The French town of Haybes has brewed a beer in honour of Stockport whose residents helped to rebuild its homes during WW1.

Meantime beerThe French town of Haybes in the Ardennes was decimated in August 1914 following a bomb strike killing 60 people, according to a report by mancunianmatters.co.uk.

Stockport and other UK town and cities pledged to help rebuild Haybes and other towns in the Ardennes.

To mark the centenary of the bomb strike, the people of Haybes have brewed a special beer called Stockport & Haybes to say thank you.

Speaking to the Manchester news site, Councillor Chris Murphy, the Mayor of Stockport, said: “It is very important that we remember the war and the effects that it had on families in Stockport, Britain and around the world.

“Stockport is proud of its modern day international links which seek to bring together individuals, but recent contact by residents of Haybes has highlighted a much older link.”
