Silverbergs Opticians Ice sculpture for Charity
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

LIVERPOOL'S Silverbergs, located on Whitechapel, in the City Centre, was putting on quite a show outside the shop situated next to the Met Shopping Centre on 13 July 2013. One shopper was to become very lucky! The shop boasts to have the "largest collection of Designer glasses and Sunglasses in the North West of England." so it was no surprise that the ice sculpture formed outside the store was in the sharp of a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses! They also had a few competitions, and on one of the hottest days of the year so far, many shoppers took a guess at how fast the huge block of ice would melt, revealing a pair of Maui Jim Sunglasses that had been frozen in to the sculpture. Times were taken from 10am to 6pm. The idea was to guess the time they would fall out and every ticket sold was to raise money for the Liverpool Lord Mayor's Charity.

Did you know that the business is family run and totally an independent from any national or international group of shops? Also they have been trading in Liverpool for over 50 years?

If you have a charity event and would like to see if we can attended, please let us know by emailing our events team via:- news24@merseyreporter.com.

Author Sarwat Chadda Has Visited Formby
Video and photographs by Patrick Trollope.

ON a very hot and sunny evening, on the 16 July 2013, author Sarwat Chadda visited Formby Books, as he stopped off on a trip from London to Merseyside. As part of his tour of Mersesyide promoting his book, 'Devil's Kiss' and awesome 'Ash Mistry' series he also visited some schools the following day. The shop provided some light free refreshments as Sarwat met his fans. His books if you do not know about them are ideal for all ages over 10 years and are on the lines of Horowitz, Percy Jackson and Spook's. Over the evening we had the honour of talking to the man himself. If you spotted our Facebook preview videos, then you might guess, Dr who Fans and quite a few other groups might be very keen to pick up his books as well... So if you want to see the full interview we conducted with Sarwat Chadda, please choose the player type below...
