We recently became aware that people were finding the decline in the appearance of the cemetery distressing when visiting their loved ones. Being the forward thinking, proactive community organisation we are, we decided we should initiate the re-creation of the Friends of Sandbach Cemetery (FOSC) to work with Orbitas and ANSA to bring the cemetery back to it’s former glory and maybe one day, apply for the green flag status again.

Sandbach has a wealth of vounteers that make our Town what it is today!. This week we get the opportunity, through volunteers week, to officially say a massive thank you for the amazing work our many local groups and residents do.

Reopening-Survey-Results-v1.0-1Download We will be readvertising the survey with the hope to extend the directory and will republish when we get more responses. Dementia Friendly Sandbach will be in touch shortly, if they haven’t already. Grass Roots Disability will be in touch when we resume full activities.
As part of our commitment to support residents and businesses we have got together with 2 of our forum members, with a view to helping people who may be suffering from anxiety due to shielding. We hope the results can be used to plan what could be their first visit into town in a long time. We are also seizing the opportunity to ask businesses about future opportunities relating to Dementia Friendly Sandbach and Grass Roots Disability.

I am particularly proud of all the local groups we have helped and worked with, the many events
