A great stocking filler that inspires creativity and shares our wonderful local heritage

Chamber member, A Touch of Alchemy, which specialises in personal development and life coaching has been running a series of workshops in local primary schools to promote literacy, reading, positivity, wellbeing and mindfulness.

To support this work, Director Rebecca Blinston has captured her passion for storytelling by putting pen to paper herself and publishing her own book series.

Rebecca said: “I love to share my passion for storytelling, creativity and positivity. The diverse heritage of Liverpool City Region inspired me to write a series of children’s fiction stories called The Mersey Tales. The stories explore the beautiful landmarks and rich heritage of the Liverpool City Region with animal characters.
