Celebrating Stockport Pride

4th August 2022

Stockport celebrated in style last weekend, and the Vernon joined the party.

Right on the doorstep of our Support Office, after a two-year delay, Stockport Pride was back with a bang. 

The festivities started with a parade around Stockport Centre, followed by an afternoon of music on the Martyn Hett Stage, which the Vernon proudly sponsored. Acts included Jess Kemp, Xander, and Rowetta of Happy Monday fame. Then, only a few hours later, we watched the Lionesses make history by defeating Germany in the Women's Euro Finals. All in all, a fantastic day.

It was amazing to see so many people celebrating and supporting equality, inclusivity and diversity; sending a message of love and support to the LGBTQ+ community.

Events like this are what make our borough great, and here at the Vernon we're proud to support any event which promotes inclusion in our community.
