Thanks for your input, I followed it up and obtained a price list. It's a good suggestion and comparable to the cost of a hardwood picnic bench if you purchase from a normal supplier, however, the nearest equivalent to what we can get from the David Lewis Centre for £80 is the Standard Oslo model in black or grey at £678 including VAT. At that price differential it doesn't make sense to me, even though in theory it would never need any maintenance.

May I suggest that consideration is given to plastic benches rather than wooden ones that require constant maintenance?

e.g.  http://www.goplastic.co.uk/benches.php

That page about the Friends of the Park's new project to save the Ornamental Flowerbeds is now on-line:

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/saving-the-flowerbeds.html

We now need to raise some funds to cover our costs but perhaps more importantly we need more volunteers to help with the task of preparing the beds next Saturday and then planting them up in the future (hopefully at the end of March). The page will be kept up-to-date with progress and latest news as it happens.

Thank you Barbara! Just added a new page to the site about the Park Cottage that links up with the Charles Ingham Bandroom Fund, who have just joined the Community Pages.

The Friends of Marple Memorial Park web site has undergone a major revamp using a content management system and has been re-launched this morning, see www.marplememorialpark.org.uk

I've attempted to ensure that the links to the old site will all re-route to the new one but if you spot any glitches I'd appreciate if you would let me know, either here or by email please.
