What's New?

This is the community web site for Marple in Cheshire. Its purpose, in addition to providing useful information to local people and potential visitors, is to try and contribute to the community spirit. It can hopefully do this by interaction with other interested Web users and by gaining enough feedback and support to shape it into a useful service.

If you have a Marple-related site which you would like me to add to the links, if you represent a local non-profit making organisation which you feel should be featured in the Community Interest pages, or 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 Forum & Notice Board and join in the discussions.
