Ten weeks to go

A few weeks ago I asked readers to put the date of Wednesday 1 May in their diary.

Some people will already be aware of this annual celebration but for those that aren’t, it’s Staffordshire Day and it’s our day to tell the world what a great place Staffordshire is.

This is our forth Staffordshire Day and it’s all about being proud of where we live while promoting our great county and attracting more visitors.

Our theme this year is ‘Made in Staffordshire’ and we’ll be celebrating all the great stuff made here including our world famous pottery heritage.

We’re also having the Great Staffordshire Day Quiz, Staffordshire Mug Shots and the World’s Biggest Oatcake morning back again this year.

Lots of our tourist attractions will also be offering special offers on the day and our libraries will be joining in the fun with a range of arts and crafts activities.

In a previous celebration over 60,000 people took part in activities and it generated over £1m for the local economy. We were also trending on Twitter last time too which was great.

Today is exactly 10 weeks to the day itself so it’s a good time to start thinking about what you’ll be doing. You can keep up to date with events and activities at www.enjoystaffordshire.com/staffsday
