Old Rectory Ice House unveiled

Dr. Peter Arrowsmith unveiled the Old Rectory Ice House today, which has been recently cleared out by a small group of hard working Heritage Trust volunteers. Temporary lighting was provided by a Trust volunteer, and refreshments were provided.
A new Stockport Town Centre Heritage Trail plaque was also unveiled.
The Trust has a new free A2 Town Centre Trail leaflet, which was also launched.
It was Rev Scoones' penultimate service today as he's retiring in April, and he also attended and said a few kind words after the unveiling.
