Seddon helps to build Stockport's community spirit

Thanks to the Aurora Stockport team, a local community group, Step Ahead, is to receive handmade planters made for them by the nearby Stockport Community Shed group.

The Community Shed has been working hard making large wooden planters for local Muslim group Step Ahead, with materials provided by North West based builder and developer, Seddon.

The work has taken place thanks to Seddon, who are currently constructing Stockport Council’s new industrial park, Aurora Stockport, bringing the two community groups together.

Stockport Community Shed is a group of people who enjoy DIY and meet with other members, helping to combat social isolation and increase well-being, over their shared interest. Supported by Stockport Homes, they are a non-profit organisation which helps local community members build confidence through fun activities.

"Everyone at Step Ahead would like to take this opportunity to thank Seddon and the Stockport Shed group for helping us with our gardening project by supplying the wooden planters."
Shareen Shazad, Step Ahead Community Group



Shareen Shazad from Step Ahead Community Group, said: “Everyone at Step Ahead would like to take this opportunity to thank Seddon and the Stockport Shed group for helping us with our gardening project by supplying the wooden planters. It means that our members now have the opportunity to grow flowers, vegetables and fruit, helping to introduce children to the outdoor world as well as promoting healthy eating. It will also help to improve their confidence as well as teaching them new skills.

Robin Burman, Chair of Stockport Homes’ board, said: “The work by Community Shed and Step Ahead is a fine example of community groups coming together for the benefit of the people they represent. We are also grateful for the support of Seddon for their involvement with the groups.”

 “It’s great to hear about two local groups both benefiting from the work taking place at Aurora Stockport.  As well as transforming the physical landscape across Stockport, our investment work has at its heart a vision of creating new jobs and opportunities for residents across our town.  This is an example of these benefits in practice,” commented Councillor Kate Butler, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council.

Aurora Stockport is transforming an area of Stockport into a vibrant employment area.  As this work on the Council’s development continues, it will ensure priority that the community and residents benefit from the work taking place.

Seddon is also working with Stockport Homes on a number of other initiatives to support community groups in the area.
