A bit late to the party here, but I'd like to echo the comments and thanks from other members of this forum, Mark.  Yes, it seems that Facebook has made it redundant, but in its day this was a fine debating chamber, notable for its penetrating punditry on a wide range of matters.   But you kept it (mostly....) civilised, Mark, and it was often an excellent place for good-humoured discussion, which was occasionally even well informed. 

As others have said, Facebook is a very poor substitute. So thanks again for all your good work in running the forum Mark, and long may the website itself continue.

The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 30 November has been published.

The agenda covers a number of items that will be of interest to local people including an Open Forum on Creating a Strong, Vibrant and Healthy Marple District Centre.

The meeting starts at 6pm in Marple Senior Citizens' Hall and members of the public may attend.

The press and public are also able to follow the proceedings by watching the live webcast of the meeting.

Watch LIVE via this link, or afterwards on catch-up:

Note that the Web Casts are embedded in the meeting agendas.

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.

There is also a shortcut link to the Marple Area Committee page on the council site:
