We would like to extend our thanks to the Carnival Committee for their generosity and support. This is great news and great timing because we are going to be holding a special skate park event as part of this year's Carnival. Look out for more details soon and please share this news with as many friends as you can to help us find more people interested in helping to improve Marple's Skate Park.

Just back from Marple Area Committee meeting this evening where our local councillors enthusiastically awarded the Memorial Park Skate Park Project the maximum grant of £1,000 from their Area Flexibility Funding. This gives our match-funding a fantastic boost to £4,596 - so a big thank you to our local councillors for their support  :)

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

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 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.
