Welcome to the Marple Website

Compstall Village put on a fete to remember on the 19th May to celebrate the Royal Wedding!

Compstall Fete 2018

Organised by Compstall Community Council, the event was a roaring success with hundreds of people attending from the village and further afield.

Traditional fete games were enjoyed by young and old including a coconut shy, splat a rat, tombola, hook a duck, spin the wheel and many more.

Children and adults took part in sack races, egg and spoon races as well as a three legged race, although the chairmen of Compstall Community Council Phil Jones and Marple Bridge Association Phil Cooke didn’t get further than 10 feet in the three legged race due to sabotage!

The crowd was treated to music from Glossop Brass Band, baby lambs and goats were a magnet for the children as well as a rather sunburnt Vernon Bear.

Food and drink was provided by the Andrew Arms and cakes were donated by the village and sold on the day.

The event was filmed by the BBC who had a film crew at the event all day with the footage appearing on the local news.

Over £700 was raised from the event which will go towards the upkeep of the village defibrillator and future events in the village.

Thanks to everyone who helped on the day and leading up to the event as well as those who donated various raffle and tombola prizes.

Phil Cooke, MBA Chairman.
