Christmas is coming

Stoke_lights_01.jpgNovember 28th.  Put that date in your diary.  The Christmas lights switch-on in Stoke Town Centre has become a firm favourite over the last few years.

When I was first elected the previous coalition council had cut all funds for Christmas activities outside of the City Centre.  Many people had complained to me about this situation.  I spoke to Tristram Hunt MP and we put together a small committee to try to do something about it.  This was the start of what is now the Stoke Events Group.  I have chaired this group since its inception.  We have had some good times and some difficult ones but each year since 2012 we have managed to grow the event.

We still want to do more and if you want to volunteer or sponsor any part of the event please email

I shall be posting updates regularly until the day
