Markets are held in Sandbach several times a week, since Queen Elizabeth I awarded a Royal Charter in 1579 for a market to be held in the town, and a fun fair in September.

In September 2008, Sandbach Town Council achieved Quality Status from the National Association of Local Councils. In July 2008, the Council succeeded in Sandbach becoming a Fairtrade Town.  This status was renewed in 2014.

Sandbach is a historic market town (see our Town Guide), noted for its Saxon Crosses in the cobbled Market Square, and historic buildings. It hosts several markets on Thursdays and Saturdays, and has a number of interesting specialist shops, and places to eat.

​NEW TOWN AND VILLAGE ENTRY SIGNS FOR SANDBACH

 

Sandbach Town Council is pleased to announce that new town and village entry signs are in the course of being installed at several key locations across Sandbach.

 

The project was started in 2009 by Cllr Graham Bell, who did an excellent job on the design and specification for the signs, but although a new sign at Wheelock Wharf was installed at that time, other signs were put on hold in the absence of funds.

 

Response to CEC Consultation:

A vacancy for a Councillor in the Ettiley Heath and Wheelock ward has arisen. Please see the notice below for full details.
