Conversation Staffordshire events

There are lots of challenges to our health and social care system and a Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is being developed to address these. If you live or work locally, Conversation Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent is your chance to take part in an open discussion about your health services and the way they are delivered.

Community Speed Watch

Forsbrook Parish Council has recently secured funding from County Councillor William Day for a community speed watch. The funding of approx. £900 has funded the equipment and training for volunteers to staff a community speed watch at certain points through the Parish. We now need approximately five volunteers who would be prepared to undertake a day’s training with the police and give up a few hours a month (maximum) in carrying out the speed watch. If you are interested could you pm me with your details and once we have training dates I will be back in touch. If in the unlikely event that we have too many volunteers I will have to choose on a first come basis.
