Up-cycling is an even greener way of re-cycling – you find a new purpose for your unwanted items before you throw them away.

Up-cycling helps the environment in several ways.  Your old items aren’t going to the landfill sites,  where a gas called methane is released, which contributes to climate change.

Up-cycling is about taking something old, vintage, treasure and giving it a new lease of life.

At MakeItWorkShop we have a treasure trove of pre-loved items that are vintage, rare, retro and collectable.

Come and check us out at Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport, PR8 1EL.

I have never seen so many fantastic comics in one place.   It truely is a sight to behold and has to be seen to be appreciated.

Southport is the host to Comic Con twice a year, and a huge amount of cosplayers will descend homaging  characters from these very comics.  June 26th at The Prince of Wales Hotel and September 17th at Southports Convention Centre and they are both huge events attended by people from all over the country.

MakeItWorkShop has a vast array of these comics and each one has an amazing price of £1-50.   The special collection editions in plastic covers are £5-00.  Issues date as far back as into the 1980’s. A real must for a collector of Marvel memorabilia.  We would love to see you.  As a fellow cosplayer I look forward to meeting you at both conventions and hopefully see you at our shop.

Pop in and see the collection.

Volunteers Week 1st June to 12th June – A time to celebrate the people in our communities who volunteer –  And showcase what we have to offer new Volunteers .                    !Watch This Space For Information Of What’s Happening !

Recognising the people that have already given so much, and encouraging people to try volunteering for the first time.

This year Volunteers’ Week has been extended by an extra five days this year, to enable more people to take part.

Coordinated by the NCVO in England, it runs from 1-12th June, and is an opportunity to thank volunteers as well as encourage more people to give their time and offering volunteering opportunities. Last year more than 750 events took place, from awards ceremonies to open day offering placements to encourage people to take part who are normally unable to commit.

The end of Volunteers’ Week will coincide with The Patron’s Lunch on 12th June, celebrating the Queen’s lifetime service to the more than 600 charities and organisations to which she acts as a Patron, on her 90th birthday. Communities will be encouraged to participate by giving their time and to think about volunteering.
