Stockport Times excerpts - 4/05/06

The Pavilion Community Centre, Essex Avenue, Cheadle Heath, is looking for help in celebrating its 70th anniversary. The big day is Aug 1 but members and workers from past or present are asked to get in touch before the date . Organisers want to create a display charting the centre's history and are looking for old photos, stories and memorabilia. Anyone who can help should call Rose Walker on 476 2819.

The Marple lock system will provide the inspiration for SMBC's entry into the flower bed competition at this year's RHS Flower Show at Tatton Park.
Opened in 1804, the Marple locks comprise a series of 16 locks that link the upper and lower parts of the Peak Forest Canal.

Raise your hat to redevelopment
[These plans were reported previously, use the search box in the top left to find the details of this proposal - Bill]
Two 19C Hillgate Hatmills are to be redeveloped in a multi-million pound residential housing project, within the Hillgate Conservation Area.
Both buildings are considered to be of significant local architectural and historic interest and stand adjacent to the Grade I listed St Thomas's Church.
A former production works for William Harrison and Sons on St Thomas's Place, the mills are to be converted into a mixture of one and two-bed apartments.
Planning permission was given for the project at the Tame Valley Area Committee on Monday evening.
