Hello, you may be looking in the wrong place for your noise source, I am an industrial electrical engineer with many years of experience, low frequency humming noises often come from electrical substations, I am assuming there is one of these in Strines, they are often an older brick built structure with transformers outside but sometimes inside not visible. Worth a look, these sub stations can make noise depending on the current electrical load, temperature etc.

Hope this helps.

The replacement candidate in Craig's area is Geoff Abell.  He canvassed our neighbourhood on Saturday last, so I expect he will be around soon.  I don't know about any other candidates.

As some of you may (by the sounds of things) have heard.
Up here on Windlehurst Road we are trying to form a support group for the park.

Within 24 hrs we set up a website, a Facebook Group and a Twitter account.
We have also started leaflet distribution and all shops in High Lane have window stickers in place.

As you will be aware, keeping momentum up is hard but we will try.

If anybody wants to 'get involved' with the Windlehurst Road group please let us know. We are looking for permanent Chair, Sec, Tres etc as we are now 'recognised' by the Council.

Anyway, think we all need to keep talking about these park issues regarding Arkwright, Compstall etc and share thoughts and ideas.

Our Website is (link corrected - Howard)

Please join the Facebook group at:

Our Twitter is: @WindlehurstPark or

And Our online petition (which we would like you to sign) is:

Many Thanks

Come along and have a go! Suitable for all. Good for circulation, toning up the body and providing a sense of flow and relaxation.

You're right - I haven't even seen anything about Craig Wright's replacement Liberal candidate, let alone anything about who else is standing.

Which councillors are up for re-election next month? It's usually two at a time isn't it?

I was driving through Bramhall yesterday and observed  Conservative election posters out for the forthcoming elections in May. Candidates name was Lisa Walker.

I haven't seen any posters  in Marple yet but I'm sure that they are on their way. I always vote, both general and local. At this stage I'm usually decided on local but this year I'm undecided. Personally I'm not that interested in party politics for local elections and I usually vote for the candidate as opposed for the party. 

However, I'm not absolutely sure who the candidates are this year. Whosoever they are they don't seem very high - profile.  I did get some stuff through the door but I can't find it now.

Anybody got any info/views.

Marple Carnival's web site has been given a make-over to reflect the 2014 theme of MUSIC THROUGH THE DECADES:

Looks like Windlehurst Park is another to have suffered removal of equipment for the same reasons as Marple Recreation Ground.

Local residents have reacted by setting up a new Friends Group, see here:

This is what is needed for Marple Rec too if there is any chance of getting new play equipment.

Good luck to the new Friends of Windlehurst Park!

I understand that 9 parks across Stockport have suffered a similar fate.
<<This is what is needed for Marple Rec too if there is any chance of getting new play equipment.>>

Well, come on you lot. No point in whingeing on here if you aren't prepared to roll up your sleeves and get involved. And yes, I have volunteered a few posts back. Not much use in the heavy lifting department but I've served on organising committees and rallied the troops in a number of ventures so I know the score. I'm prepared to be the secretary if we can whip up a committee.

Any offers? We could have a meeting in that nice little room in The Hatters.

There would seem to be two issues here. The playground equipment is one and the loos are the other. Without them the picnic area is doomed to non-use by families.
