Co-op – Help Us Earn Rewards for The Marple Band

Please help toward The Marple Band New Uniform Fund

We urgently need to replace 30 old band uniforms to make Marple proud of us when we present ourselves at local and national events and contests.

The latest round of the Co-op Local Community Fund is now open, which means that Co-op members can choose to give 1% of what they spend on Co-op branded products and services to your cause.

By contributing, The Marple Band will be supported by Co-op Food stores and funeral homes. If you are a member please support us. If you are not a member please consider joining.

The Co-op has kick-started the fundraising with a share of the money from the 5p carrier bags and the reusable bags that have been sold in your community.

Click HERE to start making a difference.

If you’re a Co-op Member, you can keep an eye on the funds being raised for your cause by signing into your Co-op Membership account.

Keep Smiling Through – Marple Bridge Street Party a Success

Beneath rain-soaked gazebos and with soggy pork pies and union flags in hand, the residents of Marple Bridge were determined to celebrate the 90th birthday of our queen.

It had rained for most of the day but the ebbing and flowing community had only mildly dampened spirits whilst being entertained by a DJ and live music from the John Cooper band.
