Perfect weather for what will probably be the last formal task day of 2013 yesterday allowed us to get lots done in the park.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered in the park this year!

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 25 January 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.

Brilliant turnout by volunteers today, despite the weather. A good tidy-up of the flowebeds in preparation for the Remembrance Service on 10 November was the main task today.

We also had a formal presentation of our share of Marple in Action's surplus funds and we'd like to thank them very much for that, and everyone who voted for us too.

We've scheduled an extra Task Day on Saturday 9 November to make sure everything is the best it can for the service and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

Pretty much perfect weather for working in the park yesterday with lot of tasks done by local volunteers once again. The main focus was on the Jubilee Bed in front of the library and transplanting of the Polyanthus to a variety of other locations within the park. Picnic benches and the last of the Boules Court benches were treated too.

Another busy day for Friends of the Park yesterday with lot of work done by local volunteers. The temporary barrier protecting the roses has now been removed and you can get a better idea of what the rose wall hedge should look like once it has matured.

On Saturday we got the flowerbeds in the park looking their best ready for the Locks Festival the following day, and received lots of positive comments about the park on both days.

We were subject to all kinds of weather yesterday but succeeded in planting our new "Rose Wall" hedge around the rear borders of the War Memorial Beds.

We've installed a temporary barrier around the borders to try and protect the roses while they get established. We hope this will encourage people to keep their dogs off the beds and stop walking across them too.

This is part of our plans to commemorate the approaching centenaries of WWI (1914-1918) in the park and we hope it will be well established by 2014.

The weather was kind for the Friends of the Park task day yesterday and lots was achieved with a good turnout of volunteers.

This included the start of a new project to refurbish the picnic benches at the Recreation Ground sponsored by Marple Area Committee.

Friends of the Park were joined by Marple and District Allotment Association during our task day yesterday.

The Allotment Association have adopted the flowerbed that was previously maintained by the Rainbows, who decided to give it up this year. We are looking forward to seeing how the Allotment Association's plans to turn the bed into a mini vegetable plot develop over the coming months. Read more here: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2013.html

We also installed a new display panel that explains the background and inspiration to our Diamond Jubilee Project outside the library. Read more here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/diamond-jubilee.html

We are now switching to two Task Days per month for the spring/summer season as it was very successful last year, so the next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 13 April and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.
