The Friends of Marple Memorial Park web site has been updated with a new on-line consultation that we hope will help us to gather support from the community to apply for a Green Space Development Grant.

If successful the grant will pay for a special one-off circular bench to be placed around the Coronation Tree. What's the Cononation Tree you may ask! Click the link to find out...Friends of Marple Memorial Park Consultation

We've had quite a good response to our on-line consulation so far but our application needs to be submitted by the end of the coming weekend, so it would help greatly if we could get a few more.

If you've done it already - thank you :D If you haven't, please help us by taking a few minutes to fill it out at: www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/consultation.htm

I see the mindless have decided to spoil the fun of the little ones in the park!  What do they think they can achieve by burning the climbing frame in the play area?  Sometimes I despair.  I just hope that when they have children of their own (what a prospect!! ) they will regret their actions as youths! :(

Section 5.1 under any other business is particularly relevant to Barbara's comments below and what the library staff are having to deal with at the moment is most unpleasant. Without wishing to get into an argument, I'm not sure that many adults would be getting up to this kind of stuff but mindless it certainly is!

"Drainage Improvements – Three options have been identified to deal with the drainage problems at the entrance to the park".

Just wondering exactly where this problem is? What's the cause and effect? Thanks.

"Jonathan will try to source some additional and larger bins for the park, as the existing ones are well used but regularly overflowing."

I apologise for not knowing the funding details of the park, but I assume "The Friends" act out of their own good will and raise additional cash etc. I was just thinking that litter bins are fundamental for a park and if they are too small then the council should put this right? However, I suppose in the current financial climate this is an impossibility, hence it needs "The Friends" to rectify this?

Thank you for your questions (it's great that you read the minutes with so much interest) I'm pleased to try and clarify as follows:

"Drainage Improvements – Three options have been identified to deal with the drainage problems at the entrance to the park". Just wondering exactly where this problem is? What's the cause and effect? Thanks.

There is a drain more or less in the centre of the entrance pathway to the park (from Stockport Road) close to the existing notice board that does not work properly and whenever we have prolonged rainfall it causes a huge puddle blocking the pathway. We (The Friends) would like to see this resolved but do not really think it appropriate use of our community raised funds - so we're hoping that the District Partnership and the council (Parks & Recreation) will be able to find the money for it.

"Jonathan will try to source some additional and larger bins for the park, as the existing ones are well used but regularly overflowing."

I apologise for not knowing the funding details of the park, but I assume "The Friends" act out of their own good will and raise additional cash etc. I was just thinking that litter bins are fundamental for a park and if they are too small then the council should put this right? However, I suppose in the current financial climate this is an impossibility, hence it needs "The Friends" to rectify this?

The Jonathan referred to is Jonathan Long, Parks and Recreation Area Manager East (that may not be exactly the right title). We feel the same - that litter bins are basic infrastructure, so we were putting gentle pressure on Jonathan during our meeting in the park to do something about the overflowing bins. It is not our intention to fund new bins with money raised by the Friends group, although we would give it consideration if there is no other way. I'm hopeful that Jonathan will be able to find a way to do this, even in the current climate. It was very helpful that as we were talking about this a group of youngsters came out of the park with several bags of their own rubbish looking for somewhere to put it. I think Jonathan was quite impressed (I certainly was! )

I hope this answers your queries but if you want to know anything more, please feel free to ask.

We now need to raise some funds to cover our costs but perhaps more importantly we need more volunteers to help with the task of preparing the beds next Saturday and then planting them up in the future (hopefully at the end of March). The page will be kept up-to-date with progress and latest news as it happens.

May I suggest that consideration is given to plastic benches rather than wooden ones that require constant maintenance?

Thanks for your input, I followed it up and obtained a price list. It's a good suggestion and comparable to the cost of a hardwood picnic bench if you purchase from a normal supplier, however, the nearest equivalent to what we can get from the David Lewis Centre for £80 is the Standard Oslo model in black or grey at £678 including VAT. At that price differential it doesn't make sense to me, even though in theory it would never need any maintenance.

