Who Are CHAPS?

We are a group of local volunteers working together to commission, promote and support works of public art for the benefit of the Cannock Chase community and its visitors. The art works celebrate the area's heritage and natural environment as well as encouraging community spirit and fostering a sense of place.

Learn about our projects and the impact we've made locally and nationally in commemorating the past while enriching the present and looking towards the future.
