I was delighted to visit Rowlinson Knitwear earlier this month on National Employee Ownership Day (1st July) to celebrate the company’s employee-owned status.
Rowlinson Knitwear is a specialist knitwear company based on Woodbank Mills, off Turncroft Lane and the firm has been employee-owned since last year. I was thrilled to attend the celebratory event, which included a special balloon release.
Last week, I got the chance to meet up with local Stockport residents, Mark Angus and Sarah Lloyd, in Westminster for Cancer Research UK’s Parliament day. Mark and Sarah are both volunteer ambassadors for Cancer Research UK and they spoke to me about the new campaign by Cancer Research UK to remove junk food advertising from TV before the 9pm watershed.
Since the momentous vote to leave the EU I have had many conversations and emails from people expressing their concerns and worries about the future.
It has divided people in Stockport as elsewhere with young people particularly upset about the result.
