April starts tomorrow with the Little Day Out here at the Mt Eden Village Centre. Don’t miss it!
We also have the Repair Cafe this Sunday 2 April from 3.00pm to 6.00pm as part of the Albert-Eden & Puketāpapa Eco Festival. With a multitude of sewing experts, electricians, computer technicians, woodwork specialists and general handy folk, they are ready to restore your treasured items back to full use. The Cafe is organised by the Chinese Conservation Education Trust to reduce landfill waste. Items need to be light enough to carry in your hands and the Trust asks that you arrive by 5.30pm as the Cafe closes promptly at 6.00pm.
