The PR Guru

October 21, 2013


Last week we announced the return of #saysomethingpositive, our drive to show everyone what’s so great about North Staffordshire.

Starting today, we’ll be running a daily update of the most positive stories to spread the love and give all of you a warm glow about our home.

Here’s today’s prospectus of positivity…


One of the main reasons for North Staffordshire’s greatness is the property prices, which are among the lowest in the country.

But that hasn’t stopped swathes of houses in some parts falling into disrepair and dereliction, which is why Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s idea to sell some empty properties for £1 gets a big thumbs-up from all of us here at RSA.

Some of the new owners have been picking up their keys this week. Hopefully the Council will extend the scheme and help a few more first-time buyers get on the property ladder.


Halloween is almost upon us again and that means Scarefest has made a welcome return to Alton Towers.

The spooktacular becomes more popular every year and really lives up to it name. It’s a great coup for Staffordshire, bringing visitors from all over the country to our lovely county.

And anything that brings visitors and shows them what we have to offer is a winner for us!

We love this review, which was posted on The Sentinel’s website earlier.


And finally, some great news for the Staffordshire music scene! Local band In The Cards are venturing to nearby Crewe to headline at The Box.

It will be the first headline gig outside the county for the Birches Head five piece, and comes hot on the heels of their first music video, which was released on October 19th.

Stoke-on-Trent has produced some great musicians over the years (That’s you, Robbie, Lemmy and Slash!) so we think In The Cards will add to our already established musical credibility!

We’d love to run your stories too! If you’d like to see your news on here, drop us a line at
