The Skatepark Project page on the Friends' web site has been updated with news of the latest funding contribution from The Marple Tavern and Woodstock Pizza. This continues on from the support from Woodstock Pizza, who work out of The Marple Tavern, during last year's Carnival. Look out for more news of the Cycling Event being organised by The Marple Tavern, Woodstock Pizza and Recon-Cycles during the summer. More details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The page is also updated with news of a donation to Friends of Memorial Park from M.E.S.S., which has also boosted the Skatepark Project match-funding. 

Thank you Woodstock Pizza, The Marple Tavern and M.E.S.S. for your support!

The Skatepark Project page on the Friends' web site has been updated with news of the latest funding contribution from Marple Civic Society and also from William Wragg, Prospective Conservative MP for Hazel Grove.

These donations aren't linked, they've simply arrived at the same time.

Thank you to the Civic Society for their long-term ongoing support of the project and to William for a donation that may also inspire others!

The Skatepark Project page on the Friends' web site has been updated to acknowledge the recent donation of £100 from The Brass Bands of Marple and also a personal donation from Sue Emery, secretary of The Charles Ingham Bandroom Fund, which amounts to £117.50 after Gift-Aid. A very big thank you to Sue and the bands for boosting our skatepark funds.

The page has also been updated to explain that following our community fund-raising success over the last 12 months Stockport Council has reserved £22,000 from local commuted sums (section 106 agreements) for Marple Memorial Skate Park Development Project with the proviso that a bid to the Veolia Environmental Trust is successful. If it is successful then this money will cover the independent contribution needed to cover land taxes (approx £10K) and also boost our total match-funding. This will reduce the amount of money that we need to ask for, or possibly allow us to construct a better skatepark.

Thank you SMBC for recognising and supporting our efforts!

The Skatepark Project page on the Friends' web site has been updated to explain that during December 2013 Friends of the Park helped the Rotary Club of Marple and Goyt Valley with their Christmas collections at the Marple Co-Op. Collections were also made by Rotary members at New Mills Co-Op and a record-breaking total of more than £2,600 was raised altogether.

The Rotary Club generously shared the proceeds with Friends of the Park in proportion with the help we gave and we were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £850 at a Rotary evening on 14 January.

We were very pleased to learn that we'd helped achieve a record collection and the Rotary Club made just as much as they normally do after giving us our share because they support a number of local, national and international charities, ranging from support for local community projects to the worldwide campaign to eliminate polio.

The Rotary Club of Marple and Goyt Valley meets most Tuesday evenings at the Royal Hotel in Hayfield and visitors are welcome. To find out more about the club visit http://rotary-mgv.org.uk.

Following our £1,000 FM Award from Forever Manchester yesterday and our generous donation of £500 from House-on-the-Hill Software earlier this week, plus several other smaller contributions, we've now updated the Skatepark project page and thermometer on the Friends of the Park site with a new value of £10,549.

We started fund-raising at last year's Marple's Christmas Cracker and we'll be there again this Saturday, so that's exactly one year since we started and we're over halfway.

Well done to everyone who has helped us get this far!
