Posted on behalf of Scott Lighten & the Group described below, these are handouts they have recently distributed around the Jolly Sailor area:PLEASE NOTICEYour community needs you!
Do you wish you had a real opportunity to affect your area?
Do you have alternative ideas on how the council/local area should be run? Would you like to see a space in Marple where people can meet to exchange ideas support each other? Â Dare we dream of our own space for creative projects, art, music, discussion and community groups? Â Dare we dream of a community social centre, owned and run by the people of Marple themselves for the benefit of all?We dare you to dream with us - Let us discover our vision together!Do You Wish You Had an Opportunity to Effect Your area?
A Community Social Centre could:
Â· Help provide a forum for communication of ideas and issues.
Â· Foster awareness of important modern issues/problems.
Â· Promote a sustainable future for our childrenâ€™s children.
Â· Provide a platform for personal and community empowerment.
Â· Create a centre of focus for service to the community.
Â· Provide a cultural venue for music, art and creative projects for people of all ages.YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU!
We need your ideas and enthusiasm! Â Please contact us at A_FEW_OF_THE_MANY@HOTMAIL.COM
and look out for more info soon!
We are a group who believe in compassion
are the best methods of tackling social issues. Â We have been developing our ideas for a community centre to help alleviate problems such as youth crime. Â We see the Jolly Sailor
as an ideal venue for such a project. Â Currently developers want to demolish the Jolly Sailor, one of the oldest buildings
in Marple. Â This is an impractical money making scheme which is in no way designed to benefit the people of Marple. Â The building was sold to the current owners under the pretence that they would renovate the building and retain its social function. Â But instead they have done their best to make the property appear run down to encourage you to back their demolition plans.
Please back our objection by writing to the Director of Environment & Economic Development, Hygarth House 103, Wellington Rd South, Stockport SK13TT.
These have to be in by this Friday so if you would like a representative to hand deliver your letter please phone or text 07752562441.
PS sorry for the short notice planning applications are never well publicised!
