Local Issues / Re: RIP Chris Armitt - 6 December 2016

The Armitt family have asked me to advise people who visit the web site of the following sad news:

Former Marple Carnival organiser Chris Armitt has passed away very suddenly and very unexpectedly on Tuesday 6th December.

Chris played a huge role in the organisation of Marple Carnival Committee for more than 20 years and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

As you can imagine the family are completely devastated and heartbroken. They have asked to be allowed to grieve and come to terms with Chris's passing in private and that any messages and correspondence be passed through the web site (via this thread, PM to me or email admin@marple-uk.com).

The funeral arrangements haven't been set yet but will be published here when known. 

Here's a photo of Chris, taken during Marple Carnival 2011, showing how should be remembered:


RIP chris very nice person

Local Issues / Road Repairs/Road Humps
« Last post by CTCREP on Yesterday at 02:42:04 PM »
Currently the roads in Stockport are being repaired. This means scraping the top surface and in the process removing the Road Humps.   Current thinking is that Road Humps cause more problems than they solve and yet the Council will be replacing them.

I queried this with the Leader of the Council, Cllr Alex Ganotis, and was told the humps would be replaced. The reply went on:-

"For the humps to be removed you would need a petition from 51% of the residents supporting their removal.   If your Ward Councillors  were minded to proceed (as any removal would be funded from the allocated ward budget) the Council would carry out their  own consultation to confirm this is what the residents want.   If the removal of the humps is supported and the Councillors were happy to fund this, it is then legally advertised, after which period, they can be removed.  This process usually takes between 9 to 12 months.

Apart from the fact that the Council is probably spending our money unnecessarily by replacing the road humps, the Council Leader appears to require me to do his job of canvassing the local residents and then try to persuade the Council to find more money to remove them.

If you think replacing unnecessary road humps is detrimental to our district as well as wasting Tax Payers money then I ask you to contact the Council before it is too late.

Buy, Sell, Want, Help and Freebies in Marple / Hedging whips available
« Last post by nbt on Yesterday at 12:44:48 PM »
We over ordered the whips for our new hedge so have a few left over.

We have 6  hornbeam @ approx 100cm tall and 1 quickthorn, approx 120cm

£10 for the lot? Cost us over £20. Must get better at working out, I'd reckoned on 6 plants per fence panel and we only planted 5 each in the end
