Update on Stockport local events and the property market


Welcome to February's edition of Enjoy Local - SK1-2-3.

This month's articles include: is a Stockport Author set for Hollywood fame? A great local initiative celebrating 20 years of the Hat works museum, and a potentially huge piece of news which could change the Stockport landscape. I have also included three industry based articles which may be of interest to you. 

I hope you enjoy this month's articles and, as always, I am more than happy to discuss any of the content in more detail with you - andrew@julianwadden.co.uk

Many thanks,
Andrew
