Guernsey children sent to "new homes in Cheshire" 1940
Six hundred children of school age from the Channel Islands, who have been billeted in Stockport for the last fortnight, left the town yesterday for new homes in rural Cheshire. They have gone in school formation and each school will remain a separate entity in the particular village to which it has been sent. The evacuees have been billeted in public halls and Sunday schools for the past fortnight. Other 600, who are adults and children under school age. are for the present remaining in Stockport.
