Sandbach Museum Opening Keeps History Alive
The grand opening of Sandbach School’s Museum took place this week after nearly a year in the making. The museum’s inspiration originally came from Tom Wade and Will Murphy, History students at Sandbach School’s Sixth Form. Their dedication caught the interest of Fiona Bruce MP who attended the inauguration and officially opened it to all students at the school.
The Museum was only able to come about thanks to the enthusiasm of students at the school and the commitment of its alumni, the Old Sandbachians. Tom and Will had previously set up a ‘pop-up’ museum and its success attracted plenty of attention from the local community. A more permanent museum that could continue to inspire future generations at the school seemed like a natural ‘next step’.
It wasn’t a hard sell; the idea was soon being backed by numerous local businesses and old Sandbachians. There was a real interest from our community for preserving our history and being able to have the museum set within the grounds of the historic Sandbach chapel, itself steeped in history, seemed more than apt.
Now, on permanent display, are a rich display of the School’s vast and varied history including cricket blazers, blueprints and trophies stretching back to the 1830s. Other highlights include a ‘Headmaster’s Award’ given for literature to F. Lunt who later fought and died in WW1, and exercise books on display dating back to the 1880s.
Fiona Bruce MP marked the museum’s inauguration by highlighting how important it was for a community to have resources like this to preserve local knowledge and history. She then honoured the school by opening the museum and thanked everyone who had worked so hard to help make Sandbach Museum a reality.
