I don't mind you having opinions but I do mind you getting facts wrong. Local Authorities have not had any control or involvement in/over housing allocations for many years now. As you say that's a fact.

I didn't specify a time but the point is that the town has declined over the years and in my opinion having an Asda here isn't going to improve things. I do concede that I was a bit over the top in my comments about Memorial Park though. It isn't as bad as I made out so I retract that. Believe it or not I like Marple and most of the people I know who live here. The bad eggs are few but it worries me that some people seem pleased to be getting an Asda. Is it wrong or snooty to aspire to something better?

And this attitude, my friends, is why Marple gets its reputation of being snobbish and elitist. "Social engineering" and "rapid decline"...what are you on about? The true indicator of how desirable a place is to live is house prices which are holding up extremely well in the area. Marple is in a fantastic area for outdoor pursuits, has extremely well-attended sporting clubs (football, rugby, swimming), a vibrant Scouting and Guiding movement and many other things to recommend it. Doing the place down just because Asda is coming here to replace a moribund Co-op is pathetic.

First of all let me say that the only pathetic thing on here is the bully boy attitude and name calling directed towards anybody who dares to post an opposing view to your own. I'm not a regular contributor and don't intend to be, I just came back out of interest to see how much vitriol I had generated and I wasn't disappointed. All I can say is that I have lived in Marple most of my life and it has gone downhill. Call it snobbish if you like, names from bigoted trolls hiding behind computer screens isn't going to hurt me, but if your house being burgled, your car being vandalised, your family being verbally abused in the street by yobs just for walking past, most of the decent shops closing and being replaced by pound shops, charity shops and Asda is your idea of a fantastic area then good for you. I'm not saying that Marple is all bad, it does have some very good things going for it as you say, but believe me, Asda will not be putting anything in the plus column. The co-op isn't great either but if you really want to live in an area that other people aspire to visit and/or live in there were much better outcomes that could have happened. If wanting to live in a nice, peaceful area with decent shops is negative and snooty then thats me. And if you want to know about social engineering look into the council's policy of moving problem families out of sink estates into 'nicer' areas such as Marple in the often misguided hope that they will lift their standards. Some may very well do, but if a mob of those that don't are moved into the house next to you I wonder if you will still feel you are living in a fantastic area. Asda targets poor areas. Fact. That it has targeted Marple demonstrates that Marple has slipped or is seen as slipping towards that category. OK thats it. Let the name calling and cheap shots begin again, though before you do, I suggest you visit the Memorial Park (if you can get through all the dog muck and discarded Greggs' bags) and spend a moment contemplating those who gave their lives to defend my right and yours to have an opinion and a voice.

Stockport Old town website went live this morning http://stockportoldtown.co.uk/

Edit: I'm told this is very much a soft launch as they flesh out detail, the launch will be in august. The logo on this site is being used throughout the old town and a bill board campaign for a Stockport Festival starts as well.

IMHO this needs to be co-ordinated with an attempt to bring in retail businesses, in fairness, there are new businesses opening around the market area but what must not happen is that all we get are unsustainable whimsical charity types that have no chance of paying their way.

And for those who are unaware of it, website is http://www.blackthornmusicfestival.co.uk/

Compstall, this weekend.

Tickets are available at:
Compstall post office
Romiley newsagents
Double 4 records glossop
Double 4 records marple
Stationary supplies marple
Piccadilly records manchester
And direct from The Blackthorn Office on 07591004691


Not my cup of tea (but then I'm old enough to remember Woodstock - just) but it looks like fun if it's your sort of thing. Inexpensive too.

Wide choice of food. Might be worth going just for that. Here's hoping it's been sourced locally.

Have good time.

I've only just realised about this, was the local marketing a little too low key?

It's a great line up, right on our doorstep - Support it!!!
