Local Issues / Re: Safer Walking and Cycling
« Last post by Andy on Today at 01:04:22 PM »
I've been giving this some further thought, which I have captured in an image below - I'm sure there will be some issues, but I've prioritised Children, Pedestrians and cycling over car movements and reallocated some public space away from car use to seating and shopping.

Lots of LAs have recently secured central government funding for these initiatives and I think that making Marple pedestrian friendly would be a massive step in the right direction!




I'll also point people towards the 'walk ride marple' facebook group. If this is your thing and you are on Facebook, join the group.

Local Issues / Re: Marple Skatepark Fund-raising target of £100,000 Reached!

They use the bus some of them .

I'm sure some do, but not all. Equally, many are dropped off by parents in cars, but neither of these are valid reasons to oppose safer cycling routes

Perhaps parent drop their kids off as they're worried about how safe their children are when cycling  to and from the skatepark. Perhaps those who get the bus do so for the same reason, and they'd prefer to ride. Safe cycling routes would enable this.

It is great to see his heading to completion, but what needs consideration now is how will the skate-boarders and BMX cycle riders get there safely?

There is Cycling UK Web site  https://www.cyclinguk.org/covid-19-safe-space-social-distancing#WMP  that aims to try to persuade Local Councils ro make cycling and walking safer, primarily to cater for the current "social distancing" proposals, however it is an opportunity to point out all the problem areas there are for getting around Marple if you don't use a car..

So if you think the Skatepark Users may have a problem getting there then please use the facility and let the Council know.

Local Issues / Re: Rubbish in Brabyns Park

Please hold onto your rubbish if the bin is full!

Friends of Marple Memorial Park would like to thank Iris Kennedy (aged 9) for allowing us to use her inspirational poster about litter in Memorial Park.

This morning we've attached one to each bin (except the play areas, which we'll do when they reopen) and also popped copies in our notice boards.

Well done Iris, we get it too! Thank you!

I understand Iris is putting her posters up in Brabyns Park with Friends of Brabyns today.

Someone once said that when out for the day;
Leave nothing behind and take nothing away except memories.

The simple answer is what you bring with you, you take away when you leave. Not hard really.

Local Issues / Rubbish in Brabyns Park

We have all seen the rubbish left inexplicably by visitors to beaches (Who are these people? The beaches weren't left like that before lockdown.) and I would like to draw the attention of the councillors who visit this forum to the overflowing bins in Brabyns Park.  Please could they talk to the appropriate people at the council to get this problem sorted.  Many thanks.
