Local Issues / Re: Marple Skatepark Fund-raising target of £100,000 Reached!

News on Marple Skatepark Phase II:

We have been waiting for some considerable time to get a confirmed start date from the Council's Greenspace Team and the contractor Canvas Spaces who upgraded the skatepark for us in 2017 and will carry out the Phase II skatepark works (not the MUGA - that will be done by a different contractor after the skatepark works are completed).

The options most recently being considered were to start immediately after the Carnival and complete by the end of July, or, if that was not possible, to wait until after the school summer holidays. We were advised earlier this week that the start has now been revised to after the school holidays. A pre-construction meeting is to be arranged for August, after which we should be able to tell you more.

It is frustrating how long this is all taking but please bare with us - it should be worth it in the long run. In the meantime, we hope users enjoy the skatepark over the summer and stay safe!

Would anybody know of somebody I could hire next Saturday at around 1:30pm ?

I'd like the vehicle to be clean with a presentable driver! 1 short journey from Hawk Green to Mellor (5 people max).

Please let me know any suggestions.
