The www.54DegreesNorth.co.uk sponsored bench was given its final coat yesterday and we're now just waiting for the plaque to be delivered.



We also completed this year's re-treating of the Market Street and Derby Way benches that we refurbished last year too.

Looks great!
The www.54degreesnorth.co.uk sponsored bench has now been fully reassembled.

It awaits a sand-down and final coat of preservative, hopefully sometime next week, followed by fitting of the dedication plaque.

I agree - Marple centre looks a good deal better as a result.

The plaque has been fitted to the McInnes Partnership sponsored bench and it is now fully completed.

The McInnes Partnership is a Chartered Account based in Marple House (above M&Co). As well as sponsoring the bench, they have done the Friends of the Park accounts for the last 13 years free of charge. Great community support! See more on their web site: http://www.mcinnes-partnership.com/

Here's a shot of the plaque and a before and after:

The hard graft on Market Street has continued today, softened by lunch at All Things Nice washed down with a beer at Sam's:

The McInnes Partnership sponsored bench on the Hollins is now fully reassembled and we just have to give it a final coat of preservative in a few days time and then fit the plaque.

Arrangements are in the final stages for the last one on Market Street but we still need sponsors for the others on the Hollins.

Here's the kind of transformation your sponsorship will achieve:

Bit of bench treatment on Market Street this evening on the ones we refurbished last year.

We managed to get 5 done and all of them sanded but ran out of preservative outside Samuel Oldknows.

Bit of a disaster really but we could hardly not go in for a pint now could we!
