Winter Wonderland, Marple Bridge – 2021

December 6th, 2021

Despite some of the worst wet and windy weather we have seen in many years, Winter Wonderland 2021 took place on Town Street, Marple Bridge on Saturday and the MBA Committee would like to thank everybody who came down to support the event.
Sadly a number of the stalls weren’t able to battle through the elements and some of the planned activities had to be altered at the last minute but the perseverance and resilience of those involved was truly unbelievable and a testament to our British grit!
Big thanks goes to everyone involved – the Pantonics, the Stockport Morris Dancers, all the local school choirs, Marple Brass Band, Mellor choir, the stallholders, Rainbows and the Marple Bridge United Reformed Church. Thanks also the traders especially Bridge Law who kindly hosted the Grotto, Father Christmas, and of course the organisers who have worked tirelessly for the last six months to make the event happen.
Due to unforeseeable circumstances, the programmes that usually drop through your door prior to the event didn’t arrive until the morning of the event. We aim to get these out to the majority of houses in Marple Bridge and Compstall over the next few days and copies will be available to pick up in the local pubs and post offices in Compstall and Marple Bridge . As always, the programme contains various articles in respect of local community groups and events held throughout the year; plus adverts from our kind sponsors and supporters who, without them, there wouldn’t be an MBA.
