Thank for your response Peter, I will "watch this space".

Further to my posting below I must stress that as far as I am aware any future use for the Hanbury's building will NOT include community use.

Things are happening but for various reasons they are still quite confidential at this stage. Congratulations should be given to the Marple Regeneration Partnership and Marple Business Forum who have both been applying pressure to the Coop who hold the lease and the landlords.
Don't hold your breath but keep your fingers crossed that there may soon be a positive outcome.

I've been looking at the messages about the old Hanburys shop in Marple. I past it today and was very worried about the state of the rotten window frames above  the shop.The big glass window on the apex at the front has a big crack in it.

I hope both the frames, glass and windows will withstand the strong winds and bad weather we have been having because I would not like to be stood nearby if anything collapses.

Still I suppose the owners of the site will have plenty of public liability insurance, well they will have, wont they?

It is a great pity that a building like Hanburys is falling into such a state of disrepair.  People are always complaining of young people 'hanging aound' the streets.  The building would be an ideal place for a youth club for them to spend some time.  Perhaps the Co-op could donate it to the community and other companies based in Marple be persuaded to donate some funds for decoration.  Such a club would create empolyment for a youth worker.  In reality, i will probably be seeing bulldozers knocking it down  before something useful for the community is done with it!!

I actually thought that the Co-op owned the building and they were either going to use it as storage.
 I then read in one of the papers that a clothes shop had bought it and was going open. Is this true '<img'>

It is an eyesore......if people are travelling through Marple from New Mills past the Navigation Pub and see that run-down building as one of the first sites it really cannot say a lot of good!! How long has it been like that now??.......too long! Good job it hasn't been accessed though by youngsters..yet...like the Jolly Sailor was!

<font color='#0000FF'>I know this one is old hat, but the other day I had a good look at that building, beware if you are walking to the park.
There is a load of debris on the roof, a traffic cone, shoes ,plastic bottles and several pieces of tree branches-all ready to strike you should you be so unlucky.

That cracked window- well I just hope that it does not collapse on some passer-by I can imagine a terrible injury might happen.

I think it is a great pity, that our elected Representatives have not sought some form of compulsory action against the owners of the site, or caused for the building to put right by the council, in the event of the owners failure to do so, or perhaps they have already done this!!!!!</font>

I think Hanburys should be turned into a hobby store e.g. Games workshop. We don't have a hobby store in marple and it would make a great sddition to the community, many people I know are into Model collecting and they agree with my proposal

There's not much been said on this topic for some time - does anyone know if there has been any developments yet?  The eyesore is getting worse, but the works at the park entrance are finished.

What would members of Marple want more another shop or a community style centre!

The Co-op is now in negotiation with a retailer to occupy the empty property (former Hanbury shop).
Lets hope the negotiations are successful and the shop is brought back into use and refurbished.
We did write to SMBC to enquire whether or not they might consider a partnership between themselves and the community to perhaps lease the premises as a resource for the benefit of Marple - the idea was met favourably and was to be investigated.
However, events have now overtaken this idea, "one day and another time perhaps".
