The monthly Repair Café is back to help you get your small broken items fixed, instead of being tossed in the landfill.

Hosted by the Rotary Club of Port Coquitlam Centennial, the café runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the City of Port Coquitlam’s public works yard (1737 Broadway St.) next to Firehall 1.
