Found in Stafford

A few months ago we launched the Stafford Calendar as a place to start this project. There have been quite a few interesting classes, courses and events added so far and more people are becoming aware of it.

As the calendar fills up we will provide pages with just Live Music listings, and other categories as they become viable. Click the Stafford Calendar link in the menu to see what else is going on in Stafford.

In the meantime, please add your events as they come along, you can directly link your own websites in the posts to help build up SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) for Stafford business, groups, traders, performers, artists etc.

In celebration of all the  positive things Stafford has to offer, here’s a round up of just some of the great things on offer in our fabulous county town as part of a regular online Stafford News Blog. Feel free to contact us with your news, articles and events.

Calmer Classrooms Podcast

Staffords very own Kate Beddow, the Calmer Classroom Creator will be explaining many great tips and tricks to keep your children calm during even the most stressful times. Click the image to go to the podcast.

With over twenty years experience working as a teacher, and with families, I know how stressful schools can be. It is my mission to help create calmer classrooms all around the world. Children need focused, calm environments where teachers can teach and children can learn. Only then can they support each other on their educational journey. I began working with schools in 2015 and since then have helped many schools to create calmer classrooms.
