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 Marple Website is delighted that sales of the Marple Canals and Waterways Calendar 2021 will raise funds for Friends of Marple Memorial Park. Published by Stationery Supplies, with 12 stunning seasonal scenes by local photographer Colin Hughes and printed by HB Printing, the calendar is a truly local initiative.
This is the third year that Sarah at Stationery Supplies has published her calendar and used the opportunity to support local causes too. The 2019 and 2020 offerings raised £100 each for Marple Carnival and New Horizons respectively. This year Sarah conducted a social media poll after Friends of Memorial Park and Mellor Country House were nominated by her customers. With 62% of the vote going to Friends of the Park, they will benefit from the 2021 calendar sales but it's not all bad news for Mellor Country House as they will benefit from the 2022 calendar instead.
Sarah's efforts to put Marple on everyone's wall over the last three years resonates with the Marple Website, as it was a task undertaken from 2003 until 2010 with our own Marple and Mellor Calendar, raising £4,700 for local causes. So it's great that Sarah has stepped up to fill that gap.
