Repair Café Sydney North was declared officially open by Lane Cove Mayor Pam Palmer at our new venue on 180 Longueville Road on Feb 11. It was indeed a very special occasion with Mayor Palmer bringing along her mayoral chain for fixing! We appreciate deeply the Mayor’s trust in the skills of our repairer Glenda Hoy. And Glenda got it fixed!!
Photos below showed Glenda hard at work fixing the Mayoral chain and a triumphant Glenda proudly showing the fixed precious item Mayor Palmer had so graciously brought along for repair.

With the recent gusty strong winds causing havoc, no wonder we had 4 umbrella repairs for our January 14 Repair Café Day! Above are 2 photos of successful repairs in progress and one comment from a happy owner:
“It is a tricky job. I actually did not think it was capable of fixing but Lee made magic. He applied lubricant on the different parts and hey presto, it is as good as new again. I used it when I went home in the strong wind and it was working very well. I also learnt from Lee how to gradually open it – even if the mechanism gets stuck somewhere. So, thank you v much Lee. Where else would I learn this?”
BROKEN ITEMS we fix for FREE includes: jewellery, ceramics, shoes, toys, clothes, bags, household battery operated items, sharpening knives, secateurs, pruning tools.
