The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated with details of recent fund-raising successes. These include an extra £50 donated by High Lane Garage, £5 donated by @Barbara
in the park, £223 raised by family and friends of Diane Jackson on her recent milestone birthday and £793 from our joint collection at the Co-Op before Christmas with Marple and Goyt Valley Rotary Club.
These fantastic contributions bring our Community Funding total to £22,154 to date, which means that we have now surpassed our target to match the council's contribution of £22,000 from commuted sums by the end of 2014.
We plan to continue raising funds for the project until we are ready to submit our large grant application because if we can reduce the proportion of money that we need to ask for it should give us a better chance of success.http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html
Here are some images of the successful design that will be discussed with Skatepark Users soon:
