The Friends of the Park were again joined by Marple Hall pupils for yesterday's task day. See the Friends web site for more details: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

The next task day will be held on Saturday 29 May 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.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

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!

Friends of Marple Memorial Park have had another good year but now it's time to get ready for the next!

Despite our successes in the park we could still use a lot more help and if you can spare an hour or two it would be brilliant. All tools will be provided, in fact we've just received a grant award to buy £470 worth of new tools, so next year our shears will actually cut!

Each Task Day is held on the last Saturday of the month (except December) between 10am and 1pm and 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.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Here's a calendar of Task Days throughout next year:

Saturday 30 January
Saturday 27 February
Saturday 27 March
Saturday 24 April
Saturday 29 May
Saturday 26 June
Saturday 31 July
Saturday 28 August
Saturday 25 September 18 September
Saturday 30 October
Saturday 27 November

We plan to rub-down and re-paint the Coronation Bench and also transplant as many of the Polyathas in the ornamental beds as we can before the summer bedding goes in.

The 31st January Task Day went well and I updated the Friends web site but didn't post anything here as we were having server problems. Just catching up now.

Yesterday's task day in the park was well attended and saw the completion of the Breathing Places project behind the library.

The Friends will be having a well earned break in December, so the next task day in the park will be held on Saturday 31st January 2009 between 10am and 1pm. 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.

Yesterday's Task Day / Wildflower planting event went well - the weather held off just long enough for the Beavers to do a great job in the woodland behind the library.

The next task day in the park will be held on Saturday 29th November 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.

The next task day in Memorial Park is a special one on Saturday 25th October. We will be planting wildflowers in the Breathing Places behind the library and also in the nature area running down from the cinema and along by the canal. We would like as many people as possible to join in this event, which is part of the BBC "Do One Thing" campaign for local people to do one thing for nature in their area.

The event will run from 10am to 1pm. Everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please wear suitable clothing and gloves and bring your own spade or trowel if you can.

If you have the facility to diplay this poster anywhere, then please download a copy:

There was a good turnout for our fun Petanque Tournament and it seemed like everyone had a great time christening the new French Boules Court yesterday. You can read more about it on the Friends of Memorial Park web site at www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/boules.htm

There are also more picture in the Virtual Tour at  http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=63

Anybody wishing to give the game a try can borrow a set of boules from Bob Wilson, the Community Parks Officer who is usually in the park during normal hours. You will need to pay a £10 deposit, which is fully refundable providing that the set is returned to Bob complete and intact. Alternatively, you can buy an extremely good value set from ALDI in Romiley for only £5 while their stocks last.

The next Task Day in Memorial Park is Saturday 27th September between 10am and 1pm. As usual everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
