The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated to catch-up with fund-raising to the end of 2016 and now reflects the current status of the project too.

As announced at Christmas, we have reached our fund-raising target of £100,000.

We received the final document pack from contractor Canvas Spaces on 5 January and we are currently waiting for the council to complete the process of placing the formal order with Canvas. We hope to make further announcements very soon.

To catch up with full details of the project visit:

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since the last full update in August.

We're so close now - please keep helping on our final push to reach that £100,000 total by the end of the year!

In summary, the main highlights are: an extra £100 raised from The Samuel Oldknow, £615 raised at Marple Food and Drink Festival, £240 from Marple Soup, £856 from the Art Auction, another £50 from Marple Tuesday Bridge Club, nearly £40 from Robinson's Brewery / Ring o' Bells, another £750 from sponsored bench refurbishments in the Town Centre, £424 from Grow Your Tenner 2016 (so far), £400 from MP William Wragg's Charity of the Month, £100 from ISWOK Boutique's Fashion Sale and Tombola and a number of other smaller miscellaneous donations and contributions received via Local Giving.

Thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £3,956 to reach our £100,000 target.

For more details visit the Skatepark Project page and scroll down to the fundraising blog section:

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

Note: Grow Your Tenner is currently scheduled to finish tomorrow at 12noon. There is still £67,000 in their match-pot and still time for a last-minute donation to be quadrupled!

Having read the minutes of the park committee and noticed that you are trying to get the bowling green fenced in, is it worth asking Marple Hall School to talk to their kids about the problems caused by playing on the bowling green.  I have told off kids that were playing football on the bowling green.  They were from Marple Hall as I knew the majority of them by name.  They are trying to promote community action especially amongst their Year Nine kids (the majority of the footballers are now in Year Nine) who will have a graduation ceremony at the end of this school year.

If I see them again on the bowling green I will have no hesitation in contacting the school (I didn't last time as I hoped my comments to them and their friends would deter them) .

Good to find you reading our minutes in detail @Deniseam !

I think it will be worth it, yes. Anything that may reduce the problems on the green is worth a try. I will write to Mr Barker. Before I do, are you happy for me to tell him that you can name them if he wants to know more details? I don't mind if you don't want to but it will be helpful to know how I should respond if he asks for more information about this particular incident.

This is the first time we've had any culprits positively identified as Marple Hall students - many of the youths seen and reported before have been much older.
