There is a new Art for Wellbeing course starting in Stafford. The course is being run by the WEA and is hosted by Richmond Fellowship. The workshops are aimed at people of all abilities from beginners to more experienced students.
Borderland Voices, the Arts for Health and Mental Wellbeing charity based on Haregate, received a welcome present before Christmas. Leek North Councillor Dani Ogden presented participants with a cheque for £100 from the Councillors’ Community Initiative Fund. This money will help support the weekly, free Creative Writing workshops in 2016.
The next version of the plans for the Staffordshire History Centre online is on Staffordshire County Council's (Staffordshire Record Office) website. This includes floorplans, elevations and 3D illustrations.
You can view these on their website.

From 1 - 3 October, the second Live Age Festival will be celebrating the artistic and creative works of talented, older people from across North Staffordshire.
Coinciding with the International Day of Older People (Oct 1st), activities will take place around Staffordshire’s local community centres, residential homes, theatres and galleries – increasing the number of opportunities for local people to get creative and to train those working in the community to integrate creativity into their work.
