Award winning social enterprise opens in Halton

Started in Skelmersdale, The Sewing Rooms is a multiple award winning social enterprise that, with support from Well North, is expanding into Halton.

Based in Runcorn Shopping City, the new Sewing Rooms Halton will work closely with groups and individuals at risk of isolation, those with mental health issues and people experiencing long-term unemployment.

The Sewing Rooms enterprise was co-founded by lifelong entrepreneurs Maureen Fazal and Paula Gamester, and its expansion includes hiring local creative talent Victoria Begg. The Runcorn native and textile designer brings with her a wealth of local knowledge and experience, which will help the Sewing Rooms Halton replicate the successful mix of social and commercial programmes already being run in Skelmersdale.
