Friends of Marple Memorial Park Task Days for 2015 have now been scheduled and the next one is Saturday 31 January.

We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm and it would be great to see some new faces in the New Year too!

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.

Today's weather was a pleasant surprise. We had a great turnout of volunteers and planted several sacks of bulbs.

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.

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.

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!
