We had a fabulous time at The Hub, Edge Hill University Volunteer Fair at Ormskirk today.
From meeting a lot of lovely people, students and other stall holders to expanding our network.
Everyone was really friendly and we gave out over 150 flyers and spoke to a number of people who were interested in our table and what MakeItWorkShop stood for and what we do.
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.
This is a fantastic event that started in 2011 in response to media coverage of the Toxteth Riots and was aimed at making the area cleaner and greener whilst still having some fun. Now in its 7th year this is going to be the best one yet.
People living in and around the Lodge Lane area of Liverpool are being given an opportunity to show they love their neighbourhood at this special community event.
“LOVING LODGE LANE” features many community activities, but also an effort to make the area tidier and greener. A chance for local people to show the pride they have for their neighbourhood.

WE ARE ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Our fabulous GIGA event is on the road again and on Monday 4th June we will be at The Croissant Of Inequality Cafe. This is a wonderful place that offers events, training and activities in Kensington area of Liverpool 7.
We will be inviting people of the community to bring along their electrical and electronic items to have a FREE PAT TEST and see if their items can be repaired rather then thrown away.
The Croissant Cafe is located at 53-57 Holt Road, Kensington, Liverpool, L7 2PN.
WE WILL BE AVAILABLE at the event from 11am to 3pm.
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.
