A Man of Insignificance to help Friends of the Park!
Following the launch of his new book "A Man of Insignificance" in November 2014 local author K.C. Dowling has chosen to support Friends of Marple Memorial Park by donating a share of the proceeds from its sale. Friends of the Park will receive a portion of the royalties from both direct local sales and Internet sales. Initially we propose to put any funds received toward the Marple Skatepark Development Project Community Funding but any longer term income from sales may be used to support other projects in the park too.
WWI Timeline Tribute to Men on War Memorial
Friends of Marple Memorial Park are commemorating the 1914-1918 WWI Centenaries with a timeline display in the park that we hope will illustrate the impact of the Great War on the Marple Community (and others like it across the country) and encourage local people to find out more about the Marple Men who sacrificed their lives 100 years ago.
The information on display will also be replicated here on this web site and on Social Media to bring it to the widest audience we can.
