Sandbach Town Council Plans for Market Hall


Cheshire East Library Service regularly reviews library opening hours across the service.  This is to ensure that they provide an efficient and effective library service for customers, in their community, at the busiest time, and for the best value.


They want to open Sandbach Library an additional 2.5 hours per week.  These changes will mean they can use staff more effectively at busier times of the week.
