The Garden House Santa Xmas Brunch: 22 & 23 December

Book via the garden house website: https://thegardenhousemarple.com/
Like the Civic Society says, the consultation is very limited and it appears that the bulk of the decisions about the cuts to the library services have already been made.

I think it is disgraceful that under 16s will not be permitted to use the library during the unstaffed times.  Young people should be encouraged to read as much as possible and this policy, to my mind, is wholly unacceptable.  My son was an avid reader when he was younger, and I used to order him several books a week from the library.  He was always asking me if his books were ready for collection, and he used to love walking up to the library on his own to collect them.  It saddens me to think that other children won't be able to engage with  the library in this way.

The next Make it Marple Market is a change to the previously advertised event:

2018 Marple Poppy Appeal Update

Today during counting the Marple Poppy Appeal team has reached a very poignant figure of £19,800, which is very emotional as it relates so perfectly with the 198 men they have honoured this year.
