Wharf Marple Project News:

The Wharf Marple Community Interest Company has provided a news update following visits to the wharf site by MP William Wragg and Lib Dem PPC and New Horizons Trustee Lisa Smart.

New Horizons Trustee Lisa Smart was so enthusiastic about The Wharf Project that she immediately brought along her cheque to secure her investment. Lisa, who is also Lib Dem PPC for Hazel Grove, said that this is great for New Horizons who will be moored alongside the Wharf and will be able to have a lovely cafe to take refreshments before and after their cruise. She said that New Horizons are very supportive of the project and The Wharf Project will enhance the whole experience for their cruisers.



MP WILLIAM Wragg was delighted to visit the Wharf Project on Monday and was impressed with plans to bring the iconic building back into use. William was very supportive and said how important he believe it is to secure the building for the community. William also announced that he would be investing in the project too.

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.

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.

Local CIC set to save iconic Grade 2 listed Warehouse at Marple Wharf

Marple residents and heritage enthusiasts are being offered the chance to save an historically important canal side building and convert it to a community and heritage attraction. The building has been at risk of conversion to residential, but a new plan would renovate The Wharf to be a Community Café and Heritage Centre, with a much-needed health and well-being facility too.



The Community Investment Scheme has been put together by The Wharf Marple Community Interest Company (CIC), a social enterprise committed to acquiring, renovating and bringing back into use the well-known former warehouse exclusively for the Marple community. The scheme aims to raise up to £175,000 to purchase the building and people will be offered the chance to invest in the project by purchasing Investment Bonds starting at £100/Bond up to a maximum of £25,000.
