A quick peek at one of the items we will be bringing along with us to Southport Comic Con on Saturday 24th February.

Doctor Who Comic Event exclusive – Signed by Neil Edwards / Paul Cornell on 13th January, 2016. Doctor Who 2015 Four Doctors was a Forbidden Planet Exclusive Signed Edition.

It’s the greatest Doctor Who comics crossover event of all time, as the Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth incarnations of the Doctor come face to face for the first time ever!

When an unseen enemy maneuvers the three Doctors into an impossible meeting, the future of the universe itself is put at stake. It will take all of the Doctor’s innate cunning and adaptability to team up with his past and present selves to uncover the immensely powerful culprit!

Tickets and information on the event can be found at https://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Southport/Southport-Theatre-And-Convention-Centre/Southport-Comic-Con-2018/13050920/

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.

Telephone Of The Week – GPO 706 Model – A One Of A Kind Lace Effect Gold over Black – A Real Centre Piece – MakeItWorkShop – Dark and Glamorous

Posted on


A wonderfully customised GPO 706 Telephone dating back to 1968. 

The 706 was the earlier of the GPO’s ‘modern’ design phones, introduced into the UK in the late 1950’s. These phones are heavier than their later cousins (the 746) and of an extremely sturdy and reliable design and build.

This particular example has been professional re-styled with a magnificent lace effect finish in gold and black. She is one of a kind! Offers around £110… and remember, we are always open to resonable offers on the items we sell. If you can get into the shop to view this one, we are sure you will be impressed.

It’s certainly unusual and would make an ideal  gift or present for that special person in your life. It would look amazing in any room and is a real conversation piece. 

It’s fully functional, converted and working and is ready to plug into your current telephone line to use straight away.  

“The phone is guaranteed for a full 12 months: all parts and labour free…. and then a nominal charge of around £10 plus parts after that; a lifetime Warranty by any standards. Hope you like her as much as we do! 😉

Call in and see her at our Community Enterprise based at Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport, PR8 1EN. Telephone enquiries are always welcome. 

You can also visit our webpage “MakeItWorkShop.org” for more information or visit our Facebook Page “MakeItWorkshop CIC”. and find what our community enterprise does.

Or you can apply to become a volunteer. We are always looking for people from our community to get involved.

Meet The People That Make It Possible  –  Mike Carpenter – MakeItWorkShop

Posted on

  
My name is Mike Carpenter and I started working for MakeItWorkShop back in 2012 after having many disagreements with the other charities I worked for.  We started as Tools For Self Reliance at the Entertainers Store at the front of the arcade.  We were told we had to move after being there only 9 months after obtaining timber from The  Market that was being refurbished.  We have worked really hard to establish the shops we have now at Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport.  

I have learnt how to refurbish telephones and work on the till.  Aswell as working in the shop I also work for Shoreline Church, picking up from bakeries and taking the food to the church to be bagged up and given to the homeless.  

I also have an unusual hobby of collecting ties (not ordinary ties).   It started with Bus & Coach, Train and Police and to make it more collectable I incorporated Police, Fire, Ambulance and Government Departments from all around the world.    At the present time I have over 1,000 ties.  I am always on the look out for new more rarer items to add to my collection.

Why not call in to see us at MakeItWorkShop, Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Eastbank Street, Southport, PR8 1EL telephone 01704 535123.
