Oceanside Repair Cafe

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

A Repair Cafe is coming to Qualicum Beach! The Oceanside Repair Café is a neighbourhood event where people can bring their broken or damaged goods and local residents with a knack for repairing will help them get their items fixed, for free.

Volunteering their skills are repairers who know how to fix small appliances, such as coffee makers, toasters, vacuums, blenders; small electronics that are repairable; computers, ipads, phones; lamps; small furniture such as wobbly chairs; and bicycles. The Repair Cafe will also have people on hand who can mend clothing and sharpen knives. Rule of thumb: bring what you can carry. Those who attend are encouraged to bring one item only, so that repair volunteers can help as many people as possible. If there is time, a second item may be fixed once others have had their turn. Free coffee, tea and baked goods served all day!
