We love mixing and mingling with our visitors every month at the Melbourne Repair Cafe. It’s what we’re all about. The need to repair something brings people in to find a fixer, and the enjoyment of connecting with a fun and friendly bunch keeps people around for a coffee and a chat.
We wanted to help our visitors feel welcome, to know who to ask for advice among a busy crowd. And you know, after a month has passed, it can be hard to remember who was who when you come back for a second visit.
You wanna go where everybody knows your name!
Well done Maddie and team! We’re absolutely thrilled with our new badges!
