SPREAD THE LOVE! #SAYSOMETHINGPOSITIVE #5

It’s been a busy weekend but there’s still plenty of positive Staffordshire stories to be found!

UNEARTHED: A PERMANENT REMINDER OF NORTH STAFFORDSHIRE’S DEFIANCE AGAINST HITLER

Stoke-on-Trent made some major contributions to the war effort during World War Two – not least from one of our favourite sons, Spitfire designer Reginald Mitchell.

But few outside the city will know how the people of Stoke and North Staffordshire helped to rebuild the Czech village of Lidice, which was razed to the ground by the Nazis in 1942.

On Saturday, a beautiful, permanent memorial called Unearthed, which will ensure our involvement is never forgotten, was unveiled. 

SHANE MEADOWS DIRECTS JAKE BUGG’S NEW VIDEO

Acclaimed Staffordshire film-maker Shane Meadows has added to his amazing body of work by collaborating with singer-of-the-moment Jake Bugg on the video for his new single.

The Uttoxeter-born director of masterpieces like This is England and Dead Man’s Shoes produced the video for Slumville Sunrise for the Nottingham 19-year-old, who has sold over 450000 copies of his eponymous debut album since it was released 12 months ago.

His Made of Stone documentary, which followed The Stone Roses on their comeback tour last year, was released on DVD and Bluray this month too. 

WILL THE NEXT RORY MCILROY COME FROM NORTH STAFFS?

Former World no1 golfer Ian Woosnam is teaming up with RMW Golf Ltd to improve the Keele Golf Centre.

The Welshman will also be teaming up with Newcastle College to launch his first academy, and is aiming to find future Open or US Masters winners from the local area.

We can’t wait for the wave of world-class golfers from Staffordshire!

Get in touch if you have a positive local story to feature – we love to hear about great local news!