The Friends of Marple Memorial Park web site has been updated with the latest developments on the Skate Park, including 2 designs schemes that will be discussed further with Skate Park Users.

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

We still have some consultation work to do before deciding the best possible scheme for our park but the key challenge now is to raise enough money to get it done. We've established that it will cost around £25k to refurbish and improve the existing skate park and we have simpler schemes from the contractors featured in the site that would cost around £50k.

We would like to achieve the best possible upgrade to the Skate Park but whether it will cost £25k, £50k or £75k, these are significant sums of money that we do not yet have.

It's important that we do not raise expectations too high too soon and Skate Park Users excited by these schemes need to understand that it may take a long time to find the funds needed. But that's not going to stop us trying!

Yes you're right, I'm expecting them to help and I was including skate park users in the "us". They've been involved in the consultation so far and I would hope that they will help us raise match funding. But if the bulk of the funding isn't found from a decent sized grant it will take a long time to accumulate £75k and I don't want them to think it will all be done and dusted by this summer (which is one of the first questions asked on the facebook page).

The observant amongst you may have noticed that the Friends of Marple Memorial Park Diamond Jubilee Project actually got started a couple of weeks ago, after protracted delays waiting for planning approval, and was planted up during the last week. The FOMMP web site has just been updated with details and photographs:

The next exciting step will be to install the metal sculpture, which is now in progress and will hopefully be ready in 3 or 4 weeks time.

It's been a very special day for Friends of Memorial Park, as today we installed the metal-art sculpture created by local artist Wayne Chaisty for our Diamond Jubilee Project. Our original plans to have this ready for the Jubilee weekend were stymied by the council deciding (very late in the project's development) that we needed full planning permission. I'm pleased to say that we stuck with it, got the formal permissions we needed and today was the reward. The Friends' of the Park web site has been updated with photos of the installation this evening. We hope you like it and that everyone will treat it with respect:

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.

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!

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.

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!

I'd like to thank all our volunteers who helped on the day and especially Micaela Wood, who does most of the leg-work and preparations for the Tombola, and her husband Terry. The Tombola raised £674 on its own, so of course a big thank you is also due to all of the Marple shops and businesses who contributed some amazing prizes.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated with the latest news, which for convenience is also repeated below.

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

Skatepark Project Update 20 October 2014

Three calendar months have passed since the Marple Skatepark Project Team met with Skatepark Users and the council to score the three Skatepark design tenders received on 13 June. There was a very strong winner of the user group scoring process followed at the meeting on 17 July and this was also reflected in the consultation with users and the public at Marple Carnival on Saturday 21 June 2014. The remainder of the scoring process was concluded with Stockport Council on 28 July with the same tenderer being a clear winner on all fronts.

Since then we've been waiting for Stockport Council to complete their approval process so that we can start talking to the chosen tenderer, tweak his designs and get them ready for planning permission – the intent being that once we have planning permission we would submit a landfill trust grant application to try and win the balance of the money that we need to complete the project.

Unfortunately, at the moment Stockport Council seem unable to bring the approval process to a conclusion. The reason given for this is that the chosen tenderer is a relatively new company and therefore the council are seeking a parent company guarantee. This is not unusual but the council appears to be struggling to reach an agreement on it. It’s hard for us to understand why that would be as the chosen company is currently working on or recently completed seven other skateparks for six different local authorities across the country.

On 24 September we met with Ian Walmsley - the council's Greenspace Manager - and Councillor Martin Candler. Cllr Candler is Executive Member for Communities and Sustainability, which includes responsibility for all Stockport Parks and Green Spaces. It was explained that the delays are having a severe impact on the momentum of the project and we are very concerned about what we will have to do if this matter is not resolved soon in a way that allows us to move on with our plans. Cllr Candler agreed to investigate the issues and see if he can help to resolve them.

As we currently understand it, the council’s procurement and legal service providers are working to resolve the matter but we have no details of what the issues are and have been unable to obtain any indication of how much longer it will take.

