2014 Making a start on our new garden
The Community Pay Back Team led by their Supervisor Dave did a fantastic job preparing the plot and even put some of our plants in for us. Thanks, we really appreciate how you helped us! Naughty lads and lasses they may be, but they really put their backs into it (literally!). David Huber and Stephen Forde from Stockport MBC who oversee our SEMCrP meetings along with Dave Pragnall our local PCSO popped along to inspect the garden afterwards.

New road, new car park, new start!
Naturally we were all very upset about the demolition of our prize-winning gardens especially after all the hard work and many hours spent developing them but, after many misgivings about the new plans, we decided not to give up and to start work on the new plot that had been given to us. The developers put a new path and kerb edging in as well as bringing in a lorry load of topsoil to kick start the work. The new road layout has not been ideal because of its 'chicane-like' twists and turns but the new car park has been a hit with motorists and more people are now using the station.
We are now hopeful for the future!
2014: Demolition of our Gardens
Plans for a new road and car park announced
In 2014 plans were announced by TMBC to re-route Hattersley Road West/East as well as the demolition of the existing station car park. It was intended to build a new car park which would be light and open with additional CCTV cameras. The added security and re-routing of public transport would encourage more people to 'park and ride' and increase footfall.
