Stockport Council has opened a book of condolence for residents to pass on their thoughts to the victims and their families following Monday night’s tragic events at the Manchester Arena.
The book of condolence can be signed in person at the reception area of Stockport Town Hall (Edward Street, SK1 3XE) during normal opening hours – 8.30am–5pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.
An online book of condolence is also available on the Council website.
Stockport Town Hall will continue to fly the Union flag at half-mast.
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 to give people from our community the opportunity to pay their respects to those affected by this monstrous act.
“The book 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.”
