As Part Two of Harry Wakeling's 'Lost Moments' commission he asked: 'What are you most looking forward to when lockdown ends?" The answers were full of hope. They have now been installed on lamposts around the town of Stoke to brighten up people's days. Head over to the Lost Moments page to view them all, or better still, take a walk through the town if you are near to Stoke.
Our friends at Letting in the Light are creating a walking trail in Stoke this spring and it will feature the hidden gems of the town of Stoke.
They are asking for suggestions and photos from local people asking them to share what the hidden gems of the town are

In January we got the keys to Plot 33 - an allotment for Greening Stoke!
Anne and Rachel are writing a regular blog post which you can follow through the Greening Stoke website, or use the link from the Greening Stoke page.
Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light.
"We want to share with you the journey of taking on an allotment for Greening Stoke. We will share our ups and our downs, and we hope that you will be able to come and visit us during 2021.
Sign up to our newsletter too, keep up to date with how the allotment is developing and, once lockeown eases, we can tell you when we are running activities you can join in.
Festival Stoke is a collaborative of creative people working together to make good things happen.
