Local Issues / Re: Childrens' Education Area
« Last post by CTCREP on August 14, 2019, 04:54:09 PM »
The felled trees have now been removed from the Education Area footpath,  so the riverside walk section is now useable. It is an attractive alternative to walking along the main path beside the sailing lake but few people use it as many are unaware of its existence. Even if they discover the entrance then they may be put off by the title "Childrens Education Area" and the fact that the entrance - down the cobbled track  - appears to lead down to an industrial area.  Please don't be put off because it deserves greater use and provides a pleasant picnic area although the Council has now removed the seating that was there. Most was fairly primitive and only suitable for Children rather than Adults.  Now it will probably need a bit more pressure on the Council to place a couple of seats down there, and how about a couple of swings. The Council really should be trying to improve the attractions within Etherow Country Park,  not simply allowing them to go back to nature, which has been their policy up to now. Please take a look, and if you have any influence over Stockport Council  then persuade them to take a positive attitude towards Etherow Country Park.

Local Issues / Donate to support Dan Bank Flower Man!
« Last post by admin on August 12, 2019, 04:35:02 PM »
A number of people have been wanting to show support for John the guy who spends huge effort keeping Dan Bank looking tidy. However, John has refused all offers of help in the way of tools, plants etc. In a FB discussion about this it was suggested that someone find out John's favourite charity so that people could donate to that instead.

This has now been done and John has chosen the Alzheimer’s Society.

Here's the link if you'd like to donate too:
Thank you to John Oldham Plastering - a traditional plasterer specialising in domestic plastering - for renewing sponsorship of The Marple Website for another year.

Not only that, but John has generously rounded up his invoice to £100 with the extra going to Friends of Marple Memorial Park!

Here's John's banner, which appears on the Forum, the Main Site and the Virtual Tour:

You can check out John's brilliant testimonials on his web site:

You can also see a number of case studies on the site:

Dawn is looking to expand the Terracycling scheme, and is also looking for people to help with it.  This is a portion of a recent email from Dawn (posted with her permission):

"I have the recycling in my shed and its a one woman endevour at the moment so I would welcome any help!
Hoping to expand by putting collection boxes into local shops and schools and I would need people to pick these up and sort.

If there is anywhere you visit regularly or work that you could approach about collecting recycling that would be amazing. If they are also a charity or school we could talk about including them in the pay outs .

Currently stopford cats collect the pet pouches and Im doubtful anyone else would like smelly pet food waste in their establishment (its different when you already keep animals!!) but the other streams are open to potential collectors. "

You can contact Dawn via the Greenbank Recycle for Charity Facebook page:

Volunteers are needed for the repair and recycle events which I hope will start in Marple very soon.  We need volunteers who can greet people and make tea, as well as people who can fix things.  Please complete the following form if you can help in anyway, and see Marple Repair and Recycle Facebook page for further information:

You have it again here in the second sentence. "WE" need volunteers who can.......  Who the WE  are is important to kmow if anyone is thinking of volunteering.
