It should be ok, the finish point at the Social and Forces club is not directly on the route of the Tour of Britain which comes down Church Lane from Marple Ridge past the Ring o'Bells - the race will have to go over the cana bridge though so MIGHT be affected, runners might be held on the towpath if they should arrive just as the race is due to pass. I suppose it depends how long the 10k race takes and when the ToB might come through - they've not yet  said when they leave Altrincham and expected timigns thereafter

Timing wise, runners might find they can't leave for a short period due to road closures though - a good opportunity toboost crowds to support the ToB riders!

This is the same date as the final stage of The Tour of Britain cycle race. Hope it doesn’t affect the number of participants as lots of Marple people will probably be out and about watching the cycling.

The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 17 July has been published.

As usual doors open around 5.30pm and the meeting starts at 6pm in the Marple Senior Citizens' Hall.

If you can't get there you can watch LIVE via this link, or afterwards on catch-up:

There's a page about Marple AC that tries to explain in simple terms what they do and how you can get involved here:

The page includes a map of the Marple Wards so you can see exactly where the boundaries of Marple North and Marple South and High Lane are. It also features a live feed from the Stockport Council web site at the bottom that shows links to the latest agendas issued, meetings held etc.

For ease, here is a direct link to the agenda too:

And a link to the Marple Area Committee page on the council site:
