Reddish Centenary Celebrations

Saturday 24th May 2008 was a very important day in the life of Reddish. Exactly 100 years before, Stockport Corporation presented Reddish with it's own Library/Fire station/Baths complex as a commemoration of it becoming part of the borough of Stockport.

It was a day to celebrate and that is what Reddish did. They came out in force to show their love for this most unusual and probably unique building.

The day started with MP Andrew Gwynne, cutting the ribbon and ended with cutting the cake, and between these, there was free drinks and scones for all as well as Reddish Brass Band and choirs, and other musical entertainment.
Two Fire Engines graced the yard, one modern and the other over 60 years old. The Mortuary was open for inspection as was the baths and the queue for the latter stretched down the road.

Well done to Terry Rourke and the team for a great day.
