The city of Stoke on Trent has recently been celebrating the fortieth birthday of the pop singer Robbie Williams. Robbie was born in Stoke.
For a while he and his family lived on Victoria Park Road in Tunstall, opposite the park - and now a blue plaque on the park's gate-posts marks the fact.
I always thought that the best local tribute to Robbie came from the BBC Staffordshire website, which depicted his life in a series of photos - in which a doll stood in for the pop-hero! You may agree (or not) - click here to see the life-story.
