What is Holmes Chapel Community Partnership?

Holmes Chapel Partnership is a voluntary organisation that works both independently, and, as part of a group formed of Partnerships from the surrounding towns. Its purpose is to facilitate projects and events which benefit the whole community in and around Holmes Chapel. Additionally, the Partnership is a Volunteer Coordination Point (VCP) within the Cheshire East Care Communities Area. The Partnership’s activities complement the work of Holmes Chapel Parish Council with whom it works closely, as well as with Cheshire East Council, local businesses, schools, clubs, organisations and, of course, residents.

 

Who is involved?

The Committee is made up of unpaid volunteers from the local community, plus representatives from Holmes Chapel Parish Council and Everybody Sport & Recreation. Finance provided by Cheshire East Council allows the Partnership to pay for the services of the Events & VCP Administrators, who undertake the administration of Events and VCP activities on a day-to-day basis.
