Calling all young people this August!
Introducing Alsager's Summer A-Z Challenge!
We're looking to see how creative you can be this August, as we launch one of first Summer Competitions. We'd like each participant to travel around our town (adhering to all social distancing measures of course) and get photos of locations or items that begin with each letter of the Alphabet!

Cheshire East has a Dementia Strategy Survey to encourage feedback from all areas, Professional, Carer, Care Home, Domicillary Care provider, etc,. so please read on and feel free to complete the survey personally from either a personal or professional pont of view - it is all anonymous.
We understand that for those living with dementia this online survey may provide some challenges, specifically in relation to those who may lack internet access. Should this survey launch be happening outside the confines of lockdown and social distancing, we would be ensuring that paper copies were distributed to such places as Libraries, GP surgeries etc, and these would then be collected up and input onto their system, but our current situation prevents this.

As we are starting to return to a new normal and venturing outside more often, these information cards are extremely helpful for people with severe learning difficulties in communicating with members of the public and police, that they may be unable to wear a mask or may be allowed to have close contact with others.
For more details and printable cards please read on..

As businesses are starting to re-open we wanted to collate all the information for you in one central place with contact numbers, opening times, if closed, what service they are providing, etc.
We aim to keep this as updated as possible for you, but we do advise customers to call businesses first.
We have also added community groups and clubs to this list, so please get in touch to be added along with all the details required (see last page of the list for those details needed)
PLEASE CHECK THE LIST TO SEE THAT YOUR BUSINNES/CLUB IS ON THERE OR IF DETAILS NEED UPDATING - THANK YOU

On Friday 8th May 2020, Alsager celebrated the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.
Celebrations were a little different than expected due to Covid-19 with the country still in lockdown and social distancing being enforced. But this certainly didnt stop our community in coming together to unite, but in keeping with the distancing rules.

Last week saw Alsager Partnership's first Memory Choir and was incredible fun for all those who attended.
Singing in a choir is a great way to socialise and is good for our wellbeing in so many ways. It lifts our spirits and reduces our stress levels - so it must be good! This choir is for everyone whether you already enjoy singing or think you can’t sing - community singing is for you.
