GET IT GOING AGAIN MANN ISLAND – LIVERPOOL

Posted on

Well what a fabulous success it has been so far for our GIGA Events. We have been on the road since May this year. Our initial GIGA event started in November last year and we have gone from strength to strength. Our last event gave us 40 items to PAT TEST and repair. It’s wonderful to see how far we have come. We have also met some wonderful organisations and people.

Working alongside Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority has been mutually beneficial and we have saved numerous items from Landfill as well as saving people money.

We have our next event at the offices of Merseyside Recycling and Waste on Thursday 26th July between 11am and 2pm. We are really excited about this one.

Directions are above in the poster telling you how to get there by train, bus and car. The address is 7th Floor, No 1 Mann Island, Liverpool, L3 1BP.

We will be carrying out FREE PAT TESTING, and FREE repairs during the event. It’s been so satisfying knowing we are helping the environment and helping people.

We would love to see you at Mann Island.

What a fabulous day we had at the Loving Lodge Lane event on Friday.  The sun was cracking the flags and was the perfect day for a Community Event.
Organised by Granby Toxteth Development Trust to celebrate the Lodge Lane/Toxteth community.  Now into its 7th year it was bigger and better then ever.
There were some wonderful contributors who had stalls such as Steve Biko Housing, Metal, Bulky Bobs, The Anthony Walker Foundation, MakeItWorkShop  CIC, Sanctuary Family Support to name but a few.
It was a great day of sharing in the community and helping each other.   There were some fabulous freebies given away aswell.  A community clothes rail, Herb Plants and blood pressure readings from  Granby Toxteth Development Trust, furniture courtesy of Bulky Bobs, fruit bags and  water from Sanctuary Family Support.   There were lots of activities to try like mask making, floral arranging, mosaic tiles and a spot of Tai  Chi.
