The Community Group Pages are special pages produced in support of local clubs, non-profit making organisations and charities who wish to be part of the Marple Website Community. Way back in 1998 this was originally aimed at organisations who didn't have the means to create their own web site. Times have changed greatly since then and even if your group does have its own web site, Facebook page, or uses another Social Media platform, you may still benefit greatly from becoming part of this community to raise your profile and help people find you. It should even improve your web site's rankings in the search engines.
Get in touch if you would like to feature your group's activities here.
This is a free service with no charges and is open to local clubs, non-profit making organisations and charities in Marple and District only.

‘Friends of Etherow Country Park’ were formed in 2000 and have enjoyed working around this beautiful Park ever since. We meet up in the Etherow Country Park car park at 9.45am each Wednesday and work until 12 noon; drinks and biscuits are then served. There is no pressure to attend every week, we work when it suits us. Everyone over 18 is welcome. Come and join us!!
Following the Canal & River Trust’s “Revealing Oldknow’s Legacy” project, funded largely by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Friends of Oldknow’s Lime Kilns (FOLK) was formed with the aim of working with the council and Historic England to protect and stabilise the structures, while at the same time further enhancing the ‘pocket park’ that lies at the foot of the kilns.
GVRUA campaigns for better rail services on the Goyt Valley lines (Manchester Piccadilly to New Mills via Bredbury and to Rose Hill Marple via Hyde). We believe that station staff should be retained, that trains should continue to have a second member of staff on board, and that safety and access should be optimised for all passengers, especially women, younger people and anyone with disabilities.
The specific aim of the Trust is to support good causes in the Marple Area (this is defined as being within the previous U.D.C. boundary), the majority of the Trust's trustees must also reside within this boundary. This area includes not only Marple itself but also Marple Bridge, Mellor, Rose Hill, Hawk Green and a substantial part of High Lane.
