Staffordshire’s first poet laureate, Mal Dewhirst, is joining forces with two community builders working in the area to create the document.

A workshop will take place at Open House, on Cherry Close in Burntwood, from 12.30pm to 3pm on April 19.

“The session is open to anyone who would like to find out more about the map and we’re especially keen to hear from local groups and organisations who may have ideas about how the information collected by this project could benefit their own work in the community,” Mal said.
