The gentleman in the dark glasses is he not from Mia sure he stands at the tent on a saturday morning .
Well is he the gentleman that stands at the tent on Saturday morning looks like the same one with the megaphone in the photo with the banner .that mark has posted to night .
If it it is why is he with the councilars outside Iceland .reply would be nice

Congratulations to the team who won the £10,000!  A lot of hard work has been put into this bid by people who want Marple to thrive and it's really encouraging to see people in our community who put the graft in for the benefit of the rest of us.

Poor customer service is the key Duke, whilst I and other are made to feel like an inconvenience for attempting to buy a packet of nails or a newspaper we will continue to shop elsewhere.

I've never had bad service buying nails. I must  admit I've not exactly had a smile in one of the newsagents that is on the precinct

I think the thing is Duke to compete the service from local shops has to outstanding and memorable not just ok otherwise people will go elsewhere. The service I have had from the decorating store in Marple has been exceptional thus I tell people and go back just ok is not acceptable for small traders and down right rude when buying a newspaper makes you go to the co-op.

Congratulations to all involved in the 'Town Team' and thank you for the hard work that went into the Portas Bid.

I'm looking forward to seeing what the money will be used for.
Perhaps they could spend some on refurbishing the seats .

No, we can do that for nothing, the money must be spent in a way to support the local businesses to thrive. This could be very dull but practical such as a mass appeal to the valuation agency to get rates down. Shame landlords to be less greedy, some rents in Marple are outrageous. BUSINESSES NEED OVERHEADS DOWN and footfall up.

Footfall will be up when the new supermarkets come . So why have the seats not been done I've been banging on about this for twelve months the seats have not had anything done to them since they were installed years ago .perhaps local businesses need to start supporting local people prices for one not closing on Wednesdays
For another they need competition . Not grants

Totally agree and improved customer service. Not snarling at people because your walk into thier shop to buy something

The money was allocated to 'help make the town centre even more attractive to shoppers', not to line the pockets of local traders.

If the bid had never been submitted there wouldn't have been a consolation prize.

Putting together a bid takes time and effort. It's simply a matter of showing a bit of appreciation.

Wheels, no one is saying that you were "wrong". In fact you were probably right but in whinging sort of way. So in other words you were a right whinger. As I must confess I was. You Dave, "repetative"...Never.     

I just don't understand why one would congratulate people for a bid that failed??? Now whats wrong with that.
