Perhaps four kinds of people : the people who get things done which should be done; the people who get things done which are not necessarily wise , people who moan about the people who get things done which are not necessarily wise and people who moan about people who get things done regardless of whether it was wise or not.

It goes without saying that the people who moan about the people who get things done do so because they think they are 'unwise'.  The point I was trying to make is that you moaners were to get off your backsides and join those who 'get things done' then maybe we would then be able to benefit from your 'wisdom'. 😏

Which is a consequence of austerity and local government cuts - think carefully who you vote for

Agreed, unfortunately a lot of the electorate don't link the lack of council services with the Government cuts, they think it's down to the council.

That is the unfortunate consequence of having some unaccountable body taking over responsibility for the Rec. Should have pointed him in the direction of  the containers they put in the precinct which are in desperate need of a little TLC.

Certain gentleman from Incredible Edible/MESS group was watering orchard on REC this evening. On 3 occasions he parked his car on the REC's green. When I approached him and warned him that he is not allowed to park the car on parks green he arrogantly told me : " I don' care! " and continued to water the trees.

I'm not entirely sure how fruit bearing trees that help turn carbon dioxide into oxygen and fruit can ever be classed as a mistake ;)

I don't have a problem with the concept of the orchard. However, I do think that they made a massive mis-step in placing it where they did, right in the middle of the flat, fairly well used, part.

Here's another recommendation for Trident who sorted me out for a new home security system. They did offer to repair our old one, but things have moved on so much since the old one was fitted that we ended up going for a whole new system. The two guys from Trident were extremely knowledgeable, very helpful and keenly priced. Thoroughly recommended.

Very good they will supplement an invaluable local facility.

I'm just surprised our resident doom & gloom merchants haven't put their negative spin on it yet, i.e.  how will the grass be cut with the posts there ?, who is going to maintain the posts in years to come ?, wont it only attract unsavoury types ?, what if someone walks into them in the dark ? why were we not consulted ?

I presume they're apple trees.  Anyone planning a Marple Community Orchard Cider?  Would be a way to bring everyone together!  Or we could just tarmac it.  Whatever.

Something needed doing about the condition of the Rec. That doesn't mean doing anything will do. Many people think planting the orchard was a bad idea and not what was needed and was rushed without proper debate and the whole thing hijacked by a small group which was not representative. Undoubtedly, the people responsible did and do sincerely believe it was a good idea.  In maintaining the orchard, they should behave responsibly and remain polite at all times. Let's just keep calm and wait a few years until it becomes abundantly clear whether the orchard is a success, or as many believe, a mistake.
