Heritage Centre Announcement

Stockport Heritage Trust are facing a crisis of space. Following their temporary move out of St. Mary's church for the duration of the internal improvements, they have made their home quite happily in premises above 'Direct Fish' on Bridge Street Brow.  Unless storage facilities can be found in the town centre, in the next few months, they will be facing the need to down size their huge collection of vintage and heritage artefacts.

For this reason a plea has gone out  to people who have given or loaned items over the years, that if they would like them returned could they please contact the Heritage Centre before  Dec 31st this year. Following this date, if no other storage can be found, they will be sold to raise funds for the continued running of the Heritage Centre.

4 Heatons Voices

4 Heatons Voices - ‘Those 20 years’

An exciting new history project is to be launched in The Heatons in November. ‘4 Heatons Voices’ is the inspiration of the Rotary Club of Stockport Lamplighter and will be 12 months of events and activities looking at ‘Those 20 Years’ – the period between the 2 World Wars.

The project will include visual and oral histories, where those with personal memories of the period will be able to record their memories and preserve them for future generations. It is an opportunity for older people to give their own, individual accounts, rather than the ‘official’ history of those times and will help younger people in their understanding of that time, in their community.

 The project will be launched on Sunday 4th November at The Crown Inn, Heaton Mersey, with both Jazz and Ukelele Bands playing music from the era and will continue with talks, help to sort out your family archives & those of local organisations, visits to the Heritage Library, a 1920/30s fashion display, archive films of the period and much, much more.

We would like to hear from anyone with personal recollections of the period and from individuals or organisations who would like to join in.

Please contact: Clyde Raine – 0161 432 7161
