Winner of the "Guess the Sweets" Competition Libby has just collected her prize. The correct number of sweets was exactly 200 and these will be shared with Libby's classmates at school and possibly at the cricket club if there's any left! The competition raised £67 for the skatepark project.

How very odd. I always find them friendly and helpful even at the end of a busy shift. I'm greeted like a welcome customer both at the checkout and when I need to ask one of the floor walkers a question.

Perhaps it's not just the attitude of the staff that causes the problems that certain people on here complain about? A smile and a "hello" doesn't cost customers anything either.

I doubt it somehow as I have heard it so many times from numerous different people, on here and from acquaintances, friends and relatives. All staff (not just a handful) should be polite and welcoming at all times. I have never noticed this in any other supermarket. Blaming the customer is a cop out.

One of the fantastic prizes donated for the Friends of Marple Memorial Park's Tombola at the Marple Food and Drink Day yesterday was a custom made cake by Icing on the Cake. Unfortunately this superb cake was one of just a few items that wasn't won and we had to bring it home. As it won't keep until our next event we'd like to raise a few extra ££'s for the project by auctioning the cake off to the highest bidder.

We have a starting offer of £10, so please bid on here, on FB or on Twitter if you'd like to win it before the closing time of 12 noon on Tuesday 16 September.

Can be delivered to a winner in Marple and District Area or collected from us.

Thank you to Icing on the Cake for this generous donation!

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated with details of a second donation of £250 from Romiley and Marple Lions, taking their total contribution to the project to £500. It has also been updated with details of the money raised at the brilliant Marple Food and Drink Festival yesterday, which achieved a record breaking total of £864.

I'd like to thank all our volunteers who helped on the day and especially Micaela Wood, who does most of the leg-work and preparations for the Tombola, and her husband Terry. The Tombola raised £674 on its own, so of course a big thank you is also due to all of the Marple shops and businesses who contributed some amazing prizes.

Catherine and Eric have sent some pictures of Archie after his liver transplant - what a brilliant smile after all he's been through!

It will be great to help raise money for the charities that have supported this Marple family.

I know it has been mentioned before on here but I hope the staff are given some training in customer service when it becomes as ASDA. Went in earlier with an elderly lady and the female staff member at the cafe was very impatient and unfriendly even though they were very quiet and nobody was behind us in the queue. Additionally, the lady who served me at checkout didn't even acknowledge me never mind smile or even pretend they wanted to be there. Awful staff!

Just got back from the Food and Drink Festival. Well done to the organisers and the participants.

It had drawn in hundreds, I think, of people who were all enjoying the food available and looking round and will, we hope come and shop locally now they know what's available.

I was tempted and fell for raspberry and redcurrant jam and apricot jam from the Girl Guides stall (goodness they'd been busy - the WI needs to look to it's laurels!), strawberries from Wilson's stall and some rhubarb from the allotments stall. I had some pretty good paella from Murillo's stand, was sorely tempted by all the cake stalls and wished I had room for one of Rick's hot dogs from the ATN stand and some goodies from the Persian food stall. Bought some tombola tickets and didn't win anything but live in hope of the raffle tickets.

The Marple band was playing. There was a Spanish guitarist near Murillo's stand and various groups playing near the childrens' games on Derby Street. I really wanted a go on the bungee trampoline thingy but there was a weight and age limit and I haven't been that small since I was 10:'(

I realised it was time to head home when one of the groups started playing a Lonnie Donegan song and I knew the words!

My only complaint was WHERE WAS THE PROMISED ROBINSON'S BREWERY HORSE????It was either very early in the day or very late as none of the stall holders had seen it. I had bought a new packet of Polo mints especially for the day.

So common sense has prevailed and the already stretched public purse will not be put under further pressure as a result of having to resource a sixth form in a school when quality provision already exists in the locality. My faith in politicians/local authority officers is restored.....for the moment.

Good Post
