ASK ANNA: Episode One

This Saturday saw the first of the ASK ANNA episodes to broadcast from SHOP. Six people came along to be interviewed, and our studio audience were fantastic.

First, SHOP's own Gemma Thomas talked about her inspiration for SHOP and what she hopes the legacy might be for the project.

Next up local Enterprise Coach Gayle Jessiman talked about her work with new businesses in the area - and why we might have reason to be cheerful in Stoke.

Then there was a cooking demonstration from Culturing Stuff's Lisa and Chris - who showed us how to make the traditional Staffordshire Oatcake fresh that morning from 'Traditional Oatcakes' just down the road from SHOP.

Local resident's association member Liz Perry came along to talk to us about her passion for seeing more green spaces in the Town, and to talk about the community garden she helped to set up on London Road.

Then B Arts came along to talk to us about some of the projects they have worked on over their last 25 years in the City. Touching on why they do not feel that the massive cuts to the arts are a totally gloomy thing.
