Maple Ridge hosts last Repair Cafe of the year

The Nov. 19 event by the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society is completely free

Any locals with broken household items are encouraged to bring them to the next Repair Cafe event, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Maple Ridge Seniors’ Activity Centre.

These monthly Repair Cafe events are a chance for people to get assistance from experienced volunteers who will help attendees fix a wide variety of broken or damaged items, ranging from bicycles to picture frames. And best of all, it is completely free to get an item repaired.

With all of the various supplies and spare parts being provided by the Ridge Meadows Recycling Society, the only thing that participants need to bring with them is their damaged items.
