Virtual Tour Updates / Re: The Virtual Time Tour of Marple
« Last post by admin on November 05, 2022, 12:32:21 PM »
A new album featuring Annie Pott's photo album has been added to the Virtual History Tour

I created a video slide-show of Annie's album back in December 2019 but although I prepared all the images for the VT too it looks like I omitted to upload them. This has been corrected now.


The slide-show version can be seen here: https://www.marple.website/community-projects/looking-for-stanley-jacks-letters-html.html

Post: Laurence Jackson, 7 Fairfax Close, Marple, Stockport SK6 6HH

Closing date for applications: 31 January 2023
Please note applications received after this date will not be accepted.

2022 was another successful year for Stockport Hydro Ltd as 16 local projects benefit from the 2022 Environmental Challenge Awards:

£7,600 donated to 16 community projects within Stockport

Stockport Hydro Ltd is delighted to announce that £7,600, raised through the sale of renewable energy and donations by members, has been donated to 16 diverse environmental and educational projects locally. Thankfully this year it was possible to hold an awards ceremony at the Hydro once again and the weather certainly played ball, enabling Arthur Procter to take some wonderful photos.

Marple was well represented by All Saints and Rose Hill schools, MESS and Friends of Marple Memorial Park.

I am really sorry that the website is coming to an end.  I have used it for information of what is happening in Marple as I do not use Facebook and will not in the future.  I will also miss all the comments and arguments on various topics. 

Thank you Mark for all the time you have spent running the website.  I will miss it very much.

I'm also sad to see the forum wrapping up; it really has been useful on a number of key local topics over the years. Most traffic does seem to have moved to Facebook but I deleted my account years ago and I tend to rely on my wife to provide me with edited highlights from the couple of local groups. From what I've heard they seem to consist of people moaning about the usual, adverts for hair/nails, or yoof-spotting. There really doesn't seem to be any other option either; Nextdoor is even more toxic than Facebook and the other social media platforms aren't suited to local news.

Local newspapers were supposed to have morphed into "hyperlocal" sources but we've all seen that people would rather have "free" than pay for properly sourced local news. On that point, the MEN is now part of the Reach plc group and is identical to all the other former local newspapers...can I recommend people to subscribe to https://manchestermill.co.uk/ which is a quality long-form journalism project replacing much of what the MEN used to do.

Anyway, it has been and still is a pleasure to be involved in the forum. I've mentioned to Mark a couple of places where the content could go (e.g., archive.org and the Wayback Machine). Whatever happens, it's been a super-useful resource.

So long, and thanks for all the fish...
