Marple Poppy Appeal 2020

Poppy Appeal plea to local business owners

Unfortunately, due to the Covid19 situation, this year will be very different for the Marple Poppy Appeal, as there will be no poppies to sell! However, inspired by the NHS Rainbows that have been on display throughout Marple, the Poppy Appeal Team has designed a very special A3 size poster for people to display in their windows to show their support.

The Team realise this year has been tough for everybody but we would like to ask you to consider making a small donation to help us raise the funds to cover the cost of these posters.

Wall of Remembrance in Memorial Park

The Marple Street Poppies have been a huge success in recent years and for 2020 the team has decided to create a Wall of Remembrance, displaying all the Street Poppies together. The main display will be in Marple Memorial Park, on the Bowling Green fence not far from the war memorial and the timeline display on the railings of Hollins House.

There will also be Walls of Remembrance at Compstall and Mellor.

Remembrance Service

It is certain that Remembrance Services throughout the country will not be able to go ahead in the traditional way this year. As yet there are no plans confirmed for any of the normal local services but as soon as arrangements are known they will be shared here.

Poppy Wreaths

Wreaths can still be ordered from the Poppy Appeal Team via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
