Even if you know nothing about the American politician Benjamin Franklin himself, you’re probably still familiar with this famous quote of his from 1789…
“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”
Over 200 years later, Franklin’s words still ring true, but perhaps his quote could be updated slightly to read like this instead…
“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes, and people moaning about where they live.”
Indeed, whinging about the town/city we live in seems to be a part of our nation’s identity, just as much as the white cliffs of Dover or the ‘Antiques Roadshow’ are.
Here at Stone’s Throw however we want to take a stand against this negativity, which is why in this blog entry we want to talk about our home city – Wolverhampton – and all the good stuff that’s happening here of late.
We’re proud residents of the city, which is why we’re thrilled with the regeneration of Wolverhampton that’s currently taking place and wanted to take a moment to highlight it.
What do we mean? Well…
Alongside these success stories, we like to think we’re playing our part in the regeneration of Wolverhampton too!
We’ve been working with organisations associated with the city since our inception – as you can see in the examples below – and are always pleased to highlight any projects which have a positive impact on the local economy.
So not only is the regeneration of Wolverhampton well on its way, it’s also more affordable to run a business here compared to, for example, London, and it’s a (wait for it) stone’s throw(!) away from Birmingham or, if countryside is more your thing, the beautiful county of Shropshire.
Now that’s all something to shout about – which is why we’re doing precisely that!
