Welcome Hello – welcome back to Totally Stockport’s latest magazine, your guide to what’s happening in Stockport. I can’t quite believe that summer is nearly over and the autumn term is about to start but don’t worry, there is still a lot to look forward to in Stockport. Stockport’s Giant Leap Frog Art Trail is still on and has attracted literally thousands of visitors since the beginning of July. It’s been lovely to see so many families, friends and children walking the trail with their maps to discover all the beautiful giant frogs. We even added a few more to add a bit of extra fun to the trail! Did you manage to spot them all?

Unlike the basking frogs, Stockport is certainly not sitting back on its lily pad as plans to develop a new town centre village consisting of 3,500 homes and community amenities have been revealed by Stockport Council. Merseyway is getting a giant facelift too – take a look at the new entrance from Chestergate into at Adlington Walk. Stockport is famous for hats so we thought we’d look at what’s tops in hats this season on our fashion pages on pages 6&7. Another date for your diaries is Stockport’s first 3-day Food & Drink Festival. Between 6th – 8th September visitors will be treated to three days of tasty treats and tempting delights from over 70 traders. Simon Rimmer and local chefs will be demonstrating their cookery skills on stage on Saturday and Mr Bloom and his band will be entertaining the crowds on Sunday. A fun weekend not to be missed and something for everyone. Read more inside!

There’s plenty for the ladies to enjoy – we popped into Preen on Princes Street and took a peek through the pink door on Deanery Way for a bit of Pamper Me. The Vintage car show drew the crowds to Market Place and, despite the rain, Stockport Pride gave the visitors another reason to be proud! Cex celebrates 10 years, X-Gen VR brings a new experience, Stockport College unveils its plans, Stockport Underbanks wins lottery funding and Stockport’s Vernon building society explains why it is such an important part of our community. Have fun reading and we look forward to chatting again in November!
