Cheadle may no longer be a village in the strict sense of the word, but there are still many people who greatly care about the area and who want to preserve the best from the past, as well as make positive improvements to ensure a better future.
This was the primary criteria of the Cheadle Civic Society when it was formed in 1964, with the founding members having the main aim of stimulating public interest in the beauty, history and character of the village and its surroundings.
The Society has always been entirely independent, accessible and non-commercial and has no connections to any political party, and over the years, the many hundreds of people who have become members have all played their own role in helping to make Cheadle a better place to live.
To help promote the work of the Society, this web site was created towards the end of 2009 with most of the editorial content being provided by Alan Jabez (former editor of the Cheadle Civic Society Newsletter) and Pat Seddon, local historian and also a former Newsletter editor.
