A quick reminder about the Fun French Boules Tournament in Memorial Park, tomorrow. Gladys Romm, the lady whose idea it was, has just been interviewed by Pure Radio's Pete Liggins. The interview will be broadcast again this afternoon at 4.30pm on Pure 107.8FM but Pete has also kindly given us an mpeg copy that we have uploaded to the Friends of the Park site:

www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/boules.htm

Everyone is welcome to join in - We suggest bringing your own food and drink if you plan to stay a while, and perhaps a chair or blanket to sit on. You can also bring your own set of Boules if you have them but this is not essential. We have no idea how many people will turn up, or what the weather will be like, but we hope to spend an enjoyable afternoon using the new court.

The next task day in the park will be held on Saturday 30th August 2008 between 10am and 1pm and we would be delighted if you could come along for however long you can between these times. Stout footwear and suitable clothes should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves if you have them. All tools will be provided.

Following on from the task day, starting from 1pm, we will be holding a French Boules Tournament to celebrate the completion of the new Petanque Court in the park. Everyone is welcome to join in - We suggest bringing your own food and drink if you plan to stay a while, and perhaps a chair or blanket to sit on. You can also bring your own set of Boules if you have them but this is not essential. We have no idea how many people will turn up, or what the weather will be like, but we hope to spend an enjoyable afternoon using the new court.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The next weekend Task Day in Memorial Park is Saturday 26th July between 10am and 2pm. As usual everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times.

A few volunteers who can make it will also be helping to plant more bedding plants in the ornamental borders on Wednesday 2nd July from 10am. Anyone is welcome to join in too and maybe a week day will suit some better than at the weekend, you never know.

The web site has been updated with a report on the Task Day today, see www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

Howard - I can confirm that there is little or no sign of the small trees we planted in October, which is a shame. My guess is that the mower went over them. A lesson learnt there I think.

We've also had some more vandalism - this time the solar powered light has been removed from the insect study centre and smashed. Must have been great fun?

They were still there last time I checked but that was a couple of months ago. I guess either one of your suggestions is possible but I will look into it.

On a recent tour of the park I was most disappointed to find that someone has broken off several of the welded metal leaves from the Coronation Bench. Must have taken quite an effort so hopefully they felt gratified after their endeavours.

Mark, any idea what happened to the trees that we planted in ht e NE corner of the park, against the Garth Road hedge in October 2007? I can't see anything there any more. I guess that the grass-mowing tractor went over the top of them or they were pulled out by yobbos. The big one against the northern edge, against Station Road is still there.

As usual everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times, when we hope that the local Beavers will be planting hedgerows in the Breathing Places area (if the hedgepacks arrive from the Woodland Trust in time! )

Today's Task Day saw the successful planting up of Marple's new Lock 17 display, with the Friends of the Park being joined by Marple Locks Heritage Society and Churches Together.

The next Friends of the Park Task Day on Saturday 27th October is a special Tree Planting Event funded by the Woodland Trust and we will be planting 121 new trees in the park.

Everyone is welcome to join in and all children participating will receive a goodie bag in the post from the Woodland Trust. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Bring your own trowel or spade and wear appropriate clothing and boots or shoes. We will meet in the park at 10am.

At the next Friends of Marple Memorial Park Task Day we will join forces with Marple Locks Heritage Society to complete the planting up of the new Lock 17 display on Oldknow Gardens on the corner of Strines Road and Stockport Road (near to Lock 13).

The new steel replica lock gates have been installed today by Wayne Chaisty of Ironwood. Visit www.marple-uk.com/lock17 to see what a fine job wayne has done and to read more about the project.

We hope to be returning the original rocks from the War Memorial when it was first built in 1922 to the flowerbeds surrounding it.
