Heaton Norris Needs You

A small but steadily growing group of local people from all walks of life (including residents, community workers, charities, employers/businesses, community police, the local vicar, a local historian and school governors) have formed LOVE HEATON NORRIS (Heaton Norris Civic Society) with a determination to help unite, transform and champion all things Heaton Norris. The group’s overriding aim is to make Heaton Norris a better place to live, work and play and they’ve come up with a specific set of objectives:

  • Unite the Heaton Norris community and improve community cohesion.
  • Support and encourage the work of local “champions”. These are people who are trying to make a difference in the area: residents, businesses, faith groups and churches, schools, community and charity groups, community police etc.
  • Encourage investment (public and private) in the area.
  • Encourage a sense of community and civic pride in Heaton Norris
  • Raise awareness of its key role in the history of Stockport and the wider region.

Initiatives that the group are either directly involved with or championing include: raising funds for the All Saints Church organ appeal, setting up a loveheatonnorris website to promote local projects and highlight the work being done by ‘community champions’ in the area, working to improve the reporting of crime and links with the police, development of a Saturday morning music school for young people, exploring the possibility of a War Memorial in Heaton Norris, and supporting and promoting community initiatives such as the Christmas Day lunch and hotpot supper events open to anyone lonely or in need of a meal. If you think you can help or would like to get involved, want your voice heard or just want to know more, the group would love to hear from you.
