This year Cheadle Civic Society are celebrating their 50th anniversary, having encouraged higher standards of both architecture and planning in the village of Cheadle and the surrounding areas for half a century.

In addition, the Society also raises public awareness in the care and maintenance of Cheadle's many parks and listed buildings.

To recognise the Society's contribution over the last five decades, local MP for Cheadle constituency, Mark Hunter, has tabled an Early Day Motion (number 463) in Parliament which reads:

'That this House congratulates the Cheadle Civic Society on its 50th anniversary celebrations; notes the huge contribution that organisation and its members have made to life in the local community over that time; thanks all the many volunteers, old and new, for their valuable efforts; wishes the Society well for the next fifty years; and applauds the many months of hard work undertaken by the Society to renovate the historic Cheadle Green, first established as an official village green for the benefit of the whole community by an Act of Parliament in 1810.'

Commenting, Mark said:

'Cheadle Civic Society has been a well respected and dedicated protector of Cheadle village's best interests for many a year. I am always keen to acknowledge local volunteers, both past and present, who give their time for our wider community - I hope that this Parliamentary motion can act as a small tribute to their work.

'I am confident that the Society will continue their important work in making Cheadle village and the surrounding areas a better place to live for everyone.'
