Tameside Story Makers

Story Makers

Story Makers The Emergency Services sessions are fun and interactive story telling sessions aimed at children aged 0-4 years and their families.  Simon the Story Teller delivers weekly sessions in libraries and online via Zoom.  The Story Makers The Emergency Services sessions are funded by Community Safety.
Families will have the opportunity to  attend workshops with award winning children's writer Susanne Schroder and illustrator Andrew Rowland to help create a children’s picture book, which will be printed and published. All families attending the sessions will receive a free copy at the book launch.
