If this weather continues looks like the postal votes might win the day.

Thank you to Mark for hosting the discussions. It's good that they have been respectful and constructive; and it's been a great opportunity to introduce myself and put across my ideas.

So do you know who to vote for tomorrow in the Marple Ward elections?

The Marple Website invited all candidates to introduce themselves on the Community Forum way back in February.

All four of the Marple North Candidates have done so, as have two of the five Candidates for Marple South and High Lane, meaning that three others who want to be a councillor in that Ward didn't.

Each of the Candidates who did introduce themselves has their own thread and and some have been viewed and commented on much more than others. There are some interesting comments, questions and responses amongst these posts and maybe something will help you to decide who will get your cross in their box, if you haven't ready done so.

Good luck to all candidates tomorrow, let's hope the Marple Community wins with two great councillors it deserves!

Good luck to all candidates in the elections on Thursday. I was one of a group who went through this last year, it can be a nervous and somewhat solitary time. I believe anyone who stands deserves respect for stepping forward to represent their area.

From a Marple North perspective Malcolm Allan and I will welcome the new Councillor and we will be looking forward to dealing with our local challenges together.

Kind regards

Steve

Andrew Threlfall is the Green Party Candidate for Marple South and High Lane.

Thank you @Carolyn Leather can you please let Andrew know about the forum if you haven't already.

It would be great if he could introduce himself to us.

Just to update everyone: the full list of candidates has been published today: https://assets.ctfassets.net/ii3xdrqc6nfw/5dhuGd2QWrm6OCh2NO8nhg/2d1984341780bec10b982c8ed7843357/Notice_of_Election_Agents_4.pdf

That's right, thank you @Claire Vibert .

So this shows that @CllrKennyBlair (Independent) will be standing again in Marple South and High Lane and @DarranPalmer is the Conservative Candidate.

It would be good to hear from them both.

It also shows a new Marple South and High Lane candidate called Andrew Threlfall, who is also invited to introduce himself in the forum.

In Marple North it shows that @Hannah Sneddon will stand again as the Conservative Candidate.

It would good to hear more from everyone seeking our votes, and great to learn their views on traffic and Marple Swimming Pool, which seem to be the main preoccupation of folk on here!

This section of the forum, first set-up for the 2016 elections, has now been re-badged in preparation for the Local Councillor Elections in May 2019.

Marple North Councillor Annette Finnie is stepping down for personal reasons at the end of her current term. Since being elected as a Conservative Councillor for Marple South and High Lane 4 years ago Councillor Kenny Blair has become an Independent and has not yet declared if he will be standing again.

So who are the candidates for the two places  - one in Marple North and one in Marple South & High Lane - that are up for grabs in May?

A bit of detective work so far reveals the following snippets of news on this front:

Claire Vibert is standing as the Labour Candidate for Marple North.
Becky Senior is standing as the LibDem Candidate for Marple North.
Aron Thornley is standing as the LibDem candidate for Marple South and High Lane.
Yvonne Collier was due to stand as the Conservative Candidate for Marple South and High Lane (see later post).

@Claire Vibert is already registered on the forum and it would great you could introduce yourself on this board.

Becky Senior and Aron Thornley, it would be great if you could register and tell us about yourselves too.

@CllrKennyBlair is a registered member too and will hopefully advise his intentions when he is ready to do so.

If you know of any other candidates for Marple North or Marple South & High Lane please let us know so that their details can be promoted too.

Incumbent councillors @TomDowseMarpleSouth, @Malcolm Allan, @Steve Gribbon and @ColinMac, please point your colleagues here to introduce themselves.

For reference, here are last year's election results:

Update: Marple South and High Lane

Picked up from the latest copy of Inside Marple that @chriswallis labour is standing as Labour Candidate again in Marple South and High Lane.

Here's a link to the thread where Chris introduced himself last year:
