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.

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.
Fred In The Shed – A Lambing Chair Is Recreated Into A Happy Chair – A Donation To Presfield High School & Specialist College in Southport
Presfield High School & Specialist College is based at Churchtown in Southport.
Fred In The Shed is MakeItWorkShop’s fantastic recycling/furniture project based in Cambridge Walks, Cambridge Arcade, Southport.
We are proud to have been able to create a beautiful, colourful and bright piece of furniture to donate to this outstanding school where students all have a diagnosis of autism. Presfield currently have a chill out room, sensory room and a secure school playground to help students to enjoy learning or if at times they become distressed have a safe place to go. We hope that the staff and children will enjoy using the Happy Chair which has a large drawer for toys and a comfy cushion.
So what was a lambing chair? They were once a common sight in farmhouse kitchens in the Yorkshire Dales.
When ewes were giving birth, shepherds could sit in them all night, dozing by the fire and protected from draughts by the chairs wings and hood.
They are an extremely useful piece of furniture because in front was a large drawer in which a cold small lamb could be popped into and warmed up by a bed of hay.
