Welcome to Sandy Town Council

Platinum Jubilee Celebration

The communities of Sandy, Beeston and the surrounding area are invited to an outdoor music event on Thursday 2nd June 2022, between 2pm-10pm in the grounds of Sandye Place, in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The event will be free to enter and will not be ticketed.

As well as a variety of live music performances, the event programme will include the presentation of the Mayor of Sandy’s Community Awards and the lighting of a beacon, to form part of a beacon chain across the UK and Commonwealth on 2nd June 2022. Away from the stage, there will also be family activities and local information stands.

There will be separate spaces for standing or dancing by the stage and for sitting to enjoy the music with a picnic. Visitors will enjoy a street food market including hot food stalls and bars, and are also welcome to bring their own food and drinks.

The main event space is on large open playing fields, so guests are advised to wear suitable footwear and invited to bring their own camping chairs and blankets. When the beacon is lit at the end of the concert, the site will be dark, so guests are advised to bring a torch. Dogs will not be allowed into the event site.
There will be no vehicle access or parking on the site. Visitors can use the free town centre car park or may wish to use other facilities, such as the paid car parks at the train station.

Sandy Town Council

The Town Council has returned to face to face Council meetings held in the Council Chamber  However, measures such as encouraging the use of face coverings, ensuring there is additional ventilation, and providing hand sanitiser points has been implimented. 

Our reception continues to operate, and is open to the public on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am-4pm and Fridays from 9am-2pm. However, some measures, such as a social distancing screen, will be kept in place at present. Our Roman Sandy archaeological exhibit is also open to the public, although visitor numbers will be restricted for the safety of visitors, Councillors and staff.  

The Council would like to thank all the people of Sandy and Beeston for the patience, community spirit and self-sacrifice which they have demonstrated since the start of the COVID19 pandemic. We are especially indebted to all those volunteers and key workers whose invaluable work has supported, and continues to support our community throughout this crisis.
