by Karen Sangster in Marple, England, United Kingdom


Our vision is to make the Wharf a unique community heritage centre, cafe and fitness facility created to fill identified gaps in the markets in Marple. It will be a hub for the local community and visitors – where people can go to meet, learn, participate and be entertained. It will be a place to connect with fellow fitness enthusiasts, learn about Marple’s heritage and enjoy simple wholesome refreshment whilst taking in the picturesque views The Wharf aims to be the town’s most successful community facility in both commercial and visitor appreciation terms.  It will provide a range of facilities and must-see experiences for the community and visitors alike.  We will encourage social cohesion, communal activities, fundraising events and participation in local groups and fitness activities.
