Communication from Dave Cole via facebook

Hi, I am unable to make the meeting but was very surprised to learn that the field was not run by the council. I have lived on Thornbrook Way for 8 years. Is it worth doing a leaflet drop to inform people as you may get more assistance and raise more funds.

on the point of fund raising, what about carols round a bonfire at Christmas? I’m sure the church would assist and the pub may well get some people calling in for a drink afterwards if people can park in the car park. You could sell tickets or send a collection tin round. also money could be made from selling hot drinks and maybe mince pies. plenty of time to arrange and with a bit of advertising in the church, pub and local schools i’m sure you would get a good turnout.

I’m happy to drop leaflets off or offer assistance where i can but with two young kids and a full time job i don’t have much time to offer but will do what i can.

Love the Carols idea

Start to arrange in partnership with Sandbach Voices DM/DC

Let them know that we’re getting into the Church newsletter

Date of next meeting: Mon 1st Nov
