In collaboration with MERSEYSIDE RECYCLING AND WASTE AUTHORITY – MakeItWorkShop CIC will be holding its 2nd FREE community event at the fabulous Granby Toxteth Development Trust on Thursday 14th June between 11am and 2pm.
We had such an amazing turn out at our first On The Road event so decided to come back. It was brilliant that so many people brought things along for FREE PAT TESTS and repairs.
This really can SAVE YOU MONEY and cut down on landfill. Do you have electric/electronic items gathering dust that you just haven’t gotten round to putting in the bin. Why not get them checked out. MOST ELECTRIC/ELECTRONIC ITEMS PLACED ON LANDFILL STILL WORK!!!! Some just need a small fix. Don’t rush out and buy a new one yet, check if it can be repaired.
So why repair….it saves money, saves waste, saves energy and natural resources.
DONT THROW IT AWAY…..see if it can be restored. Even if it can’t be repaired there are many options still available.
We would love to see you on Thursday 14th June so come on down to Granby To the Development Trust.

Is your toaster toast? Has your kettle run out of steam?
Do you have old electrical items lying around at home?
From kettles to cameras, from battery-operated toys to toasters, from power drills to mobile phones, you have a few options other then putting them in the bin.
Repair, recycle or reuse. By doing this the electrical goods we stop going to landfill helps preserve resources and energy, and stops harmful chemicals entering the environment. As councils warn of a £1bn hike in their rubbish disposal bills because of rising landfill taxes, its time we rethought what we do with those items.
So how much money can be saved? A lot is the simple answer. Cutting down on electrical waste is a key part of this.
A wonderful couple Sian and Simon showed their love of everything Dr Who by having a Dr Who themed Wedding recently. It was fantastic when they got in touch because they had seen our Daleks at Southport Comic Con and asked if we could bring them along to surprise the guests.
We were delighted as Drik and Dred are both mobile and have ring modulators to speak and sound like a Dalek.
Well wisher, family and guests attended dressed as characters from the much loved sci-fi series. There were different incarnations of the Doctor himself everywhere and even a Cyberman.
As he was out exterminating the people of Southport when the upgrade was done to enable elevation up the stairs, Dread had to be carried down a few steps on arrival! Thankfully a few lovely guests helped as he is quite a big boy and weighs a bit.
We and the Daleks had a wonderful time and, so pleased were the happy couple Sian and Simon that they shared some of their wonderful memories from the day with us.
Get yourself down to our sister site at 16 Prince’s Street/corner of Market Street, Southport, PR8 1EZ and take part in a FREE COMMUNITY EVENT TODAY at 1pm -3pm.
We would really love to see you with your electric/electronic items. We are working with Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority to find ways of reducing Landfill, reusing precious materials and in turn save you money. Most electric/electronic items throw away are still in perfect working order or need a simple repair.
Do you have items sitting around that you are thinking of throwing away because they have brought a newer model out, you have more then one, you never got around to repair it – bring it along and we will PAT TEST them and discuss if it can be repaired, reused, repurposed or discuss ways of how to donate.
What do you think of when you say SOUTHPORT? The Marine lake, the beach, Lord Street, Chapel Street. Awesome events like the Food Festival, The AirShow, The Musical Firework Championship, the Christmas Light Switch On.
All of these are amazing events and attract both local residents and visitors into Southport.
BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE.
There are some wonderfully unique, qwerky independent small businesses right in the heart of Southport that remain hidden but are not hiding.
https://www.southportindependents.co.uk/ Is a brilliant website run by Southport Bid to showcase Southport’s Independents across Southport that you might be missing out on. It’s amazing how many people say when they find MakeItWorkShop “how long have you been here, didn’t know you existed!” We are now into our 7th year.
MakeItWorkShop’s new premises at 16 Princes Street/Market Street where we run our FREE GET IT GOING AGAIN events and more recently our Victorian Eye Glass project, is part of a community of electic shops. Ranging from Tattoo’s, vinyl records, books, lighting, cafe’s, cakes, watches, hobby craft, blinds, health, pop up shops, retro and antiques to name but a few.
