You can help keep Longton’s history alive by sharing your memories with B-Arts, a local group who are working with students from Staffordshire University to create an online archive describing what the town was like in the past.
B-Arts will be in Longton market every Wednesday throughout April to tell you about the project and explain how you can volunteer to help create an interactive heritage trail around the town.
Councillor Ruth Rosenau, cabinet member for regeneration, planning and transportation, said: “This is an excellent opportunity to get involved in a really important historical project that will help to preserve memories of Longton in years gone by.
“I would urge anyone with an interest in local history as well as those who would like to gain valuable work experience or who would just like to meet new people, to pop down to the market and volunteer. It is also a great opportunity for people who have lived in the town for some time, and can reflect on how the area has changed, to share their stories of Longton’s past with younger generations.”
