R E S C H E D U L E D !

Following a couple of weekends back to back of lousy weather, we feel confident to reschedule our shoe shine event to Saturday, January 27th. Bring us your DRY footwear to the ReDirectory between 10 am and 1 pm and we’ll show them some love and care.


For our first repair event we are hosting a shoe shine! Did you know that polishing leather prolongs its lifespan? It’s true! Healthy leather is long lasting leather. Leather that has been conditioned and polished also has a more resilient surface making it less absorbent. So, by shining your shoes you can most certainly help to keep your feet warm and dry during these wet months on Galiano. Bring us your DRY shoes or boots at the ReDirectory on Saturday, January 13th from 10 am to 1 pm. We’ll shine ‘em back to health. Please note, we will start with one pair person.

GIRR’s repair workshop series is funded through the CRD’s Rethink Waste Community Grant program, which we are ever grateful for in helping us to keep useful items out of the waste management system before their time. Thank you to our community for taking part!
