New Blue Plaques

Earlier this year Stockport Council approached the Trust with the idea of giving the Borough some more Blue Plaques.

On June 21st members of the Trust met for the third time with Council Staff, as well as David Reid for the Heritage Library, to enable details to be agreed for a Lottery Grant to fund the scheme.

A short list of 25 possible sites will be put to the public vote, so that ten can be chosen and included, with the ones that already exist, in a new Town Blue Plaque Guide.

Voting will take place later this year and it is hoped that the Blue Plaques will be ready for fixing by April - May 2007.
