The new management team was ratified by Cheshire East Council in November and includes a Chair, two co-Vice chairs and an officer.
The new officers come from a range of professional backgrounds in project management, health, government funding and communications. They are all residents of Sandbach and offer their skills and experience voluntarily.
Sandbach Partnership was established in 2003 and has since evolved into a dynamic voluntary and community led organisation working with many local groups and statuary organisations. The Partnership is project and event driven, and can bid for funding from local councils and other funding bodies for projects that make a valuable contribution to the community.
The rejuvenated management team aims to improve collaboration in working with its current 24 members, together with town and county councils to enhance the quality of life for the benefit of the people of Sandbach and the surrounding area.
Helen Dorney, Chair commented:
‘It is great to have a new team in place which will bring a fresh perspective and approach to rejuvenate Sandbach Partnership. The Partnership is never more needed. In the current cost of living crisis budgets are stretched, in addition to any funding available from the local councils we will be exploring where we can bid for additional funding (that the local councils may not be able to access) to support the community groups and organisations who are our members.
We hope this will ensure that community events and projects can continue in Sandbach and surrounding areas that will enhance the lives of residents.’
The Partnership offers a range of help and support to its members, you can keep up to date with the activities of the Partnership and across the town via their Facebook Group – Sandbach Partnership.
