Surely "we" is whoever wants to be involved. Fantastic idea!

No the "we" in the op implies that there is a group of we's set up different to the we's who might turn up to help. I think it's a perfectly ligament question to  the op who this group of we is that I and others are being invited to help.

Volunteers are needed for the repair and recycle events which I hope will start in Marple very soon.  We need volunteers who can greet people and make tea, as well as people who can fix things.  Please complete the following form if you can help in anyway, and see Marple Repair and Recycle Facebook page for further information:

I was not saying there are no retail options, I was pointing out that if you have poor mobility and don't have transport it is more convenient in the centre, especially if you have your papers delivered and need to go in to pay for them.  In the centre there is only Mccolls and Asda that sells papers and Asda do not deliver.

You speak though as if there are no retail options in the centre of Marple. Clearly there are several. 

It must not be nice for the staff (I have been made redundant in the past, it is not a great experience) but the customers will find other options.  Asda is open longer than McColls and I am sure stocks everything McColls do.  It is only a few minutes walk away.  There will be a new convenience store opening at the end of Market Street at some point as well.  It's not a retail wasteland.
Most people will go in there for just  cigs lottery papers sweets .

Rose Hill is not in the centre of Marple, in my opinion that is why this shop is closing as they have taken over the Spar shop at Ross Hill, it is a case once again of a big company not thinking about customers or staff.

Well it is tiny, and the prices aren't great.  And given there will be something opening up at the Albert Schools at some point...

Anyone wanting to have their paper delivered could try Marple News at Rose Hill.  I think they do delivery.

To correct myself, I meant Marple News opposite the Texaco garage, not Rose Hill.

Who will pay for the running and upkeep for this if it goes ahead [Hope not the councill]

Condate is correct, it's all on the site referred to in the original post and it is worth you reading the Business Plan for more info. But in a nutshell, it is intended to be self-funding and in the longer-term to return a small dividend to shareholders. It is very much like the way that the Northumberland Arms was funded by the community, which has been a fantastic success.

The Business Plan is here: http://www.thewharfmarple.co.uk/gallery/tmw%20business%20plan%20.pdf

What about all the business,  church halls etc that currently fulfil the same role.

Are we all happy to see them lose income from lettings etc.
