Daniel delighted to visit Stoke's world famous heritage

Daniel Dalton MEP recently visited the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery (pictured with Deb Klemperer, Principal Collections Officer) where he was delighted to view the wide array of local cultural artefacts dating back in some cases hundreds of years, including the world’s largest collection of Staffordshire ceramics, a world class historical art gallery including the works of Picasso as well taking a seat in the museum’s most prized treasure; an original RAF Spitfire.
 
Daniel said:
 
“The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery is a local treasure and it easy to see why. It was fantastic being shown around by the proud local staff, who do a remarkable job in preserving this heritage and rightly showing off the City’s historic ceramics legacy amongst others. Pottery made in this region can still be found right across the world, often on many of the world's most expensive dinner tables. That is a legacy which is being preserved here.”
 
“To be able to sit in an original spitfire, almost 75 years to the date since some of the bravest people Britain has ever known, took to the skies to defend the nation, was a great privilege and I encourage people from across the West Midlands and indeed the UK to come visit and take a look themselves.”
