People are being urged to celebrate World Book Day this year by creating a book trail around Churchtown! 

The campaign is being led by Churchtown Primary School, which is urging as many local people and businesses as possible to take part in the fun challenge. 

Their message is that just because we are at home in lockdown for World Book Day this year, it doesn’t mean we can’t still celebrate. 

Samantha Keen, Year 6 Teacher, Reading Lead & KS2 Maths Co-ordinator at Churchtown Primary School in Southport, said: “As part of our World Book Day celebrations at Churchtown Primary, we are looking to set up a community book trail.

“We have initially asked children and families from school but would also love any neighbouring houses, shops etc to be a part of it too.

“We are asking people to decorate their front windows or doors celebrating having a love of books or just of a particular book of their choosing. If anybody wants any more information, they can contact
