Spirit of Normandy Chairman, Richard Palusinski, attended the launch event of Stockport Normandy Veterans Legacy, which was held in the Ballroom of Stockport Town Hall on Thursday 20 June. The organisers engaged with local schools and encouraged them to study aspects of the Second World War, including the Normandy Landings. A large number of schools were involved and all exhibited their work at the event. The children were enthusiastic and had really taken an interest in the subject. A group of schoolchildren dressed as evacuees sang wartime songs. A great deal of effort had gone into the launch and the event. Linda Varley, the Administrator for the project, was delighted with the response and looks forward to the next steps.
