Quick reminder about the task day in Memorial Park tomorrow. So long as it doesn't get blown or rained off we should be preparing the Locks Flowerbed to be moved to Oldknow Gardens by clearing the area it is currently in and putting it in storage.

Hope to see you there, weather permitting!

Mark, any idea what happened to the trees that we planted in ht e NE corner of the park, against the Garth Road hedge in October 2007? I can't see anything there any more. I guess that the grass-mowing tractor went over the top of them or they were pulled out by yobbos. The big one against the northern edge, against Station Road is still there.

They were still there last time I checked but that was a couple of months ago. I guess either one of your suggestions is possible but I will look into it.

On a recent tour of the park I was most disappointed to find that someone has broken off several of the welded metal leaves from the Coronation Bench. Must have taken quite an effort so hopefully they felt gratified after their endeavours.

The next weekend Task Day in Memorial Park is Saturday 26th July between 10am and 2pm. As usual everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times.

A few volunteers who can make it will also be helping to plant more bedding plants in the ornamental borders on Wednesday 2nd July from 10am. Anyone is welcome to join in too and maybe a week day will suit some better than at the weekend, you never know.

The web site has been updated with a report on the Task Day today, see www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/tasks.htm

Howard - I can confirm that there is little or no sign of the small trees we planted in October, which is a shame. My guess is that the mower went over them. A lesson learnt there I think.

We've also had some more vandalism - this time the solar powered light has been removed from the insect study centre and smashed. Must have been great fun?

The next task day in the park will be held on Saturday 30th August 2008 between 10am and 1pm and we would be delighted if you could come along for however long you can between these times. Stout footwear and suitable clothes should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves if you have them. All tools will be provided.

Following on from the task day, starting from 1pm, we will be holding a French Boules Tournament to celebrate the completion of the new Petanque Court in the park. Everyone is welcome to join in - We suggest bringing your own food and drink if you plan to stay a while, and perhaps a chair or blanket to sit on. You can also bring your own set of Boules if you have them but this is not essential. We have no idea how many people will turn up, or what the weather will be like, but we hope to spend an enjoyable afternoon using the new court.

Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

A quick reminder about the Fun French Boules Tournament in Memorial Park, tomorrow. Gladys Romm, the lady whose idea it was, has just been interviewed by Pure Radio's Pete Liggins. The interview will be broadcast again this afternoon at 4.30pm on Pure 107.8FM but Pete has also kindly given us an mpeg copy that we have uploaded to the Friends of the Park site:

There was a good turnout for our fun Petanque Tournament and it seemed like everyone had a great time christening the new French Boules Court yesterday. You can read more about it on the Friends of Memorial Park web site at www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/boules.htm

There are also more picture in the Virtual Tour at  http://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=63

Anybody wishing to give the game a try can borrow a set of boules from Bob Wilson, the Community Parks Officer who is usually in the park during normal hours. You will need to pay a £10 deposit, which is fully refundable providing that the set is returned to Bob complete and intact. Alternatively, you can buy an extremely good value set from ALDI in Romiley for only £5 while their stocks last.

The next Task Day in Memorial Park is Saturday 27th September between 10am and 1pm. As usual everyone is welcome to join in for as long as they wish during these times.

Thought we were going to be rained-off yesterday but things worked out better than expected and we got quite a bit done in the park. Unfortunately the wet did stop us getting stuck into the flowerbeds the way we'd intended but we did manage a bit of work on them.

Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us on our next task day, which is Saturday 26th March. We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

A very rewarding task day yesterday with many new volunteers attending for the first time. Unfortunately the plants for the flowerbeds have not arrived yet so the large shrub beds near to the entrance were given a good make-over.

Our next scheduled task day is Saturday 30 April, although if the plants arrive in the next week or so we may have an extra one to get the planting done. We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

A very rewarding task day today as we made great in-roads into planting up our five adopted ornamental flower beds. The Rainbows and Beavers are also getting on well with theirs too and all of a sudden the park is looking quite different. A big thank you to all the volunteers who turned up and worked so hard to improve their park. Read more on the Friends of the Park web site:

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

The next scheduled task day in the park on Saturday 25 June is a special one that coincides with National Civic Day and Marple Civic Society's 50th Anniversary celebrations. The plan is many local groups will work on their chosen project/community work in various locations from 9.30am - 12.30pm on the day and then make their way to Memorial Park in time for a picnic in the park at 1.00pm - 3.00pm.

Of course Friends of Memorial Park will already be there for our task day and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 9.30 am and 12.30 pm before joining MCS in celebrating their 50th in the afternoon.

A beautiful day in the park yesterday when, amongst other things we planted a large number of rockery plants, parsley and strawberries provided by local gardeners Les and Jean White, for which we are very grateful. You will often see Les and Jean at local car boot sales selling the things they grow on their allotment but they gave all this to Friends of the Park for free  ;D

It was a lovey sunny day for our special Remembrance weekend Task Day and it's a good job we decided to do this as we discovered that the handrails on the memorial had been vandalised overnight. It's hard to find the words to express our contempt for this kind of act but at least we were in a position to do something about it and were able to carry out a temporary repair.

We had another great response from our volunteers at short notice and people attending the Remembrance Service should be able to see the results. As well as removing leaves and hoeing the flower beds we painted a litter bin that had been desperate for a coat of paint and cleared the leaves all the way down the main drive into the park. It was particularly good to have families with children helping out on a beautiful autumn day. Thank you everyone for your help.

