A plucky trio of Sandbach women are taking on a grueling cycling challenge for charity.

Clare Curtis, Kim Morton and Lisa Jordan are preparing for the epic ride from London to Amsterdam from September 22 to 24.

They popped into Waitrose in Sandbach last month to seek sponsors for the trip, which they are taking on to raise money for St Luke’s Hospice.

Teen tearaway banned from Sandbach Park

A teenager who made the lives of people in Sandbach and Crewe a misery has been handed a criminal behaviour order banning her from parts of the towns for two years.

Konnie Looms, 18, of no fixed abode, had been causing extensive anti-social behaviour for more than a year, including assaults and criminal damage.

At Crewe Magistrates Court this month Looms was issued with the Criminal Behaviour Order, which prevents her from entering areas including The Commons, Sandbach Park, and High Street including the cobbles, unless given express permission by police to do so.

School cuts to hit Sandbach

Fairer Funding Meeting

Schools across South Cheshire are facing funding cuts – with Sandbach schools amongst the worst hit.

Local MP Fiona Bruce travelled to London with head teachers to urge ministers to rethink proposed funding changes.

The cuts, which are expected to be phased in next year, will see Sandbach School lose £142,000, while Sandbach High will see its budget cut by £138,000.

Criminal behaviour order for Sandbach man


A SANDBACH man, whose anti-social behaviour was making life a misery for residents and retailers, has been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order.

Nathan Tarry, 33, from Middlewich Road, had the order imposed on him by South and East Cheshire Magistrates following a string of incidents from public order offences to carrying knives.

The two-year order prevents him from behaving in an anti-social manner, using foul, abusive offensive or threatening behaviour, attempting to enter vehicles without permission, refusing to leave shop, commercial premises or licensed or hospital premises if asked to leave.

Sandbach man on Asian mission


A Sandbach fire cadet leader, who is raising funds for a school project in Nepal, has headed to Asia with his bike to help with fundraising.

Cycling in temperatures of over 30 degrees Ben Bradbury is currently on a 12-day cycling adventure, which will take him through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

In October next year Ben will accompany a team of cadets and leaders to Nepal to build much needed classrooms at a village school, but first the group need to raise over £70,000 for the project.

Winter wonderland for charity


Sandbach families are invited to a festive wonderland to celebrate Christmas in South Cheshire this year.

The event, based at Weston, is the work of 22-year-old business student Graham Witter and will be raising money for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

This is the fourth successive year that his family home, farm buildings and garden will be transformed into a magical festive spectacle, with a visit from Santa every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening in the run up to Christmas.
