Antoinette Sandbach MP has welcomed news that local road-users will benefit from a dedicated £1,416,000 pothole fund for Cheshire East and West Councils, which will keep the country moving and build a country that works for everyone. 

Buy Local

Support your High Street and buy local if you can says Antoinette Sandbach Parliamentary Candidate for Eddisbury.  Antoinette was Shadow Minister for Rural Affairs in Wales for over two years and throughout the time she was in post she supported local producers and retailers, backing the NFU “Buy British” campaign.

Dementia Awareness

I am very keen to make sure that there is a long term commitment and a strategy for dementia in Eddisbury.Following the launch of the Alzheimer’s Society report, ‘Dementia 2014: Opportunity for Change’, I held a Dementia Awareness Day and I became the first AM in Wales to become a Dementia Friend.The report last year stated that there were 835,000 people in the UK who have dementia and called for 14 actions to ensure that people affected by dementia can live well with the condition.

Action for pollinators

I have always campaigned for the protection of our countryside environment particularly when it comes to pollinators.Last year I was successful in Wales in getting the Welsh Government to back my call for the protection of wildflowers in roadside verges.I had been campaigning, on behalf of Plantlife, to encourage local councils not to cut their grass verges, and was delighted when that issue was taken on board.

Affordable Childcare

Parents in Eddisbury are being urged to make sure that they take advantage of free early education for their children.The call comes from Antoinette Sandbach the Conservative parliamentary candidate for the constituency.Ms Sandbach, a long time campaigner for more funds to help working people afford childcare wants parents to be aware of the services on offer in their area.A report supplied by the Family and Childcare Trust shows that Eddisbury has 4,500 children aged between 0-4 years.
