Moorlands artists in the spotlight

Artisans from across the Staffordshire Moorlands took centre stage for the annual celebration of their creativity and the value the arts add to our lives.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council in partnership with Support Staffordshire hosted a performance and awards evening to recognise the valuable contribution of the artistic community.

The Biddulph, Cheadle and Leek art forums all displayed examples of their work and produced short performances on the evening followed by the presentation of their funding awards of £3,500 by Council Leader Councillor Sybil Ralphs.

Councillor Ralphs, who is also portfolio holder for arts and culture, said: "This is the fourth year we've hosted this event and it's one I always look forward to. It's a particular pleasure to see the creative heritage for which this district is famous continuing to thrive and I'm delighted that we are once again able to offer financial support to the arts forums.

"There is such a breadth of talent and expression on show that you can't fail to be inspired. I would recommend that anyone who wants to get involved in the local arts scene contacts their local forum."
