Repair Options in Nelson Tasman

Don't throw it, repair it! This is a list of professional repairers in the Nelson Tasman region, as well as other repair resources. Updated 25 Sept 2022.

You can come along to our Repair Cafe for small repairs, or volunteer with us if you like to repair things. The Repair Cafe is usually held 10am-1pm on the 3rd Saturday of each month, February to November, in the Buzz Room, at the Habitat Hub (Restore), 166 Tahunanui Drive, Nelson. For updates, see Events or Like us on Facebook.

  • This is great. Thanks Julie Evans 

    How about making a printable version of the list  on Google Docs? 

    A doc version  can be easily updated and downloaded. The link to it could be added to this resource.

    • Ann, thank you for your comment, we are working on allowing changes to be submitted.  We are providing a printed version at the Repair Cafes and are aiming to have a web based version that will allow changes to be proposed, for the public to access.  I agree we need to get this out there as a resource and are also talking to NCC.  It is a subset of a larger resource that contains options for reuse and recycling of all goods.

Share materials that enable us to fulfill our purpose of weaving individuals, households, civil society organisations, businesses, councils and iwi together around urgent, strategic action on climate change in the Nelson-Tasman region. 

These may include both resources created by  NTCF participants and also external material. They may be works of art, books, papers, videos, podcasts, webinars, weblinks etc.

Resources that are primarily of interest at the group level should be posted in the Project Documents of the  relevant group.   

When you share a resource here, please make your write-up interesting and relevant to audiences beyond our NTCF membership. This is important because the resources posted here appear in a feed on the public front page of our website. 

Please choose a category (NTCF-Core, NTCF-General or External) and use tags when you add a new resource. Choose the EXTERNAL category for any resource that was not created by members of the Forum.

If your resource  involves uploading a file, please be aware that the size limit is 7mb.
