Go Local - Marple News

Go Local - Marple News run by Dharmesh and Nidhi Patel had a major refurbishment during the summer of 2020 and they held a Grand Opening Day on Saturday 18 July to relaunch the new shop. Dharmesh and Nedhi have been regular supporters of our Annual Family Treasure Hunt and it was thanks to this that they chose Friends of the Park to be the beneficiary of their raffle.

We were delighted to learn that the raffle raised a fantastic £221 for the park, which we collected on Wednesday 22 July and presented them with a thank you card and a certificate of appreciation. Dharmesh and Nidhi also agreed to take one of our collection boxes as a way of continuing their great support.
