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

Images of artefacts uploaded to the Virtual History Tour

I'm not sure if anyone still follows this topic but as it's been read more than 235,800 times, I though I should perhaps keep it going.

Today and yesterday a number of images of interesting artefacts have been uploaded. These include many that I've acquired over a long period of time and have now donated to Marple Local History Society Archives for safe keeping. These include: a Carriage Lamp from Marple Hall, a silver Rose Bowl from 1910 commemorating the return of a local MP, and a number of commemorative china items item, my favourite of which must be the John Jinks water jug from the Ring o' Bells that can be dated to 1878-1887 when John was Landlord of the pub.

Follow this link to see them all: https://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0







There are also some images of other items already in the society's archives. These include a painting of Brabyns Hall that used to hang in the hall, and what was known as the Apprentice Mug from Hollins Mill.

The Annual Tractor run in remembrance of Harvey Mitchell, Marple's own Lisa Messenger and Stuart Wainwright is Saturday 30 December this year.

According to the poster it is due to pass through Marple at approximately 2.30pm but this is an estimate only and will depend on traffic and other influences.

The route this year is from the A6 at High Lane, along Windlehurst Road, Hibbert Lane, Stockport Road, then along Strines Road to New Mills. Note this is the opposite direction to 2022!

The event is raising funds for The Christie and you can donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/page/tractorrun2023
