About Woodford

Woodford is a semi-rural, ribbon village in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester, England. It lies just over 5 miles south of Stockport and a tad under 11 miles south east of Manchester on the A5102 road. Woodford is the most southerly point of the Greater Manchester region, close to the Peak District and South Pennines. Wilmslow is to the west, Poynton to the east and Bramhall to the north, Broadly speaking, Woodford consists of approximiately 550 residential properties (as of 2015), some retail outlets, a Church, a traditional pub, a golf course, a War Memorial Community Centre, working farms and open farmland. It also boasted (since 1924), until 2011 the famous Woodford Aerodrome. This will become a new residential development over a period of some ten years, work commenced here in 2015.

Historically part of Cheshire, throughout the Middle Ages Woodford was a hamlet in the parish of Prestbury. It was incorporated into the Urban District of Hazel Grove and Bramhall in 1939 and then into the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in 1974.

We will be celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee on Sunday 5th June from 2pm. Do come along and join us.
This historic event will reflect on Her Majesty’s reign, and her impact on the UK and the world since 1952.

WWMCC will be marking the occasion on Sunday 5th June with tea, coffee, cakes, pimms, prosecco, community spirit and fun. Join us at the Centre from 2pm onwards to help celebrate this auspicious occasion. We are aiming for a convivial, relaxed event, Woodford Players will also be entertaining us with some humourous duologues during the afternoon and if we are blessed with good weather the kids can play on the field - what's not to like?

The event is free to enter, we simply ask for donations just as we do at our lovely Macmillan event in September. All donations will be divided equally and given to two local charities, Beechwood Cancer Care Centre and The Thursday Club in Bramhall.