We’ve held off making a formal update about the situation until now because we expected it to be resolved within a few weeks but are now in despair at the momentum that has been lost on the project and embarrassed at the delays.

We notified Skatepark Users who took part in the scoring process at the beginning of October and now feel it’s essential to tell other people taking an interest in the project what is happening too. We continue hoping that this issue will be resolved satisfactorily, allowing us to engage with the chosen contractor and move the project forward soon.

We will provide further updates when we have more news.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated to announce that yesterday, after a frustrating wait since July this year, we were at last told that the council's process for approving the skatepark contractor chosen by the Project Team and User Group is virtually complete and we could let people know.

So I'm pleased to advise that in the New Year Canvas Spaces Ltd will be helping us to develop a final design, obtain planning permission and will support our large grant application. In the event that this is successful they will also build the new skatepark but there is still a lot to do before we reach that stage.

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.

It is all contained within the existing footprint of the site (the existing hard surface area) but yes, more of the existing space it is being used for the new skatepark.

This plan of the existing facility helps to make it clearer:

Notification that Marple and District WI raised £600 towards the project match-funding during last year's Christmas Cracker, bringing our community funding to £22,928.

An application for planning permission was submitted on Friday 6 March 2015. This should soon appear on the Planning Portal and I'll add a link when it does.

A grant application was submitted yesterday to the Lafarge- Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund administered by the Derbyshire Environmental Trust and receipt was informally acknowledged today. The application asks for £62,000, which is the balance of funds that we need to complete the Marple Skatepark Development Project.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following receipt of £53 of community funding from Marple Hall School, which was raised by two of their pupils doing a sponsored silence last term. This takes our community raised match funding for the project to £22,981, just £19 short of an amazing £23,000.

No but today is the target recommendation date so I'm hoping that it will be very soon. I've asked the council to request an update from the planners already. As soon as I know I'll post.

I'm delighted to report that Planning Permission for the Skatepark has been GRANTED!

So it's just a wait to see the outcome of our grant application towards the end of May now. Fingers crossed everyone!

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated this morning:

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

As everyone who has been following the project will know, in March 2015 we submitted a grant application to the Lafarge-Tarmac Landfill Community Fund seeking £62,000, which was the balance of funds that we needed to complete the project. This was reviewed in May 2015 and unfortunately our application was not successful so we now need to decide what to do next.

The cost of the project is £100,000. So far £23,000 of Community Match-Funding has been raised. The Council has also set aside £22,000, so we have £45,000 altogether. This means that we still need to raise £55,000 to achieve the aims of the project.

We are going to need lots more support from the community if we are to recover from this setback and eventually succeed, so if you can help please get in touch.

Watch this space for PLAN C!

Here's an extract from the letter we received yesterday afternoon:

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following allocation of £240 donated by author K. C. Dowling and £402 raised by the Julian Wadden Treasure Hunt towards the Skatepark Project. This takes our community raised match funding for the project to £23,753, so only £54,247 to go!

Been waiting for several weeks to announce this. Thank you to Stockport Council for their ongoing support of Marple Skatepark Development Project!

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following Stockport Council agreeing to increase the £22k of Formal Sports Commuted allocated to the project in February 2014 by a further £28k on a £ for £ match-funding basis. This means that they will match the money raised within the community by up to £50,000 and we will need to raise a total of £50,000 too in order to achieve our aims. This agreement has a deadline of April 2018 (when the current planning permission expires).

This £ for £ match-funding agreement is a massive step forward for the project after our previous funding strategy set-backs. It means that every £1 raised so far is worth £2 and every £1 raised in the future will also be worth £2 as well. It will enable us to get there twice as fast as without it and we hope that it will inspire the local community to get right behind us again as we push on to raise the balance of funds that we need before the deadline.

If you can help us to raise a few £1's, a few £100's or even a few £1,000's please get in touch. Every £1 raised by you or us, or from any grant scheme will be matched by the Council!

