Refurbished Bench - Marple Precinct

Marple Civic society recently sponsored the refurbishment of a bench in Marple Precinct. The installation of the bench was originally sponsored by the Civic                            Society and McNair Trust in 2004.








The Friends of Marple Memorial Park are undertaking the refurbishment of all the benches in the precinct and are looking for sponsorship for each bench.









If you are interesting in sponsoring a bench, you will need to be quick as numerous sponsors are coming forward now that the splendid results are there for all to see.
