This is the community web site for Marple in Stockport. It was started in 1998 to provide useful information for local people and potential visitors and to contribute to the fantastic community spirit that abounds in this small canal town on the edge of the peaks. It continues to do this with regular updates and lots of interaction with the local community.
Looking for something still on the old site? Please use this link.
Stockport Samaritans serve as a listening ear for our local community, with ordinary people supporting those struggling to cope, round the clock, every single day of the year. Stockport Samaritans offer emotional support by person, by telephone or by email across the whole of Stockport, as well as neighbouring areas.
Most people will have seen or heard the sad news that Marple Spice owner Mohammed Hedayatul Islam (Nowab) has passed away following the incident on Friday. Glad that the Marple Community is doing what it can to show support. Donations can be made to help the Children of Bangladesh in Mr Nowab's memory via Go Fund Me
