seeking LBS NW England to reno/service Mezzo D9

Hello friends of the fold, long time since I've been here.
I have a Mezzo D9 I bought in 2018 used, which has just gathered dust and cobwebs in my garage.
I'd like to get it renovated and service, but not being in production there are no dealers I can go to.
Does anyone have any recommendations of an LBS in the NW of England, preferrably Manchester, I might get to take care of it ?
thanks in anticipation of any suggestions.

Gus.

What does it need? looking at it, it seems to be using standards component. As long as the frame set and wheels are straight, a good clean, regrease where needed, change the cables and a cable housing and chain, job done.
if the derailleur is dead, you can fit either a altus m310 or sora short cage with a trigger shifter (altus/alivio 9 speed or sora 9 speed, 9 speed shimano are compatible so mix and match is possible). and while you are at it, swap the 11-26 cassette for a 11-32.

Any "old fashion shop" should be able to do it if you cannot do it. I would avoid any shinny trendy shop...

@ Gus,
This is a suggestion, not a recommendation, I've never used this shop, but Harry Hall Cycles (67-69 Whitworth St W, Manchester M1 5WQ) have good Google reviews and claim to have been dealing with Bromptons for 35 years. You could give them a ring (0161 236 5699) and see if they're willing to help. I think a dealer with folding bike experience would be better than one with none even if they don't specialise in Mezzo's.
