With Remembrance approaching our main focus was the flowerbeds around the War Memorial during yesterday's task day.

We've also been working on a new Remembrance project - look out for more news on that soon.

Read more here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2014.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 25 October 2014 and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

Stout footwear and suitable clothing should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves and small hand tools if you have them. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

A good downpour prevented further painting work but local volunteers still put in lots of effort at our task day yesterday.

Some of you may have noticed Friends of the Park with lots of young people from "NCS The Challenge" painting the Infants Play Area fence yesterday.

They did a great job, saving us hours of work AND paying for the paint!

Another good task day in Marple Memorial Park yesterday helped by the continuing great weather (although it was good to work in the shade! ).

Thank you to our volunteers and the park users who put money in our bucket.

Better weather (but lower numbers than usual) yesterday meant that we could make some progress on painting the Infants Play Area Fence.

Celebrating 10 Years of improvements to Marple Memorial Park

A very productive day in the park yesterday with work on the flowerbeds, woodland area, Jubilee Bed, Sensory Bed, graffiti removal and installation of a second new picnic bench in the Infants Play Area for families to enjoy. We also welcomed Marple's Local Councillors to help us fly our new flag to commemorate 10 Years of volunteers working to improve the park.

And The Marple Plumber fitted us an outside tap free of charge!

Bob Wilson's last "working day" in Memorial Park

The weather was very kind on Park Keeper Bob Wilson's last official working day in the park. Bob has taken redundancy / early retirement as part of the council cuts. Bob has spent the last 9 years of his 40 years of employment with Stockport Council, and latterly Solutions SK, in Marple Memorial Park and he is one of the key reasons that it has been so well looked after.



Read more here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2014/211-task-day-29-march-2014.html

Thank you to Arthur Procter for recording Bob's presentation and the end of an era. As a result of the budget cuts there will no longer be a permanent Park Keeper in Memorial Park and nobody is likely to provide the dedication and care that Bob has given to looking after it over the last 9 years. The need for volunteers to help look after the park it is going to be greater than ever, so if you'd like to help the Friends of the Park rise to the challenges that face us please to come and join in!

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 12 April 2014 and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

Thank you for your comment Amazon! It's good to know that people notice  :)

We had the first task day of 2014 yesterday and also collected the first in the borough 2014-2018 WWI Small Grant of £200 for the Rose Wall Hedge that we planted around the war memorial beds last year.
