We are entering the general My Place Awards in category D. The project was created to improve the environment within Sandbank to this end we created Scenic Sandbank ltd. This company is a community group run by volunteers and recently achieved charitable status. Our group has in excess 60 active volunteers and has a membership of over 20% of the local residents. We have undertaken the restoration of green spaces throughout the village. We have also created an outdoor gym for the benefit of all ages including seniors and disabled people. We have also cleared footpaths of weeds and have reclaimed them to allow easier access for exercise (walking cycling etc) We also planted over 200 native trees and shrubs around the village for the benefit of wildlife.
