Broken Roundabout in Infants Play Area
The roundabout in the Infants Play Area has been broken and out of service for at least 6 weeks. It has never worked properly and soon after it was installed in 2008 the Friends of Memorial Park told the council it was not fit for purpose. Many promises to rectify the situation followed over the next 2.5 years but none were fulfilled and now the roundabout is unusable and the safe surface around it is getting worse every day.
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.
