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.
