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. From the friends of our local Parks, woodland & wildlife and walking groups , to the clean team and right though to our local well being and support groups like Grass Root Disability and Dementia

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.