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts over the Christmas period plus a recent new development. Collectively these give us a huge boost to the new fundraising year.

In summary the main updates are: £419 Raised by the Hatters Arm and All Things Nice for Halloween and Movember; £901 Collected with Marple & GV Rotary Club in Marple Asda over Christmas; £458 from the Giant Hamper Raffle and Guess the Sweets competition in Marple Asda; Ring o' Bells Quiz Nights reach £1,552 total and £2,500 released to the project by the Forever Manchester / CDL Fund.

This gives us some fantastic progress against our £100,000 target and thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we only need to raise a further £18,860.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since January. We've made brilliant progress since the turn of the year and it's great to see that outstanding balance reducing the way it has since Christmas.

In summary the main updates are: £105 from Marple Tuesday Bridge Club, £200 from Asda's Chosen by You scheme, £1,500 from Marple Area Committee Flexibility Fund, £100 from the Nationwide Building Society, £587 from our Easter Raffle and Collection in Asda, £1,000 donated by The Marple Website, £100 donated by Nitrotek Ltd, £1,120 raised by Marple Skatefest II, £187 raised at Hawk Green Maypole Event, £64 donated by Trident Electronics, another £56 from the Ring o' Bells Quiz Nights and £500 from the Rotary Club of Stockport.

This gives us more fantastic progress against our £100,000 target and thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we only need to raise a further £12,198.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since the last update in May. We've continued to make fantastic progress and we really are within shouting distance now if we can just keep that community support coming!

In summary the main updates are: £941 from the Julian Wadden Treasure Hunt, a third £1,000 grant from Stockport Homes, £394 raised during the #GiveMe5 campaign, £463 raised during Marple Carnival and the Skatepark Jam (some of this was matched during #GiveMe5 too), £50 raised by Marple Athletic JFC, £100 donated by Marple Bandroom (for helping them with maintenance of their garden) and a fantastic £600 donated by Marple Hall School.

We are now so close to our £100,000 target and thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £8,633.

Please note that you can still donate to our Appeal here: https://localgiving.org/appeal/marpleskatepark/ (https://localgiving.org/appeal/marpleskatepark/)

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following fundraising efforts since the last update in July. We're continuing to make good progress as we chip away at the relatively small total that we now need to reach our target - so please keep helping us!

In summary the main updates are: £80 raised from sale of photos at Samuel Oldknows, £450 from sponsored bench refurbishments in the Town Centre, £50 from Asda Chosen by You, £50 from Romiley and Marple Lions and £150 from Marple Carnival. We've also continued to receive some income from the Grow Your Tenner scheme and a few other minor donations too.

Thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £7,645 to reach our £100,000 target.

Having read the minutes of the park committee and noticed that you are trying to get the bowling green fenced in, is it worth asking Marple Hall School to talk to their kids about the problems caused by playing on the bowling green.  I have told off kids that were playing football on the bowling green.  They were from Marple Hall as I knew the majority of them by name.  They are trying to promote community action especially amongst their Year Nine kids (the majority of the footballers are now in Year Nine) who will have a graduation ceremony at the end of this school year.

If I see them again on the bowling green I will have no hesitation in contacting the school (I didn't last time as I hoped my comments to them and their friends would deter them) .

Good to find you reading our minutes in detail @Deniseam !

I think it will be worth it, yes. Anything that may reduce the problems on the green is worth a try. I will write to Mr Barker. Before I do, are you happy for me to tell him that you can name them if he wants to know more details? I don't mind if you don't want to but it will be helpful to know how I should respond if he asks for more information about this particular incident.

This is the first time we've had any culprits positively identified as Marple Hall students - many of the youths seen and reported before have been much older.

Thanks to our £1 for £1 match-funding agreement with Stockport Council we now only need to raise a further £3,956 to reach our £100,000 target.

As announced at Christmas, we have reached our fund-raising target of £100,000.

We received the final document pack from contractor Canvas Spaces on 5 January and we are currently waiting for the council to complete the process of placing the formal order with Canvas. We hope to make further announcements very soon.
