Marple Bridge Association was established to promote the interests of the people who live or work in Marple Bridge and to make Marple Bridge as an attractive environment for residents, workers and visitors alike.
The Association organises various events including the summer street party and winter wonderland as well as events like the back to school walk. They provide the flowers , baskets and planters for bridge in bloom and maintain the peace garden.
This years street Winter Wonderland was a resounding success and was one of the best attended events we have ever had. There were 30+ Stalls, Marple Brass Band , Three Morris Troupes, The Pantonic all Stars and Santa arrived in style in his new sleigh kindly lent to us by the New Mills , Marple and District Rotary club.
Thanks to eveyone who helped organise this years event and special thanks to Tony Noble, Rainbows, The United Reformed Church, Mellor choir, all the locals schools for providing choirs. St Marys and Ludworth Schools for letting us use their car parks on the day. also a big thank you to Santa we realise its a very busy time for you this year and hope you had a safe trip back to the North Pole.
We are looking at organising a litter pick between the 2nd and 4th March to coincide with The Great British Spring Clean, further details will appear on the MBA Facebook page in due course.
The Summer Street Party will go ahead again this year and the committee is just discussing a date for the event.
