Blurton is a suburb of the city of Stoke on Trent and is situated about one mile south of Longton. A mostly residential area that has pockets of events which take place throughout its community.

Blurton is a collection of residential areas known locally as Blurton Farm, Goms Mill, Hollybush, Old Blurton and Newstead. 

The area has a good number of community focused organisations such as Affordable Foods, The Hollybush Centre, Longton Hall Road Residents Association, Oakwood Road Community Centre, Blurton Lads n Dads, Blurton Community Hub, Blurton Farm Residents Association and Landau to name a few. It is also served by St. Paul’s Church, St Alban’s Church and St. Bartholomew’s Church.  Blurton is home to the Douglas Macmillan Hospice and the Donna Louise Hospice which provide support to people from across North Staffordshire and beyond. Many community organisations continue to come together as Blurton in Bloom and they were the first community in the city to gain an award from Britain in Bloom.

Blurton has lots of green open space and parks including Blurton Park on Rippon Road with a small play area, the Millpond on Gainsborough Road, Newstead play area on Waterside Drive and Hollybush play area. Very close by is Queens Park which one of the best parks in the region with a play area, café, tennis courts, outdoor gym equipment, events and much more. The Blurton area also has a number of allotment sites including a community allotment project funded by The National Lottery at Drubbery Gardens.  The allotment sites can be found by visiting Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s website.

The area is served by the Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy (OSSMA), which is a mixed secondary school with academy status. The academy is named after football’s first knight, Sir Stanley Matthews, who was born in Stoke-on-Trent and played for Stoke City, whose ground is nearby, and the academy is sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust. The area is also served by three primary schools; Newstead Academy, Sutherland Academy and The Meadows Academy
