Local Issues / Re: POPPY APPEAL in Marple back on track for 2017!
« Last post by admin on Today at 10:05:14 AM »
It was great news to receive an email from Kevin this morning saying:

Hi Julie (The Marple Review) & Mark (The Marple Website),

We have the final figure in and we managed to break the 15K barrier!

We achieved £15,237.43 and we wouldn’t have reached that figure without your help.

"It really emphasises the power of the local media, because it was your initial involvement that produced all the volunteers for our campaign and your on going promotion of the street poppies etc. that really caught the imagination of the local public and businesses and without that we would be nowhere near the figure we achieved.

Our sincere thanks go to you all, you were brilliant.

We’re really grateful for your support."

The team have also sent a thank you to all the volunteers who helped out with collections, saying:

"The generosity of the local people has been overwhelming but we wouldn't have achieved that figure without all the hard work and dedication of you all.

Give yourselves a big pat on the back for a job well done."

Many thanks to all,

Kevin, Mike and Ron
Local Poppy Appeal Team

Planning permission was granted in 2016 to convert it to a mix of residential and a dog grooming parlour

Perhaps that is now happening.  Dog grooming seems to be the business of the day given a second parlour is opening in the precinct

The latest news (17th November) is that the Society completed the purchase of the Northumberland Arms on Friday 10th November - in their own words, "lock, stock and with plenty of room for barrels!"

They are starting a minor pre-Christmas refurbishment, and are working towards a re-opening date of Saturday 9th December 2017. Full details will be made available nearer to that date.

The Society is also in the process of generating share certificates, and will endeavour to get these posted out to share-holders within the next ten days.

There is a tremendous amount of work to do in the intervening period to get things ready, and with that in mind the Society is looking for volunteers from within their cohort of shareholders. They've had lots of messages via social media expressing a wish to get involved, so if you do want to lend a hand in the preparations on a voluntary basis, please get in touch via their web site contact page with some brief details of what you’d like to help with, whether you have any particular skills or expertise they can draw upon, your availability and your contact telephone number, and the Thumb Team will be in touch.Current and future tasks the Society are looking for immediate assistance with are:

Refurbishment works:
  • Cleaning team (interior of the building, and fixtures and fittings etc)
  • Wallpaper stripping / preparation for decorating team
  • Decorating team
  • Finishing & setting up team
  • Gardening party (initially, a really good clear out and cutting back overgrown areas etc)
Opening /Post opening:
  • Volunteer bar work
  • Volunteer café work
  • Volunteer catering work
  • Volunteers willing to set up and run various groups and activities are also more than welcome!
They are of course also in the process of hiring part time and full-time staff, so if you or anyone you know are looking for paid work at The Northumberland Arms, get in touch too.

I went up a couple of weeks ago for their Friday "Catch of the day" special. The food and service was outstanding.
