Triple Awards for Friends of Memorial Park!

Stockport Greenspace Awards 2024Friends of Marple Memorial Park were pleased to welcome Mark and Gill Whittaker back to the park to receive three certificates and prizes in the 2024 Stockport Greenspace Volunteer Awards. They were presented by Councillor Grace Baynham, Cabinet Member for Parks, Highways & Transport Services, on Bank Holiday Monday 27th May.

Memorial Park volunteers won 3 out of 8 categories, with awards for "Achieving as a Team / Friends of Group" and "Working with Ambition" going to the group, and the "Innovation Award" to Mark himself. Each award includes a voucher for £100 to spend on the park, so an amazing £300 in all will be put to good use by our volunteers to improve and maintain the park.

Mark took the opportunity to thank the volunteers who've risen to the challenge of keeping the group going and the park looks set to go from strength to strength.
