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.
Organisers of Open Gardens in Marple are appealing for volunteers to help at various events and activities leading up to and including the main event itself over the weekend of 7th & 8th July. Web pages are also being prepared with introductions to all the gardens, interactive maps to help you find them, information about participating refreshment outlets and advice about parking.
So keep your eye on The Marple Website for latest news!
The Marple Town Centre Defibrillator has now been installed. We'd like to send a big thank you to electrician Mike Beese of TBG INSPECTION SERVICES (pictured) for providing installation support to the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator Project.
The Defibrillator is now registered with the NW Ambulance Services and "Live" in service. A call to NWAS on 999 will get you the access codes if they agree that you need to use it.
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.
