Officers were called to the premises, off High Lane in Burslem, last Tuesday night following reports of criminal damage. On arrival, officers discovered tyre tracks on the surface of the green. The incident happened between 2.30 on the afternoon of Sunday 15 October and the following morning. Police are keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and has CCTV or dashcam footage that could help them with their investigation. You can contact them through Live Chat on their website – www.staffordshire.police.uk – or call 101, quoting incident number 84 of October 17.
Stoke on Trent College has officially launched their newly refurbished training restaurant – The Hammersley. The launch took place during the national Love Our Colleges week campaign which is led by the Association of Colleges and is a chance to showcase all the great work which college’s do to support communities, boost businesses and support individuals.
Named after the famous dragon fountain situated directly opposite the campus in Hanley Park, The Hammersley is a top-class training restaurant, staffed by supervised by students as part of their Hospitality and Catering course.
Newcastle Under Lyme’s Business Improvement District has secured vital funding from the Police Commissioner’s Safer Streets Fund to improve safety and to support local businesses in the town centre during the festive period. The funding will enable the use of First Aid Responders on key Saturday dates throughout November and December, including Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, with the aim of alleviating pressure on essential resources, such as Staffordshire Police and the Accident and Emergency Unit at Royal Stoke University Hospital.
The funding comes following positive feedback from night time economy businesses after a successful initiative by the Borough Council that provides coverage on Friday evenings from the Women’s Safe Space in the Ironmarket.
