Along with Pam King, Keith Holloway and John Pantall, I was absolutely thrilled to see the grand opening of the new Hall Street Green in Cheadle (behind St Mary’s Church). Stockport Mayor Wendy Meikle was on hand to cut the ribbon and declare the Green officially open.
The three-year project has been driven by local residents – ably led by Penny Allwork – and supported by Stockport Council. A grant of over £40,000 was raised to transform the Green into a lovely local feature and a real asset for the area.
Hall Street Green was created in about 1970 when two old streets of terraced houses were demolished; but it was never an area of great beauty. Thanks to the hard work of residents, all that’s changed.
