We are all sadly aware of the mounting number of lives being lost due to Covid 19. Perhaps you are also aware of individuals who have lost their lives as a result of this pandemic and of their bereaved loved ones? Or perhaps the loss of someone has impacted on you directly?

All of us here at Stretford Public Hall would like to take this opportunity to offer our condolences and support to anyone who has been through this and to share some information about services.
