Town Crier for Stockport

Town CrierStockport now has a Town Crier and if you think you recognise that imposing figure it is our own Jim Clare from St. Mary's Church Heritage Centre.

He could be seen yesterday in the Market Place as well as the Merseyway Shopping Centre announcing to the populace of Stockport, that the Heritage Trust is putting on an exhibition in the Stockport Story Museum as from 30th January.

To advertise the Underground Stockport Exhibition, members of the Trust had a stall for the day in the Tourist Information Centre.

If you thought that the only thing that lies beneath the Town Centre is the Air Raid Shelter, then this exhibition will be an eyeopener to you.

Admission is FREE and there should be plenty to entertain the kids as well as adults.

(The superb Town Crier outfit was made by one of our committee members, Sue Foster.)
