The observant amongst you may have noticed that the Friends of Marple Memorial Park Diamond Jubilee Project actually got started a couple of weeks ago, after protracted delays waiting for planning approval, and was planted up during the last week. The FOMMP web site has just been updated with details and photographs:

The next exciting step will be to install the metal sculpture, which is now in progress and will hopefully be ready in 3 or 4 weeks time.

It's been a very special day for Friends of Memorial Park, as today we installed the metal-art sculpture created by local artist Wayne Chaisty for our Diamond Jubilee Project. Our original plans to have this ready for the Jubilee weekend were stymied by the council deciding (very late in the project's development) that we needed full planning permission. I'm pleased to say that we stuck with it, got the formal permissions we needed and today was the reward. The Friends' of the Park web site has been updated with photos of the installation this evening. We hope you like it and that everyone will treat it with respect:

The Friends of Marple Memorial Park site has been updated with the latest situation on the Skate Park improvements project:

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

This includes two new surveys that were started at the Marple Christmas Cracker. One is for Skate Park Users themselves and the other is for any Adults or Parents of young users to have a say too.

Please show your support for the project by filling in the appropriate survey and telling your kids, grandkids parents and anyone else you know about the project.

The Friends of Marple Memorial Park site has been updated with details of yesterday's task day in the park, which included completion of the refurbishment of the second bench near to the Co-Op steps. This was kindly sponsored by All Things Nice Coffee House and Deli on Church Lane - so a very BIG thank you to them for their support!

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2013.html

Also, a BIG thank you to local artist Steve Abbott, who has donated £30 to the Skate Park Project - this was raised by Steve doing his fantastic silhouettes on New Year's Eve at the Ring o' Bells Pub.

The Friends of Marple Memorial Park have recently signed up to the Local Giving web site and we have now been validated.

This means that anyone wishing to support us can donate on-line and if you are a tax-payer we will get an extra 25% through Gift-Aid.

At certain times your donations will also be match funded by Local Giving in their "Grow Your Tenner" campaign, which means that a £10 donation becomes £21.54!

It is planned to allocate all donations in the immediate future to the Skate Park Fund, as we need to raise around £20,000 to enable us to make a grant application for the balance of funds needed.

To visit our Local Giving page use this link: https://localgiving.com/fommp
