Stockport Express

Website to shout about Stockport


A WEBSITE has been launched to showcase positive stories from across the town.

We Are Stockport will bring together news from other sites – including the Stockport Express – and direct traffic back to them.

The site has been funded by Stockport Council with support from the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and is being edited by former BBC head of communicat­ions Rachel Wallace.

Rache said: “It’s not just about uncovering a great story, it’s what happens when it gets posted up on the site.

“I’m looking for great images that define the areas people live and work in, as well as news and human interest pieces that raise the lid on what otherwise may remain a secret.”

Sue Souter, steering group chair and Stockport president of the GM Chamber, said the portal would be ‘unashamedl­y positive’.

She said: “We have uncovered some fantastic stories and this will be the heartbeat of the site.

“It will provide vital support to attracting people back to a re-energised town centre and much more connection­s between it and people who live in the district centres.”
