About us

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Sandbach Crosses

We meet fortnightly on Tuesday evening at 7.30 at Sandbach Rugby Union Football Club on Bradwall Road in Sandbach. There is plenty of room for all the club members to attend meetings and guests, potential new members and speakers to be invited.

Outgoing Joint Presidents Allan Jones (left) and Kath Neame (2nd left) with incoming Joint Presidents Jane Spencer (2nd right) and David Twidale (right).

Jane and David would like to thank the Club for electing us as your new joint Presidents for the new year. It is an honour and privilege to serve the Club.

Rotary is a massive, worldwide organisation and we have a lot to be proud of in the work Rotary does, and it is up to us to see that this good work continues to present Rotary in the very best of ways.

Within the Club, we have nomiated "Champions" in key areas who can draw on any club members expertise in the organisation of projects and events.

One of our aims for the coming year is to increase membership and growth for the future - thereby ensuring a strong and sustainable Club. As well as the past proven fund raising events such as the fashion show and Santa collections, we are proposing new events such as theatre visits, formal garden visits, film nights and a race night. We also have a number of interesting guest speakers lined up.

We shall continue to help with Sandbach becoming a "Dementia Friendly Town" with help from a number of committed members.

Finally, we have an established "Rotakids Club" at Elworth Hall Primary School which provides a further link to our local community.

The club is very sociable, with genuine friendships and wider interests between our members. This year, we are streamlining our business meetings, to allow more time for Rotary fellowship. We are also involving more of our members, to be more inclusive and share the volunteer workload across a strong team.

We have a solid club basis with fund-raising over Christmas (and Xmas tree recycling) and other strong events such as the recent skincare event in Sandbach Town Hall. We’ve always prided ourselves on doing our own thing, but I feel club members would benefit from greater involvement with the wider Rotary. To enable this,

·        Honorarium available to all members to subsidise personal involvement with other Rotary clubs

·        Encourage involvement in at least one multi-club community project or event and a corresponding international project.

My chosen charities are two-fold:

·        Alzheimer’s Society, but focussed on making Sandbach a dementia friendly community

·        MyelomaUK, on the recommendation of one of our new members Andrew Hinett.

We have the best communication facilities we’ve ever had, with David Walls managing the website, new press officer Jo Webb and Jean Billingsley looking after the club’s new Facebook page. I hope this will raise Rotary’s profile in Sandbach and promote and foster the club’s activities in the local community, as well as encourage local community-minded people to join us.

We should have a varied and interesting speaker programme as most have been/will be chosen by individual members.

Let’s all have an enjoyable year!
