St Martin's Low Marple Heritage Trust News and Events
This section of the web site is for details of future events, reports on past events and news concerning St Martin's Low Marple Heritage Trust and other matters relating to the church's history and heritage.
Forthcoming events and news:
The older part of the present church was consecrated on Friday 11 November 1870 (St Martin's Day). We had hoped to commemorate the occasion with various events, but sadly we cannot now celebrate during lockdown. The service which we had intended to hold on Wednesday 11th November at 6.30 pm will not now take place. But we hope to find an opportunity for commemoration at some point in the remainder of our anniversary year.
We hope during 2021 to follow through the events which we proposed for 2020, our ‘year of William Morris’. Dates will be fixed as soon as possible.
The Trustees are appointed on fixed terms and several will be stepping down shortly on completion of their terms. We are consequently looking for new Trustees to take on the running of what has become a very vibrant and successful charitable trust. Naturally many Trustees have a connection with the church, but we are also keen to find Trustees who would represent the cultural and community life of Marple and its area, or who have relevant specialist knowledge in art and architecture. We particularly need a new Treasurer: the Trust’s financial affairs are not very onerous, but we need a person with some financial experience. Trustees serve on a voluntary basis, but for the Treasurer post we offer a modest honorarium in recognition of services rendered. If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, please contact the Chair of Trustees:
The Rev. Ann Hyde, Mellor View, 25 St Martin’s Road, Marple, Stockport SK6 7BY.
