Malney Neighbourhood Centre Fixit Cafe

Maleny Neighbourhood Centre Fixit cafe

The Maleny Fixit Cafe has operated from the Maleny Neighbourhood Centre since 22 November 2012, providing a valuable service to the region. It is based on a European style Repair Café which started in Amsterdam in 2009.

The Fixit Café operates between 9.00 AM and 2.00 PM on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. As a bonus, the Community Lunch is also available from 12.30 PM on those days.

It is a simple concept. People bring items to be repaired and they may even learn how to repair them. Repairing items, instead of dumping those treasured items, helps towards sustainability within our community. Activities undertaken include:

    • Small repairs to clothing
    • Minor repairs & adjustments for bicycles
    • sewing repairs through the fixit cafePottery wheels
    • Wooden furniture
    • Any small things – tie a leather decoration on a handbag

Please note at this time we are unable to perform any repairs on electrical equipment.

For each item, a donation to MNC is requested. Item owners may be requested to source any required parts. All work is carried out by volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a Fixit Volunteer, please leave your contact details and list of skills with the front desk.
