I SPY WITH MY LITTLE EYE ….. OUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE GEOFF RILEY

Will your Idea Work? Three posters like the one seen here next to our Chief Executive Geoff Riley are located on bus shelters around Stafford where the BIC will be holding a workshop on 6 June entitled "Will your Idea Work?" Let us know through Social Media @staffsBIC if you've seen the posters and where they are. If you know anybody who has a new product idea and not sure whether it is feasible, do encourage them to attend this event at www.thebic.co.uk/events and we will give them the skills they need to find out if their idea will work and also introduce them to the BIC's £5,000 New Product Development Grant.

BIC CELEBRATE STAFFORDSHIRE DAY

Staffordshire Day was first celebrated in 2016 and apparently marks the 1000th anniversary of the first mention of the county of Staffordshire. 1st May is also the anniversary of the founding of Josiah Wedgwood & Sons. BIC staff including Paul who took the photograph celebrated today with a cup of tea using our very own Wedgwood Tea Set. Over the years we have collected a number of pieces of Staffordshire pottery and are all proud to live and work in Staffordshire.

£1,000 To Support The Stroke Association

Our Sally proudly shows the results of her fundraising campaign to raise money for the Stroke Association in memory of her lovely mum who sadly passed away last year. Sally and her friend Caroline set themselves a challenge to raise £750 through sponsorship by running the Stafford Half Marathon in March and the Trentham Gardens 15k on 7 April 2019.
