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.
Looking for something still on the old site? Please use this link.
It's been head-down for most of January 2021 here at The Marple Website working on the upgrade / migration of the Friends of Marple Memorial Park website. Still a long way to go to get all those amazing task days moved across and there are still some projects and events to add too but there's plenty to read about to be going on with... marplememorialpark.org.uk
Stockport Samaritans serve as a listening ear for our local community, with ordinary people supporting those struggling to cope, round the clock, every single day of the year. Stockport Samaritans offer emotional support by person, by telephone or by email across the whole of Stockport, as well as neighbouring areas.
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.
If you enjoy what's here please register on the Marple Community Forum and Notice Board and join in the discussions.
