Task Day 19 June 2021

Yesterday Friends of Marple Memorial Park gave the self-seeded Dock in the new wildflower meadow a good bashing and sowed more wildflower seed too.

The seed sown in autumn 2020 has been slow to take hold but the meadow is now showing signs of promise:

Friends of Memorial Park need access to an outside / accessible tap on Market Street or Derby Way please! Can you help?

Friends of the Park are working our way through retreating of the timber slats on the town centre benches but we'd also like to clean and paint the metal ends too. Ideally for this we would need access to an outside tap so we could wash and rinse the ends before painting. Does your premises or residence have a suitable tap we can use please?

Task Day 12 June 2021

Everything is growing so quickly now and there's lots of work for our volunteers!

Now that we are allowed to use power-tools in the park again we were able to catch-up on maintenance of the bandroom garden by strimming (with our new cordless strimmer) and mowing the grass. Lots more work on the flowerbeds too, which are now filling out nicely thanks to the sunshine.

We also gave shrubs alongside Hollins House a good pruning and others cleared weeds from the park entrance on Stockport Road, which has made a huge improvement.

Three more benches knocked off the list!

Another three Town Centre benches were sanded and treated by Friends of the Park yesterday, as we gradually make our way towards Stockport Road. Special thanks for refreshments from Aggie's Bar and to Forever Yours of Cheshire Bridal Shop for helping us out with parking because the car parks were all full.

A couple more Town Centre Benches treated while it's not raining!

We thought Derby Way would be quiet on a Sunday morning but there were lots of people out and about while we sanded and treated the two benches there.

It was good to see both cafes being well used and thank you to the Golden Plate and The Locks Coffee House and Bar for their generous provision of refreshments as we finished our chores.

A big thanks also to the kind gentleman who donated £20 to Friends of the Park!

2021 Town Centre Bench Maintenance Underway

At last Friends of Marple Memorial Park have been able to get our 2021 Town Centre Bench maintenance underway.

Thank you to All Things Nice and Cocolato (formerly the Magnificent Chocolate Company) for your treats and passers-by for your kind comments!

Task Day 1 May 2021

We were delighted by how many people thanked us for our efforts today!

Tasks included cutting down a dead willow in the woodland area and using the arisings to create a bug hotel, continuing our catch-up on bench refurbishments, litter-picking, clearing broken glass and lots of work on the main flowerbeds and war memorial beds. We also planted some donated fruit trees and unblocked a drain!

We were joined this time by a team from Marple Allotment Association, who did a lot of work to bring their fruit and veg plot in the park back to life.

We had an outdoor (socially distanced) tea break and park visitors kindly donated over £21 in our bucket. Thank you!

Task Day 17 April 2021

Friends of the Park officially get back to work at last!

Following clearance from the council to return to the park for our task days the weather played ball and treated us to some much needed sunshine.

The principal task was to get back on top of the main flowerbed maintenance but we also got stuck into treating of benches, removal of self-seeded saplings in the shrub beds and litter-picking throughout the park. We also planted some fruit bushes donated by a Marple resident and cleared out the Bowling Pavilion canopy ready for the start of the Bowling season.

Earlier this month we also got work back underway in the Bandroom Garden.

Friends of Marple Memorial Park Website Upgrade

We can't do Task Days at the moment but it's been head-down for most of January 2021 here at The Marple Website working on the upgrade / migration of the Friends of Marple Memorial Park website. Still a long way to go to get all those amazing task days moved across and there are still some projects and events to add too but there's plenty to read about to be going on with...

Task Day 4 November 2020

With Lockdown 2 looming we decided a final tidy-up of the main flowerbeds and war memorial beds was essential in order to be in the best possible shape for this year's Remembrance, whatever that may be. The main activities were weeding, trimming and tidying the beds, raising a new Remembrance flag and adding fresh wreaths to the railings at the war memorial and the timeline. We also managed a litter-pick, filled in ruts caused by a police vehicle in the park and did a serious and long overdue hack-back of the rhododendrons in one of the shrub beds.

We were joined by council officer Wayne, who did a final picking of stones from the wildflower meadow area too. The council team were also out in force, clearing leaves from the main drive and car park.
