The Association's story
Sandal Community Association serves a thriving neighbourhood on the outskirts of Wakefield, West Yorkshire. We were formed in 2004 with the aim of organising community events and keeping a watch on local planning and traffic issues.
The subscription is only £6 per household, a small amount each year but it helps us provide hanging baskets and Sandal’s annual cut Christmas tree, although we have planted a living tree which is growing strongly. To find out more about joining us, go to our Membership page.
Co-operation with other groups
The SCA has a track record of working closely with other local groups, including the Friends of Sandal Castle, Sandal Gardening Club, Sandal Art Group and the Sandal Fundraising Group for Wakefield Hospice, all of whom have pages on our website where you will find them in the Community drop-down list. We also run Facebook pages for the last two.
Our researchers have spent years digging out stories behind the names on local war memorials, building up a huge archive which you can explore on our War Dead pages.
