The Latest From Project Lyttelton

Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to never miss out on what is going on.

Repair cafe is go! So you can get your broken things repaired for next to nothing, just a koha or kai contribution.

Sun March 11th 12 - 4pm

40 Winchester Street

Zips, rips, electronics, toys, motors, cables, lamps, cups, shoes, I could go on, but you get the point. If you can carry it in, we'll assess it and give it a go, or advise.

  • Do you have things you need fixed? (What are they?)

  • Can you offer any skills to help this event?

You can do both and all after the Farmers Market and before 'Port Noise' festival starts. Please let the Time Bank know if you think you have some time to offer, even if it's hanging out to learn some fixing skills and to log repairs. We'll keep you local legends well fed on the day. Help support sustainability, save you and your Lyttel people money, and keep useful things out of landfill. If you on facebook you can support this event by visiting our Repair Cafe facebook event page and registering your interest, or intent to attend. You can also send messages from there.


It's on again! Can we beat our 50kg rubbish collection from last time?

Help pick up that rubbish you see laying in all the corners of Lyttelton/ Ōhinehou's CBD. Why? Because we love our little town, and it's bays.

- WIN Prizes - Help the environment and enjoy the results

- Meet your locals in a shared task

- Stop litter from entering our bays and oceans

- Earn Time Bank credit (for TB members) *

Starts at 10:30am Meet behind the Lyttelton Coffee Co. (Loons carpark) to collect your tools for the job. We'll have a trailer for dumping there.

Finish around 11.45am, or whenever you've filled a bag, and enjoy a light refreshment.

For some friendly competition we'll be weighing in your bags to see who really goes the extra mile to give you the opportunity to win vouchers for most rubbish collected thanks to our own 'Garage Sale'. * Let the kids turn someone's trash, into their treasure, and help protect our local environment at the same time.

We'll be providing the gloves, bags, tools to collect the trash, and facilitate the dumping of all that rubbish. Thanks to the Christchurch City Council, they'll be waiving our dumping fees, so lets make this is big haul!

* Prizes and Earnings: 4 x $5 Garage Sale Treasure vouchers 2 x $10 Garage Sale Treasure vouchers
