Stockport Remembered

'Stockport Remembers' was the first time Woodbank Park has been used to remember the 'Fallen' of Stockport, for a very long time.

The park was given to the people of Stockport following the First World War and has been sadly neglected in recent years but with the remaining memorial gate having been given a face lift and a new tree sculpture to commemorate animals that served in conflicts, it was the perfect time to remember.

A little rain dampened the afternoon but otherwise it was a good day out.

Stockport Festival

Saturday 3rd Sep. was the first ever Stockport Festival. The weather was kind and people came out to see what was on offer. There was fun for all the family and the town's varying retail areas took part.

The Trust had a stall and provided a 'Roll A Penny' game, which the mayor seemed to enjoy.

Let's hope this is only one of many.