Our last Task Day of 2011 is on Saturday 26 November and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

Our last Task Day of 2011 yesterday was quieter in terms of number of volunteers but still achieved a great deal and it's been another successful year. Read about them here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days.html

With the council having to make increased cost savings over the coming years and the proposed transfer of Parks Staff to SSK the role of Friends groups will become even more important if the standards of our parks are to be maintained, let alone improved as we have been doing.

If anyone is interested in helping out in our park we'd love to hear from you.

We were subject to all kinds of weather yesterday but succeeded in planting our new "Rose Wall" hedge around the rear borders of the War Memorial Beds.

We've installed a temporary barrier around the borders to try and protect the roses while they get established. We hope this will encourage people to keep their dogs off the beds and stop walking across them too.

This is part of our plans to commemorate the approaching centenaries of WWI (1914-1918) in the park and we hope it will be well established by 2014.

Pretty much perfect weather for working in the park yesterday with lot of tasks done by local volunteers once again. The main focus was on the Jubilee Bed in front of the library and transplanting of the Polyanthus to a variety of other locations within the park. Picnic benches and the last of the Boules Court benches were treated too.

Brilliant turnout by volunteers today, despite the weather. A good tidy-up of the flowebeds in preparation for the Remembrance Service on 10 November was the main task today.

We also had a formal presentation of our share of Marple in Action's surplus funds and we'd like to thank them very much for that, and everyone who voted for us too.

Bob Wilson's last "working day" in Memorial Park

The weather was very kind on Park Keeper Bob Wilson's last official working day in the park. Bob has taken redundancy / early retirement as part of the council cuts. Bob has spent the last 9 years of his 40 years of employment with Stockport Council, and latterly Solutions SK, in Marple Memorial Park and he is one of the key reasons that it has been so well looked after.

Read more here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2014/211-task-day-29-march-2014.html

Thank you to Arthur Procter for recording Bob's presentation and the end of an era. As a result of the budget cuts there will no longer be a permanent Park Keeper in Memorial Park and nobody is likely to provide the dedication and care that Bob has given to looking after it over the last 9 years. The need for volunteers to help look after the park it is going to be greater than ever, so if you'd like to help the Friends of the Park rise to the challenges that face us please to come and join in!

Celebrating 10 Years of improvements to Marple Memorial Park

A very productive day in the park yesterday with work on the flowerbeds, woodland area, Jubilee Bed, Sensory Bed, graffiti removal and installation of a second new picnic bench in the Infants Play Area for families to enjoy. We also welcomed Marple's Local Councillors to help us fly our new flag to commemorate 10 Years of volunteers working to improve the park.

And The Marple Plumber fitted us an outside tap free of charge! (http://www.marpleplumber.co.uk)

A sad task yesterday was to remove part of the Midnight Tree Sculpture that we created in the park back in 2007.

Lots of other more positive work was completed too and it was great to see kids playing on our latest addition to the Infants Play Area.

It speaks volumes when people say thanks and or they are vocally appreciative of the time and efforts of the volunteers.

This coming winter, such appreciation will be even more welcomed considering the bite of the cold and the snow.

I at least hope the snow doesn't come until much later.

We squeezed in an extra task day last Saturday and the council has been working hard in the park all week too, so yesterday we were able to focus on the final touches before Remembrance Sunday today. With the Timeline complete and lots of work in the park including re-tarmacking of the main paths and the area where stone was stolen from the park entrance, weeds cleared by the Payback Team and leaves blown by the park attendants, the park is as ready as it can be for the 100th anniversary of the end of the war.

A good turn-out for our final task day of 2018, taking the total for the year to 24, and over 1,000 volunteer hours worked since January. Today's efforts included a tidy up of flowerbeds front and rear of the library, litter-picking, planting bulbs, clearing leaves from the car park and driveway, clearing windfall branches from the park and even clearing the access to Asda.

Free* trip to the Windmill Pub on New Horizons for Friends of the Park

Friends of Marple Memorial Park benefited from a win of the annual £10 New Horizons Float the Boat Draw with a free trip on the canal boat for the disabled on Sunday.

What a great day out and excellent lunch at the Windmill at Whitely Green.

Everyone should support this wonderful charity by Floating the Boat for just £10 a year:  https://www.newhorizons.org.uk/float-the-boat.html (https://www.newhorizons.org.uk/float-the-boat.html)

* although the trip was a free prize we did have a whip-round and made a donation to New Horizons!

The flowerbeds are filling out nicely and the park is starting to look its very best, so it was great to get out there in the sunshine with our regular volunteers. Lots of work was done in the flowerbeds and the shrub beds, including trying out our new "Pullerbear" all the way from Canada. This is a special tool for pulling out small to medium self-seeded saplings and it works brilliantly.

Well that was a wet one with only the diehards coming out to play! We worked mainly on the borders alongside the pathway to the Reading Circle behind the library and it looked a bit of a mess by the time we'd finished. This is because we have placed an order for a contractor to come and resurface the circle and pathway in around a month's time. The pathway is to be widened to comply with the latest requirements for wheelchairs (it did comply when we created the Reading Circle in 2008 but recommendations have changed a little) so we moved as many plants as we could out of the way. Once the work is done we can then have a good sort out and get it back to its best.

If you'd like to support what they do, why not express an interest in the new 50-50 Club launching in September: https://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/50-50club.html (https://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/50-50club.html)

Read more about our task days here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2019.html (http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2019.html)

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 27 July 2019 and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

Stout footwear and suitable clothing should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves and small hand tools if you have them. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
