The centre is now open but on a small scale. All groups have been contacted to explain the situation. In order to keep in line with current health guidance, we have carried out a range of safety measures including:

  • completing a risk assessment with SMBC
  • installing hand sanitisers and other safety measures, such as the kitchen not being in use
  • limiting the number of people permitted in the centre (the MAXIMUM is 24 people and this includes group leaders and volunteers)
  • arranging additional cleaning schedules with SMBC

ALL groups must complete a risk assessment, and have it approved by SMBC, before a return date can be agreed. Groups will return in a phased manner, this will be explained more fully in the letter to each group. 

For the foreseeable future, we will NOT be accepting any party bookings. 

If you have any questions, please use the Contact button.

The park and Trans Pennine Trail remain open and fresh air is still free! Please adhere to social distancing....

Thank you.

Cheadle Heath Community Association invites you to join us!

The community centre has been on this site since it opened in 1936. Originally named the Gorsey Bank Pavilion, it has gone through a few name changes before it became the Rose Walker Community Centre in recent years.

The centre is run by a group of dedicated local volunteers, the Cheadle Heath Community Association, and there is always room for more! Do get in touch if you have a few hours a month spare and would like to get involved with taking the centre forward as a vibrant community hub.

The Cheadle Heath Community Association is a registered charity - 1002266.

The centre also hosts a monthly meeting of the Friends of Cheadle Heath Park.

Support for Friendly Fridays

We are delighted to have been awarded grants from both Stockport Local and the Big Lottery Community Fund towards our Friendly Fridays project!

Friendly Fridays opened in February 2018 and has gone from strength to strength. It is open every Friday, 10 - 3, and is a community drop-in for all ages. You can find out more on our What Is Going On page. 

Well done to the fantastic Project Leads and all the volunteers who have worked so hard to make it a success. May the group continue to grow and be a place where everyone feels welcome.

First signs of spring

Last November over 1000 bulbs were planted in Cheadle Heath Park, following a mass plant organised by Friendly Fridays.  The bulbs were provided by the Council's Greenspace team and included Bluebells, Snowdrops, Daffodils and Tulips.

The first of the Snowdrops has appeared, bringing with it a sign of spring to come.  

Well done to Friendly Fridays and everyone involved.



The Rose Walker Community Centre

We have a spacious hall for hire, with a good number of tables and chairs for your use. We have recently had a brand new heating system installed, as well as a new kitchen with range cooker. 

We also have a white board for your use, as well as flip charts, a screen and projector. 

Whilst we currently do not have wi fi, we are working on having it installed as soon as possible!

We have our own car park, and are situated next to the beautiful Cheadle Heath partk, and are very close to the Trans Pennine Way.

The Centre can be hired for parties, meetings, training courses, regular bookings or specail events..

Please call 0161 429 0490 (Fridays between 10.30am and 3pm) for more information or email us from our Contact Page.



Next to the Trans Pennine Trail

The Rose Walker Community Centre is just minutes away from the footbridge over the river giving access to the Trans Pennine Trail.  Why not call into Friendly Fridays at the Centre, every week, 10am to 3pm and then have a walk along by Stockport's River Mersey?

At Stockport the Trail has two options: one taking in the attractions of the town centre - including the unique Hat Museum and Air Raid Caves, or the quieter route to the north of the town. The trail then leaves Stockport through the leafy Tame Valley.

For further information see the Trans Pennine Trail website.
