The Partnership's Current Projects
Following the very successful example of Alsager Partnership, we are running a project to make Holmes Chapel a 'Dementia Friendly
This involves a number of things, including the following, which we hope to achieve over a period of 12-18 months;
the residents of and businesses in the village aware of our dementia and its impact on the community
- Talking to the families and
cares of people who have dementia to fully understand what they need
- Building a list of 'Dementia Champions' and 'Dementia Friends'
with local retailers to make their shops Dementia Friendly
- Establishing 'Safe Havens'
- Starting a regular 'Memory Cafe'
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:

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