The Partnership's Current Projects

Making Holmes Chapel a Dementia Friendly Village
Following the very successful example of Alsager Partnership, we are running a project to make Holmes Chapel a 'Dementia Friendly Village'.
 
This involves a number of things, including the following, which we hope to achieve over a period of 12-18 months;
Updates on the project will be provided regularly via the Community Newsletter and this website.

Working with garden designer, John Clowes, we are funding a sensory garden in the area between the entrance to the Fire Station and the entrance to the shopping precinct.
 
The project will involve the removal of the three trees currently in this area (not the ones in front of the fire station!) and clearing the existing area of all vegetation.  A path will be provided and the area will be planted with both fragrant and colourful flowers and shrubs.  A new tree will be planted to replace those removed at the start of the project.
 
Work on the landscaping is expected to take place week commencing 19th August.  Planting of the area will follow as soon as practicable afterwards.
 
The following plans can be viewed by clicking on the links:
  1. The outline design of the garden

Please note that ALL existing trees in this area need to be removed due to the number of roots spreading under the surface.
