pop-up event for locals to bring in broken or damaged belongings with local volunteer experts doing their best to repair them. Let’s work together to reduce waste to landfill!

    What kind of things can I register for repair?

    Clothing, Bikes, Small electrical appliances, Laptops, Chainsaw Sharpening, Soft Toys, General items

    Where is it?

    Te Rūnanga Tea House located in the Government Gardens. There are a number of free and paid parking areas within proximity and the venue is just a five-minute walk from the Arawa Street bus stop.

    How does it work?

    🛠️ Pre-register your item here

    You will receive a confirmation email and time to come.

    🛠️ Bring Parts: If your item requires parts, you need to purchase these and bring them with you to the event.

    🛠️ Attend / Sign in: you’ll be paired with one of our volunteer repairers who will work with you to identify the issue and potential solution.

    🛠️ Be Patient & Kind: our volunteers will do their best to repair or advise next steps but we can’t guarantee everything you bring in will be able to be fixed.

    What else will be there?

    A kid’s tinker table is available to keep little ones busy, colouring in and often repair demonstrations.

    Is there a cost?

    The Rotorua Repair Café is free to attend. Koha is encouraged to enable this service to continue. You can koha during registration or find our white donation bucket on the day to help us continue this service. If your item needs parts, you may be asked to purchase or supply these and re-book for repair if time allows or for a slot at the next event.

    Do you have some handy skills to share?

    We are always looking for repair volunteers and would love to have you on board. Get in touch via the email or Meghan on 027 206 9551.

    Rotorua Repair Cafe is an event run in partnership with EnviroHub BOP.
