We think Stockport deserves to shine

Stockport gets a bad wrap sometimes, and frankly, we can’t see why. From where we’re sitting, we’ve got a lot to be proud of, whether it’s our people and places, our heritage and sporting prowess, our community spirit, our iconic landmarks or our thriving business landscape. Sat between the Peak District, the Cheshire Plain and the UK’s fastest growing city, Stockport is filled with award winning businesses, exciting developments and passionate people.

We are Stockport is a new publishing platform – a spotlight for any Stockport story you want to tell.  Within just one month live over 7,000 people have visited We are Stockport, increasing by the day.

Have you got a great story to tell? A story that reflects a service, a person or a place that is one of Stockport’s treasures, and maybe at the moment is a hidden gem that deserves to shine?

    Would be better if she knew how to spell ‘rap’.

    The ‘Stockport Home Library Service’ ,which is part of the Stockport Library Service, delivers books ( Large & ordinary print) DVDs, CDs, & talking books to people in the Stockport borough who are housebound and not able to get to their local Library. This is manned by staff from the Home Library Service, helped by volunteers.

    She mentions that she cannot understand why Stockport gets a ‘bad wrap’. Has she not visited the town centre recently – it is a tip and lacking any investment. Quite frankly i think that Primark is keeping Stockport open.
