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.

Last night (12 March) members of Friends of Marple Memorial Park, Marple Civic Society, Marple Neighbourhood Plan and the Scouts attended a “Marple Pool Visioning Session” for groups with links to Memorial Park to contribute our ideas and have our say on how this project should be shaped. It's now time for the whole community to do the same.
Once again things have taken far longer than we'd hoped and expected but following a pre-start meeting with Canvas Spaces yesterday (10 March 2020), Friends of Memorial Park are now in a position to announce that Marple Skatepark Phase II construction will begin early next month.
The February draw of the Friends of Marple Memorial Park 50-50 Club has been made and the lucky winners announced.
To date £1,043 has been awarded in prizes and a similar amount allocated to Park Funds, so this is a great way to support the volunteers who look after our wonderful park.
There is still time to subscribe before the next draw deadline of 31 March, so please read more about how you can support the Friends of the Park and be in with a chance to win a cash prize each month too!
If you represent a local non-profit making organisation that you feel should be featured in the Community Group Pages, if you'd like a banner to promote your local business, or if you have any ideas about how the site can be improved, please get in touch using the contacts page.
Independent contributions and articles on local history, attractions or other matters of interest to the local community are particularly welcome.
