Community Council of Staffordshire celebrates 60th birthday

A local charity is celebrating a sparkling achievement by launching a competition to celebrate its 60th birthday.

The Community Council of Staffordshire celebrates wants to share its achievement by encouraging individuals or groups who have worked with the organisation to tell the story of how they have been supported.

“We are trying to capture a picture of what the Community Council has meant to people over the 60 years,” said Chris Welch, Chief Executive.

“You may have only recently been involved with the organisation, perhaps within the last couple of years, or you may have served on the Executive Committee back in the 1950s or 1960s. We want to hear from you whatever your involvement.

“There aren’t many organisations that have reached the grand old age of 60”, said Chris “and we thought what better way of celebrating than asking people for their memories of the organisation.”

The Community Council is the only countywide organisation in Staffordshire that specialises in supporting rural communities and since 1953 has supported and helped a vast number of groups, individuals and communities.

“Searching back through our annual reports, it is really surprising the range of work and support we have given to rural Staffordshire,” Chris added. “We have been involved in village halls, housing, pubs, shops, post offices, training, scrapstores, LA21, out-of-school clubs, the list is endless.”

Cash prizes will be awarded to the most interesting, significant or amusing entries.
