Staffordshire Day 1 May 2018

Tue 13 Mar 2018

Tuesday 1st May is the third annual Staffordshire Day – our chance to celebrate our wonderful county!

Organised by the county’s official tourist board Enjoy Staffordshire, with the support of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent’s local authorities, the programme includes events, special offers, competitions and a flurry of activity on social media.

This year, we are looking for community groups to get involved by putting together their own events, telling the world why they love Staffordshire on social media using the #StaffordshireDay hashtag, and supporting the following activities:

  • The Staffordshire Day Mugshot: share an image of yourself drinking from a Staffordshire-made mug, for example one with an iconic pattern, like the Emma Bridgewater Polka Dot, or showing the backstamp (the mark on the bottom of the mug which reveals where it was made).
  • The World’s Biggest Oatcake Morning: host an oatcake breakfast in your parish, asking for donations from guests to cover the cost. Inspired by Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, this could be done to fund raise for a local cause or a charity of your choice. Promotional materials are available from Enjoy Staffordshire.

For further details on how to get involved, please contact Richard Swancott at Enjoy Staffordshire on 01785 277986 or richard.swancott@staffordshire.gov.uk.
