Quick reminder about the task day in Memorial Park tomorrow. So long as it doesn't get blown or rained off we should be preparing the Locks Flowerbed to be moved to Oldknow Gardens by clearing the area it is currently in and putting it in storage.

Hope to see you there, weather permitting!

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

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.

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.

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.
