9 January 2018 Local News
On Monday 8th January 2018, Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis visited the HitMix Studios to discuss community engagement and how the funds we were granted help our local area.
Following our successful application for the Commissioner’s People Power Fund, the HitMix was granted funds to create a purpose built studio for the local community.
The purpose built studio allows youngsters to learn about broadcasting, develop their numeracy and literacy skills and ultimately keep them off the streets. The studio also brings the community together and gives it a local voice.
Members of the local community now have the opportunity to get involved and tell their stories. This includes the free publicity and promotion of local not-for-profit community groups and charities of which we provide on the Careline.
Mr Ellis also spoke about how important it is to support the local community and how funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner can greatly help improve the area and bring communities together.
Further details on the work that the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner carries out can be found on the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner website www.staffordshire-pcc.gov.uk/
