As the City of Culture judges spend a day visiting Stoke-on-Trent, here’s a message from PREM Management:

They say it’s impossible to get to know the city of Stoke-on-Trent in a day. They’re wrong. You can get to know the city of Stoke-on-Trent in 30 seconds.

How? By getting off the train and simply asking somebody, anybody, what they love about their hometown. Their only quandary will be where to begin. Possibly it will be with a starter of oatcakes, served up with a main course of the Spitfire and Reginald Mitchell, a dessert of Stanley Matthews, washed down with a mugful of the Staffordshire Hoard.

Others might feast on the New Vic Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent Literary Festival, and Emma Bridgewater. And don’t forget a side dish of Arnold Bennett. Yet more might prefer a meat pie and cup of Bovril at Stoke City or the Vale.
Thing is, Stoke defies definition. It is six towns of six different people. It means something unique to everyone, and it is that variety, that living everyday variety, that makes it so beautifully joyous a place in which to live.

People decry Stoke-on-Trent. They say it has been lost, a post-industrial landscape reflecting former glories. No. What we have in Stoke-on-Trent is heritage - but heritage that will take us forward. Those skills we always had – creative, industrial, engineering, artistic – are those that still captivate the world.

The name of this city exists on the underneaths of cups, saucers, plates across the globe. Its tiles furnish some of the most ornate buildings on the planet. More than that, though, Stoke-on-Trent exists in the heart, both of those who live here, and those from elsewhere who hold it dear.

Stoke-on-Trent has a story, and that story deserves to be told. City of Culture is our chance to do exactly that.

Chapters past, present, and future. We know the brilliance of this city. Let others hear it too.

ELEVEN daredevils, including several Stoke City members of staff, took the plunge from 10,000 feet at the weekend in aid of the Community Trust.

PREM Management, Melissa Matthews along with members of staff at Stoke City, Hayley Buckton and Saranjit Kairo took part in the parachute jump, helping to raise over £1,500 for the Potters' charity fund.

Two groups took to the skies, 'Team Stoke' and 'Team Radwell International', with all but PREM's Melissa, making their first ever jump over Whitchurch on the 6th August.

The Club's Fundraising Officer Steve Hunt paid tribute to the participants and thanked them, as well as Sky Dive Tilstock, for raising the proceeds.

"Jumping from an aeroplane doesn't sound too appealing to a lot of people, so I would just like to thank everyone who took part for doing so, and helping us to raise a significant amount of money for charity.

"From speaking to the participants it is clear that they had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, which in no small part is down to Alex and his team at Sky Dive Tilstock."
