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 Internet has changed beyond all recognition since the Marple Website was first launched on 6 October 1998. However, 21 years later, the main aims and objectives of the site remain true to the original: “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.”
Despite 228 comments of objection from Marple residents last time they consulted on Open+ Stockport Council is now consulting on further cuts to staffed hours at Marple Library and others across the borough.
The most important thing is that you Have Your Say! If you support this and want to choose your favourite time slot, then go ahead.
But if you don't agree with proposals for further reduction of staffed hours at Marple Library here are some suggestions.
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.
