Friends of Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive ServiceThe Friends of Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service (FoSSA) were formed to bring together the many different users of the Archive Service and to support its work. Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent are home to world-famous industries, elegant country houses and multitudes of organisations which embrace social, political and religious life.
Over centuries they have left a rich archival heritage. Archival collections contain unique and irreplaceable documents which form our recorded memory and tell the story of local communities; the role of the Archive Service is to locate, collect and preserve these collections and make them accessible to the public at the archive offices across Staffordshire.
The Friends host social events of interest to all archive users to raise funds for specific Archive Service projects (aimed at improving public access to collections) as well as aiming to raise awareness of the work of the Archive Service. They are also able to provide practical help to the Archive Service in the form of volunteers, and keep members up to date through regular Newsletters.
Annual membership £8.00; joint membership £12.00; corporate/society membership £15.00; life membership £100.00. Please make cheques payable to FoSSA and return to Malcolm Price, Membership Secretary. FoSSA , 23, The Flashes, Gnosall, Stafford. ST20 0HL

Members take part in the fun and exercise (physical and mental) as well as keeping alive the ancient folk art. (Stafford Morris Men have been around, certainly since the 16th century and probably before).
We welcome new members as dancers or musicians and require no experience, only enthusiasm! We receive no payment, but we do get to go to lots of interesting places.
Everybody wants us to keep the heritage alive, but few have the courage to join us!
We are happy to give talks and demonstrations to interested groups including the history and detailed explanation of the dances. We also, on occasions, perform Rapper and Longsword dances, as well as performing Staffordshire ‘Guizer Plays’ around Christmas time.

- The Staffordshire Heritage Group would like to thank all those who supported our campaign and who helped in the design of the new Staffordshire County Flag, especially in view of the limited time allowed. Well done everyone. This was a great example of how our member groups are able to unite to maintain our heritage.
- Result of the Vote for The County Flag of Staffordshire The Flag Institute, the UK’s national flag charity, maintains the register of County Flags, which can be viewed on their website (www.flaginstitute.org) and works with county organisations to come up with suitable designs. The County Flags are based on the historic counties of the UK, rather than the modern administrative areas, so Staffordshire includes Stoke-on-Trent, Wolverhampton, and several other parishes that fall outside Staffordshire County Council’s area.
- The Flag Institute received two applications for a County Flag for Staffordshire, one from Staffordshire County Council (SCC) and the other from the Staffordshire Heritage Group (SHG), an umbrella organisation for many cultural groups in Staffordshire. Both applications met the Flag Institute’s criteria for applying and the Institute’s design guidelines, so the Flag Institute decided to give the people of Staffordshire an opportunity to vote for the design they liked best.
- Results of Public Vote:
- Staffordshire County Council: 211 (ie. 5 excluded) – 27.16% of validated votes
- Staffordshire Heritage Group: 566 (ie. 30 excluded) – 72.84% of validated votes
- The Staffordshire Heritage Group design is therefore the winner and it will be added to the Flag registry as the County Flag of Staffordshire. The Staffordshire County Council design will, of course, remain the Council’s own flag, as it is a banner of their arms.
- The winning design is shown below:
