The winners of Cheshire’s Community Pride competition will be celebrated at a prize giving night at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall. A large gathering of Civic Leaders are expected to attend the event, which is being hosted this year by Cheshire West and Chester.
Last year, Sandbach was a well-deserved winner of the completion, backed up by a very strong community. It is a busy community with many local volunteers that strive to make Sandbach a vibrant place to live, work and visit. In total, 25 awards were presented to dozens of Villages from across Cheshire and Halton.
Commenting on the awards, Chairwoman, Kathy Benn MBE states ‘The Competition exemplifies the community spirit in all the villages. It demonstrates and emphasises just how much voluntary work is undertaken to keep Cheshire a vibrant County. We encourage villages to improve every aspect of village life which is under threat in so many different ways’.
This years guest speaker is Jamie Christon, Managing Director of Chester Zoo, who will be speaking about the ‘Islands at Chester Zoo.’
This competition is organised by Cheshire Community Action, with judges from all over the county giving their free time to judge all of the entries.
