Staffordshire County Council recognises and values the important work undertaken by volunteers and voluntary groups within our community across the county. Cllr mike Davies (Cabinet Support Member for Community) has been tasked as part of a pilot scheme in South Staffordshire to work with and expand the capacity of the voluntary sector by identifying individuals and groups who may benefit from membership of either Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services (SCYVS – children, young people and families) or Support Staffordshire (SS – place and adults). Membership of both organisations is free.

On 18th October, a group of KS3 students, accompanied by their English teacher, Miss Wilkes, were fortunate enough to meet the famous American author, Michael Grant at an event hosted by Wolverhampton Grammar School.
Michael is the author of the best-selling Gone book series, which tells the story of the fictitious southern California town where teenagers disappear on their 15th birthday, and the ensuing societal changes that this brings about. Michael has recently written Monster, a stunning continuation of the story of teenagers who morph into superheroes when they ingest an alien virus. With life becoming more terrifying, an immense battle between good and evil will determine the world’s fate.
Michael entertained the students with tales of his life, his love of superheroes and with a reading from his new book, Monster. Our students had the opportunity to ask Michael questions after his talk and to get their books personally signed. They found Michael thoroughly engaging and will hopefully have found plenty of inspiration they can use in their own writing.
