Stockport standing together with Manchester

This online book of condolence is to enable residents of Stockport to pass on their thoughts to the victims and their families following the tragic events at the Manchester Arena on Monday 22 May.

Councillor Alex Ganotis, Leader of Stockport Council, said: “Since the atrocious and barbaric events that took place at the Manchester Arena on Monday evening, I – like many others – have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of grief from around the world.

“It has been decided that a book of condolence be opened at Stockport Town Hall and online to give people from our community the opportunity to pay their respects to those affected by this monstrous act.

“These books will allow people to express their feelings and show support to everyone involved, especially those who have lost loved ones or been injured and traumatised.”

    Music should be a release, a time to let go and leave the world behind for a while not become a scene from a horror film.

    Our heartfelt sympathies go to those families who have lost someone dear or are in hospital recovering from their dreadful ordeal.

    Thanks go to the emergency services personnel, NHS staff, taxi drivers, staff at the arena and members of the public including the homeless people who have shown the kindness and love that is the real Manchester.

    We will keep a candle burning for you all
