20 Jan 18 | If we’ve got something to shout about, we should shout about it
I would like to thank all those who have signed the petition calling for me to be awarded the Freedom of Stoke-on-Trent.
It really is quite something to be thought of in those terms. I’m a normal person. What I do doesn’t make me better than anyone, it just makes me different.
I had no expectation of receiving an honour like this, but if people want to put me up for it, then why not?
I do believe if we’ve got something to shout about we should shout about it. And that goes for all sorts of projects and people that are doing great work in North Staffordshire.
I’d be honoured to receive the freedom of the city, as would anyone. Hopefully, I’m a good role model for what can be achieved with dedication and hard work. If an award such as this emphasised that, then that would be brilliant.
So, if you’d like to sign the petition, please use the link below.
