I would like to echo what Lisa has said. I've lived in Marple for very nearly 40 years and I think that there have been many changes in that time, mostly good, but also some that are not so good. Anything which brings together all generations of the community must be a good thing? I would like to thank all those individuals who give up a lot of their own time (mostly/if not all voluntarily I expect) to organising these events. Marple is a much better place to live these days, it seems to me as though there is a genuine community feel to the town again and we can all take pride in that.
A little 'noise' for a couple of hours is no big deal - some people just hate to think of others having fun
I live down near Marple Tavern and we often hear the bands playing at the Ringers (depending which way the wind blows) - not my first choice of music, but it certainly isn't offensive and other people are enjoying it and its raising monies for good causes, so good luck to you.
What Marple needs are people who are prepared to support these events and help make them successful so that the younger generations feel part of a community and can join in.
