What’s New at Middleport Pottery?

In 2014, many of you know I made contact with the head of the Prince’s Restoration Trust, which was refurbishing and reopening the famous Middleport Pottery in Stoke on Trent, England. They even generously presented us with 2 pitchers and bowls made at the newly reopened facility, hoping we would use them to entertain visitors with chicken wings and beer. I had to persuade them that the new tea set they wanted to send would not prove as popular as it would in their area. I have faithfully continues to follow the web site in England and enjoy reading all about the fabulous activities they offer. They also have great video of the whole restoration process and the history of the pottery making industry in More Info »

Drop box for unwanted prescriptions

Just a reminder, if you have outdated or unwanted prescription drugs or over the counter drugs or supplements, there is a drop box in the Middleport Police Department (22 Main Street, next door to the Village Hall, 24 Main Street) to get rid of those things. This drop box is available to everyone, not just Village residents. If you want to get that outdated stuff out of your house, here is an easy solution to that problem.
