Monthly Events / Repair Cafe Marple [3rd Saturday each month]
« Last post by admin on September 14, 2023, 11:36:03 AM »
Repair Cafe Marple: Marple Senior Citizens' Hall 10am - 12noon, 3rd Saturday each month

The idea of the Repair Cafe is for members of the public to bring along items which are broken to see if they can be repaired, to prevent them going to landfill.

We hold a public Drop in Session on the third Saturday of every month at the Senior Citizens Hall in Marple Memorial Park.

We have a team of approximately twenty volunteers with various skills and expertise.

There are electricians, engineers, a clock mender, woodwork and ceramics and clothing repairers, a 3D printer expert and others with a mix of skills.

We are all volunteers and the drop in sessions are relaxed and friendly.

We have refreshment available and accept voluntary donations.

Kind regards

Leoni Lazenby and Repair Cafe Marple Team

Events Archive / Mellor Football Club Centenary year party [Saturday 28 October 2023]
« Last post by admin on September 12, 2023, 05:42:23 AM »
Mellor Football Club is celebrating its Centenary year with a special party.

Former players and officials are welcome to attend at the British Legion Club in Marple on October 28, starting at 7.00pm

Tickets (£25) are available via this link:

People can also contact Nick Farrow via Facebook or George Dearsley via

The club was founded in 1923 by Arthur Hambleton.

Mellor has played on a number of grounds over the years including Gibb Lane, Mellor and behind The George in nearby Compstall.

Its base is now at Wood Lane, Marple.

Mellor joined the Lancashire and Cheshire League in 1962 and has won a host of trophies, especially in the 1980s and in the past 15 years.

It currently runs three senior teams, a Vets team and a women’s team.

Hon president George Dearsley said:

“Mellor FC has been an important part of the community in the Mellor, Marple, Romiley and Bredbury areas for many years.

“It will be wonderful to see new and old faces and reminisce about past glories.”

Attached picture shows the Mellor First Team from the 1980s and (in black and white) the original Mellor team from 1923.

The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 13 September has been published.

Amongst the items being discussed are an update on Footpath 62 (Marple Dale) applications for the Ride of Remembrance and Brabyns Bonfire, and I understand a petition may be submitted on behalf of the community concerning ASB / dangerous riding in the area.

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.

Emergency Gas Works Brabyns Brow / Arkwright Road

A Customer Liaison Officer from Cadent has emailed the following this afternoon:

I was hoping that you could circulate a letter to your members for me regarding the works. There is also a link to Stockport Council page -

I understand that these works are an severe inconvenience and I sincerely apologise for this.

Essentially we will be working through the night tonight (6th September) and hopefully able to complete the works and then be reinstated in the existing excavation by the end of the week, there will still be works ongoing with hopefully a much less intrusive traffic management plan.

I hope this helps with the situation, if you need any further updates / information, please do not hesitate to contact me, my working hours are 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday.
