Recent Activity Worth Noting:

”At about 1pm on or around 22/June (Wed) a male resident in Quarry Road had a knock at the door. A 20 years old youth told him “there was trouble with the pipes” and that “his gaffer wanted to see the man by his van.” The man looked but could see no van. At this stage they were joined by a care worker. The youth ran off with two other males. The only descriptions we have are:- 20 years old male, 5ft 4ins tall, broad build, short hair, wearing a black jacket with a white insignia on the breast tall lad wearing a baseball cap, white shirt and blue jeans male wearing a brown jacket. No vehicle was seen. If you see or hear about anything similar call the police on 0300 1234455 and refer to incident 356 of the 22nd.

Penkhull Jazz and Blues festival 23rd July 2011

June 29, 2011

The event is on 23rd July and will see Penkhull host another fantastic day of music, entertainment and fun for the family.

According to the Penkhull Jazz and Blues festival site, the event this year is totally self funded and needs as much support as people can offer.

The Jazz and Blues site quotes:

Funding for the 2011 festival is needed from the local community to help us to put on the event: due to the recession and funding cuts we are more reliant than ever on sponsorship from individuals and local companies – we are on the verge of generating the income we need. However small a donation, we appreciate all the support you can give the festival. Please email us.

New proposed plans for Thistley Hough High School cause concern

May 4, 2011

New plans proposed plans for Thistley Hough High School are out and can been seen on the Stoke-on-Trent Council web (you can see the planning request here)

Some Penkhull Residents Association are concerned that only the current entrance will be used which is both near to a busy road junction.

It asked for a through traffic drop off system taking the out traffic to a bottom entrance, left only turn. This would considerably reduce current traffic issues at the junction of Lodge/Thistley Hough and Newcastle Lane.

What are your thoughts on this?
