We hold public meetings approximately once a month, to which we invite interesting and informative speakers. There are always opportunities to ask questions and join in discussions or participative activities.
Meetings are open to all. Stockport for Peace as a body does not have any political, religious or other standpoint, apart from a commitment to peace, understanding and justice. Individual participants on the other hand, have widely differing experiences, beliefs and views, a diversity which often results in lively and thought-provoking discssion.
Where we meet
Meetings are usually held at the Quaker Meeting House
- Cooper Street, Stockport SK1 3QL
The Quaker Meeting House is on the corner of Longshut Lane and Higher Hillgate,about 1/3 mile from Stockport town centre (Mersey Square). The entrance is through the Meeting House car park on Cooper Street, off Higher Hillgate. Pedestrians can enter through a gate on Longshut Lane.
To get there by public transport:-
By bus:192 and other routes along A6 - alight outside or opposite the Masonic Guildhall, walk south past the Co-op store, then turn left into Cooper Street by Brookfield House. The Meeting house is on the right hand side past
a private car park.
By train: turn right out of main station exit, then turn right on A6 up the hill past the Town Hall and continue for about 1/4 mile until you pass the Co-op store, or catch the 192 bus (see above).
In addition to meetings
We hold occasional peace stalls and vigils in Stockport and Marple (eg, for Hiroshima and Nagasaki or to remember those killed in current conflicts). We also take part in peace demonstrations and community events, both local and national, organised by CND and other sympathetic movements (see past activities).
