Good afternoon

**United Utilities**

With regards to recent leaks and water issues in the area, I have been in contact with a regional manager from United Utilities. We have discussed how to look at the best ways forward for where we live including individual issues such as getting water to priority users etc. We are going to meet up in February to look at a plan to improve services and make sure residents needs are met.

I'm going to leave this page open, if anyone has identified or had issues then please feel free to post them, or if it is a private matter feel free to message me privately and the regional manager will be happy to look into them.

I understand the frustration of some people with recent events and this is why I will be doing what I can to help, UU have been very open their willingness to assist.

Kind regards

This is a copy of a newsletter published by the Wharf Marple CIC on 30 December 2022:

30 December 2022: Happy New Year to all our fantastic Investors!

Dear Friends and Investors,

We hope you are all well and enjoyed the Christmas Festivities.

It has been a momentous year for The Wharf Marple CIC. Thanks to you, our fantastic Investors, we have achieved our ambition to take ownership of the Wharf warehouse. In addition the COF funding that we secured during the year meant that we have been able to start the building work. These are tremendous achievements and we would like to express our thanks to everyone involved in making this happen.

Building update

Those of you who live in Marple will have seen that work has started on the renovations of our Warehouse building. There have been the inevitable delays to starting due to waiting on permissions to start etc but our Contractor, Viking Build, Matt Skirvin and his team have been skilfully working round this and getting on with other parts not requiring permissions.

The building is really starting to take shape now and with a bit of imagination we can see what a fantastic space it will be.

Wharf Watch and new corporate sponsors

We will launch ‘Wharf Watch’ in the new year which will be your go to place to keep up to date with the building works and get to know all the people involved in the works. We are very pleased to announce that a local Marple company, Techni Heat, ( has generously agreed to sponsor Wharf Watch. Rich TV and Coolbox are Wharf Watch’s media partners and have also donated much of their time and expertise to create the films that you will be seeing over the next 12 months. A big thank you to all Wharf Watch’s sponsors.

You can view a short film showing the work that has been done to date below and in future visit to view the regular film updates.


The Community Investment Scheme will remain open until we have raised the full amount needed to buy, renovate and fit out. As the project is so visibly on its way more supporters are coming forward to invest in the Wharf Marple Project.

In the new year our grant funding work will continue and we hope to be successful in a bid to HLF in the next 6 months.

In the meantime we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year!
