Trent Talks with Tilley Bancroft: Art in Public Spaces

Trent Talks are fun and informative talks about wildlife and sustainability in the Trent Valley. Get comfy with a hot drink and let us bring nature into your home throughout the winter months.

Making Trails was the team behind the Burton Swans exhibition. Burton Swans was Burton’s largest outdoor art trail which ran in the Summer of 2020 raising over £11,500 for charity and seeing over 11,000 visitors to the town. Local businesses of all sizes sponsored the sculptures and were painted by local and regional artists. The sculptures were then auctioned off for charity.

Elections – vote for local

The local elections are in a month’s time and it will be one of the biggest local democratic processes ever, because its two years’ worth of elections in one. Locally this means the Staffordshire Commissioner election (Police, Crime and Fire – I always thinks its odd that crime is in this title?), plus all out county councillor elections postponed from 2020 plus many district councillors. So some of us will end up with 3 ‘new’ representatives in the corridors of power. Now, I am going to tell you exactly how to vote! Cue big intake of breath…
