A MEMBER of Parliament has said he backs the idea of making a high street building in the Moorlands into a community asset, subject to consultation. Last week the Times and Echo reported that community group “Friends of the Royal Oak” were poised to place a bid for former pub The Royal Oak, which is situated on High Street in Cheadle. The venue, which dates back to the 18th Century, has been vacant for a number of years but the group envisages to turn it into a community focal point, should their bid be accepted – something MP Bill Cash has backed in principle.

A NEWLY-FORMED group in the Moorlands is poised to place a bid for a pub which dates back to 1783 with a view of making the building a community asset. The Royal Oak, located at 69 High Street in Cheadle, has been vacant for several years and community group “Friends of the Royal Oak” are now set to lodge a bid to buy the building and use it as a focal point for the people of the town. The organisation had a previous offer rejected but are set to submit a further one in the near future.
