This is the community web site for Marple in Stockport. It was started in 1998 to provide useful information for local people and potential visitors and to contribute to the fantastic community spirit that abounds in this small canal town on the edge of the peaks. It continues to do this with regular updates and lots of interaction with the local community.

2017 was a record-breaking year for the newly formed Marple Poppy Appeal Team and an amazing sum of over £15,000 was raised for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
2018 is an extra special year for the Poppy Appeal across the country as it is the Centenary of the End of WWI. The Marple Team are working even harder to build on last year's success.
The 2018 Marple Food and Drink Festival will have a wide variety of stalls and plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
This year stallholders are showcasing even more delicious artisan products made in Marple and the local area, so it's a day out not to be missed.
The event gets under way at 10am on Saturday September 22 and will continue until about 4pm.
Since Marple Neighbourhood Forum was formed in April 2016 its members have been working hard on the development of a plan for Marple. "Our Marple Plan" is now at the stage where it is ready for Public Consultation and the Forum needs as many local people as possible to get involved by reading and commenting on the draft plan.
