A community group has been awarded funding to be able to encourage lots of folk in town to get creative this year. The funding, which has been awarded to Creative Cheadle by the National Lottery, is set to see a series of workshops taking place which will encourage residents and visitors of all ages to get creative with a focus on the Queens’ Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

A community group has been awarded funding to be able to encourage lots of folk in town to get creative this year.

The funding, which has been awarded to Creative Cheadle by the National Lottery, is set to see a series of workshops taking place which will encourage residents and visitors of all ages to get creative with a focus on the Queens’ Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Dee Beardmore, who leads Creative Cheadle, told the Times & Echo: “We have some amazing news for you. We at Creative Cheadle applied to the National Lottery Community Fund and have got funding for a Creative skills jubilee celebration.

This will be a legacy to the Queen in her Platinum Jubilee year.

We plan to hold subsidised creative workshops at the Tudor House, teaching traditional creative skills including knitting, crocheting, macrame, pottery, decoupage and more to all ages.

We will start to promote it via our social media and also on Friday, June 3 at the High Street party event to hopefully gather interest in people in joining us in getting creative in the town.”

Dee confirmed that the group has received £7,140 in funding, which is a portion of Creative Cheadle’s total projects costs.

She added: “Lots of people say to us: I wish I could do that but I’m not a bit creative.

We believe that everyone has some form of creative talent within them, it just needs coaxing along.

Being able to say “I made that” gives an enormous sense of well being.”

It is aimed to start the workshops at the end of June.

Dee said: “Our workshops, which will be easy beginner sessions giving a taster of traditional crafts, will be run by independent crafters, makers and artists.

They will be open to anyone wanting to learn a new skill and are a perfect way to make new friends.

If anyone is interested pop along to the Tudor House on Friday, June 3 (the high street party day) to be added to a mailing list or contact creativecheadlestaffs@gmail.com.”
