Heaton Mersey is a lush green suburb of Stockport and Manchester set within an historic built environment located on the banks of the River Mersey. Its formal park, two nature reserves, ponds, river and wonderful vistas make it a popular place for people to walk, run, cycle, canoe, go horse-riding or just sit and enjoy being close to nature.
Heaton Mersey Village Conservation Group (HMVCG) is a volunteer-led community group focused on encouraging protection and care of Heaton Mersey’s conservation area and green spaces.
We have a Greenspace Volunteers group which meets up each month at various sites to help with their upkeep. We do this in partnership with the Stockport Council Greenspaces team, supported by Cheshire Wildlife Trust and the Orchard Project. Details of task days and events are posted below. You can also join our volunteers facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/HMGreenspaceVolunteers/.
We also raise funds for special projects, host events and raise awareness of local conservation area related issues. See our Posts and the HMVCG Facebook page to find out more about our recent activities.
