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.

The March draw of the Friends of Marple Memorial Park 50-50 Club has been made and the lucky winners announced.
To date £3,691 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 30 April, 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!
Starting in 1992, Mellor Open Gardens became a fixture in many people's calendar and traditionally took place every four years. Sadly, and we all know why, this wasn't possible in 2020 and last year's planned event had to be postponed. The Marple Website is delighted to be the first to announce that Mellor Open Gardens is back and to be supporting and helping to promote this event.
Instead of opening all day on a Sunday, the event will be spread across two afternoons from 2pm till 6pm on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July. Save the dates and watch this space for more details.

Independent contributions and articles on local history, attractions or other matters of interest to the local community are particularly welcome.
