Friends of Chadkirk Chapel meet to try to save the ChapelWe have a few days left to help the Friends of Chadkirk keep the Chapel open.

It was good to see so many people attending the Friends of Chadkirk's public meeting on Saturday.

The Chapel was packed; in fact, it was standing room only.

Chadkirk Chapel needs our support

People from Romiley, Marple and Offerton know Chadkirk Chapel as a bit of a ‘hidden gem’. As a Grade II listed building dating back to the 16th century it’s a simply stunning community asset.

I'll stand up for our NHS

Have you had problems accessing the right NHS services when you need them?

I've been listening to residents' experiences of trying to access urgent treatment locally.

One mother told me that she was sent on a 45 minute trip to Oldham to treat a child's bleeding head.  Another lady had a fall and spent hours in A&E, feeling terribly guilty as they watched the stressed and underfunded staff treat people with life threatening emergencies.

Lisa launches housebuilding survey

In a few weeks time, a new Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) is going to be published which will set out where housebuilding will take place across Greater Manchester over the next 20 years.

An earlier version of the plan was so unsuitable for our area that Stockport Lib Dems tried to pull out of the Greater Manchester plan so that we could draw up on our version for Stockport in consultation with local people - but Labour and Conservatives Councillors blocked us.

We will be judging the new plan against several tests set out below, and we want to know what you think the priorities for housebuilding in our area should be.
