Plenty of work done near to the cinema during today's task day. See the Friends web site for more details: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

It was great fun to spot the new additions to the Breathing Places area - well done whoever did this but the poor little fellas really need some hats to keep the rain off!


Lots and lots to do in the park and the next task day will be held on Saturday 27 March 2010 between 10am and 1pm. We'd be delighted if you could come along for however long you can between these times. Stout footwear and suitable clothing should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves if you have them.

All tools will be provided - in fact we should have brand new tools as we recently won a grant for nearly £500 worth and are now waiting for delivery!

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Brrrrrrrr, it was cold and wet today but the Friends of the Park and a couple of Marple Hall pupils still braved the elements for a few hours to do some very soggy weeding. See the Friends web site for more details: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

Much better weather allowed us to sort out the sculpture behind the library at last and also weed and mulch some of the shrub beds with the help of Marple Hall School last Saturday. See the Friends web site for more details: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

The Pear sculpture was re-installed in the park during yesterday's task day and the ornamental beds were weeded and dead-headed - aren't they looking good now! See the Friends web site for more details: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

The next task day in Memorial Park is on Saturday 30th October, when amongst other things the Beaver Scouts will be planting 1,000 purple crocuses provided by New Mills, Marple and District Rotary to  highlight Polio Vacination of children in India (who are given a purple "spot" mark when they've been done). Weather permitting we will continue to paint the Bowling Green buildings too.

We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm. Stout footwear and suitable clothing should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves if you have them.

Thought we were going to be rained-off yesterday but things worked out better than expected and we got quite a bit done in the park. Unfortunately the wet did stop us getting stuck into the flowerbeds the way we'd intended but we did manage a bit of work on them.

Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us on our next task day, which is Saturday 26th March. We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

A very rewarding task day yesterday with many new volunteers attending for the first time. Unfortunately the plants for the flowerbeds have not arrived yet so the large shrub beds near to the entrance were given a good make-over.

Our next scheduled task day is Saturday 30 April, although if the plants arrive in the next week or so we may have an extra one to get the planting done. We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

A very rewarding task day today as we made great in-roads into planting up our five adopted ornamental flower beds. The Rainbows and Beavers are also getting on well with theirs too and all of a sudden the park is looking quite different. A big thank you to all the volunteers who turned up and worked so hard to improve their park. Read more on the Friends of the Park web site:

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/saving-the-flowerbeds.html

The next scheduled task day in the park on Saturday 25 June is a special one that coincides with National Civic Day and Marple Civic Society's 50th Anniversary celebrations. The plan is many local groups will work on their chosen project/community work in various locations from 9.30am - 12.30pm on the day and then make their way to Memorial Park in time for a picnic in the park at 1.00pm - 3.00pm.

Of course Friends of Memorial Park will already be there for our task day and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm before joining MCS in celebrating their 50th in the afternoon.

A quieter turn-out for last Saturday's Task Day but we still got lots of stuff done and then filled up with butties at the Civic Society celebrations in the afternoon!
