Katy Meets Mike Parr- that’s Real Stockton.

BBC Tees Real Stockton


So, this recent jolly jape came about after we met with our great local councillors Michael and Carol Clark and told them all about our intentions for Real Stockton.

Michael has a journalistic background so put together a brilliant Press Release for us which we sent out to BBC Tees to grab their interest.

Well, it only worked and they invited me (Katy) to go along to meet Mike Parr.  What an experience! Great fun and thanks so much to Mike and Jane at Radio Tees for making us feel so welcome and allowing us a platform to let people know what we were up to.

I didn’t take notes along- Mart suggested the night before it would be better “off the cuff” to just roll with it, chat away off the top of my head.  I thought ‘yeah, chatty, off the cuff, enthusiastic, I’ve got this!!’.  When I returned home he suggested it may have gone off better if I’d taken some notes like he suggested… we’ll leave that as that… Cracking fun though.

Any media training clearly gratefully received!

This is just the start of our Real Stockton chatting – we love talking about our hopes and dreams for Real Stockton so if you want to join in find us on twitter or facebook and lets start a conversation.

Shouting loudly about what’s to love about Stockton on the radio? – that’s Real Stockton to us.
