Events around the Country
It is great to let others know what is happening elsewhere in the country. Not only does it help promote your event but also enables others to share your ideas.
Please let Sue Hale, Group Development Manager, have details and she will get them on to this page as soon as possible. Contact Sue on 0845 6520 443 or groups(at)uk-sands.org

Please call for more information and to let them know that you are coming along.
New Group in Staffordshire forming 1st April 2012
Cheshire East and North Staffs Sands have been successfully running for nearly 2 years. Due to the wide geography they cover and the number of parents they have been supporting, they have decided to form 2 Groups - Cheshire East Sands and Staffordshire Sands.
They are looking for volunteers to join them. If you are interested in being part of the new committee, please contact Carole, Cheshire East and North Staffs Sands Chair on chair.cens_sands(at)yahoo.co.uk
To launch the new Group of Staffordshire Sands there is a sponsored walk up Snowdon on 12th May. Over 70 walkers have signed up so far and monies raised will benefit both Groups.

It will be held at Haycombe Cemetery, Whiteway Road, Bath at 12pm on Saturday 13th October.
Refreshments will be served afterwards.
