Hopefully, the state of our roads won't get lost within the ideology of an integrated transport system. We currently rely on them more than ever and we can't simply ignore this fact.

Good morning forum readers

I have recently been elected to the working group of TfGM and will be attending future meetings. I attended an initial briefing yesterday and the following areas (amongst others) are being looked into:

Air quality plan, identifying high count areas and looking into how these areas can be dealt with. This will be part of a Manchester 2020 plan and will be signed off in this coming year. There are a variety of avenues being researched at present into how this is managed. Personally I think this is a great idea, the environment is something I feel needs given the correct respect and assistance.   

Tram connection strategy, prioritising routes such as Marple to Stockport (I am a firm believer this is essential), Marple to Manchester, Stockport to the airport and extending the East Didsbury line into Stockport and Hazel Grove.

Bus reform, changing operations of buses through Mayoral reform and looking into how services can be improved and become more user friendly, identifying new routes and protecting what is already running.

Cycling and walking schemes, there is a £160 million challenge across Greater Manchester for local Councils to secure funding for improvements to cycling and walking routes. I am hoping to get more details of this in June.

TfGM are also looking into taking over some smaller stations (to start with) to create a uniform approach to standards and quality. They are also looking at larger hub stations such as Stockport becoming more user friendly with more shops and cafes, perhaps more akin to York (this is my example, not one given to me).

I will update accordingly when I attend my 1st official meeting in June. Constructive comments as always are welcome but please bear with me if I cannot answer until I have been to my 1st full meeting. I will take any questions with me and do my best to respond as soon as I can.

Thanks for reading this

Kind regards

Why are you disposing of 8 month old petrol? It doesn't go "off" if it's stored in a sealed container. I'd happily take it off your hands (ideally not in a 2l plastic water bottle though. PM me if you need an example of what one of those is ;)

If it's been contaminated with, for example, water however; that's another story....

Why did you not take to your local cricket club they would have used it .

It was some that had been inadvertently left in a lawnmower over the winter.  The lawnmower wasn't very happy about this arrangement, and was much happier once it got some fresh unleaded.

There wasn't much, just a litre or two.

You can use a fuel stabilser, easily purchased from Amazon, that will keep the fuel good for a couple of years.  I use this in chain saw, lawn mower, sports car, motorbike, in fact anything that I don't use that often.  It works a treat and I've never had problems with fuel degradation.

I can recall the details but the proposed changes other than this small increase were dropped a couple of months ago.

Plant Sale: to help the community get involved in Open Gardens in Marple!

Saturday 9 June in the Railway Pub Car Park 12noon to 3pm

To help with people get involved with Open Gardens in Marple, organisers will be holding a PLANT SALE in aid of Cancer Research UK, selling a variety of professionally-grown bedding plants in the charity colours. This is on Saturday 9th June between 12noon and 3pm in The Railway car park at Rose Hill. We will also be at Marple Carnival and selling plants at Marple's Cancer Research UK Shop in the weeks leading up to the event.

How you can get involved ...

If you live in Marple, care about cancer and love flowers, you can be part of Marple’s support for Cancer Research UK with flower power in your front window or front garden! This simply involves displaying a pot, tub or hanging basket planted with flowers in any combination of the charity’s distinctive colours - bright pink, dark blue, light blue, purple and white.

Your community in Marple is caring about cancer with flower power – do join us.

Mrs Admin went to Marple today and reports that the minimum car parking fee is now 30p.

I understood that the parking fee changes had been put on hold pending further consultation.

Has that happened and we all missed it again?

Can anyone advise the full scope of changes and details of the process that has been gone through?
