GIGA.... Get It Going Again

We had the guys here yesterday for the second month running  from the Make It Work Work Shop  looking at small electrical items that aren't working brought in by the community.. They don't profess to be able to fix everything but they believe its always worth at least giving it a try.  We had items of all types brought it from a microwave to a laptop to a food blender. Some items they say may not be repairable and in that event they can  be donated to the workshop to be used as spares or for other re-use projects. They will next be in the area  on the 6 July when they will be taking part at our  Loving Lodge Lane event on the  Bath Street Site ( next to Grierson Street ). Come along and bring  any small electric items that aren't working at the same time.

Leave Liverpool Tidy

Last Wednesday St Bede's hosted a free shop as part of the Leave Liverpool Tidy project.
Leave Liverpool Tidy has come about to try and encourage the student population of Liverpool to be more mindful of the waste they leave behind when moving out of their accommodation at the end term.
The project was created by the Green Guild of the University of Liverpool and  is backed by Liverpool City Council, together they encourage students to donate their unwanted house hold items.
They then give these items away for people to reuse instead of them being thrown away!
One of our volunteers went down to see what she could find for a family member moving into their new home.
They didn't do too badly and came away with bed sheets, a kettle and other kitchen appliances as well as a T.V. stand.
She wasn't the only one, with lots of families in the area coming down to take advantage of the things on offer.
