It is the smaller boxes being emptied earlier, not being used enough.

Thew box I referred to is not a small one - it is the same size as the one outside Marple Post Office.  If it's 'not being used enough' (which I doubt), the way to get it used more is obviously to improve the service, not make it worse.  Even Thatcher stopped short of privatising the Royal Mail..................

A new walk around Marple Town Centre led by Andy Cook, co-author of the book "Remembered - Marple Men who fell in The Great War".

Promoted and supported by Marple Local History Society & Friends of Marple Memorial Park.

This walk will start and finish in Memorial Park but take a different route to the walks conducted in August and talk about the lives of different men. So it's suitable for people who attended the first walks, or for those who didn't.

As a tribute to the men of Marple who fell during WWI Andy will lead you around Marple Town Centre and show you where some of the 141 men listed on Marple War Memorial lived. He will explain the lives they left to go to war, how they met their end and show you where they lived to help illustrate the devastation that must have been felt by our town and small communities like it throughout the country.

The walk is expected to take 2 to 2.5 hours but may take longer if people have questions. You will never be far from Marple Town Centre and will be welcome to leave the group at any time. The route is uneven in places and is not suitable for wheelchairs. The walk is also not suitable for pets or young children and any children attending the walk must be supervised by a parent or guardian.

It is recommended that you wear sturdy shoes suitable for walking and clothing appropriate for the weather, including a hat and sunscreen if it is hot and sunny. Things to bring include a bottle of water if you need it and a copy of "Remembered" if you have one.

The walk will begin and end in Marple Memorial Park. Please gather near the War Memorial in the park at around 1.50pm for a prompt 2pm start.

Attendance on the walk is FREE of charge but an optional donation to the British Legion Poppy Appeal will be requested at the end of the talk.

Numbers are limited, so please book your FREE place early:

Sunday 21 September 2pm to approx 4pm :

Sunday 28 September 2pm to approx 4pm :

Sunday 05 October 2pm to approx 4pm :

Howard's right, the third walk was excellent, despite the awful weather, and everyone seemed to get a great deal out of it. Additionally, £102 was collected for the British Legion Poppy Appeal, taking the current total to £256. Below are some photos taken by Arthur on Sunday.

The next post in this thread will launch the second walk in the series. Get signed up quickly to avoid disappointment!

Crumbs! Whoever takes on the propety will have to have a hefty turn over to cover 30K pa rent

Yep, I can't imagine anyone will pay that. With rates, a 45pc margin that's 80k before paying anything else. I can only see a fast food outlet doing that from that outlet. Nobody will pay that and survive.

Do you think stepping Hill should become a specialist hospital .....

I don't know much about the issue but I guess it's related to the story in the Manchester Evening News Petitions launched to keep emergency surgery at Stepping Hill.

I am doing the Bullock this year and I am wondering whether any fellow Marple residents will be doing so? Or has anyone done it in the past? Any tips? I will be walking rather than running (that is just crackers).

I am doing the 56 mile Hike in a bid to raise £3000 for two cancer charities. I am already over half way there and am expecting some additional publicity in Inside Marple and other local media in the coming weeks. I was inspired to take on the challenge after a personal loss earlier this year; More information can be found at

Asda was going no ware but there smack bang middle of Marple now .
 We now have a substandard post service if you want your post next day post before dawn .
Answer that one .
The post box on market street will continue to be emptied at approx 6pm. Same with the box outside the post office on Stockport road. It is the smaller boxes being emptied earlier, not being used enough. Sign of the times.
