IncluSive Social Events

Our Monthly Social

Our monthly get-togethers are on the second Sunday of the month from 7.30pm at The Old Hall, High Street, Sandbach, CW11 1AL.

This is a very welcoming and accessible pub where we catch up on plans and activities, have a natter, a laugh and enjoy the excellent beer (... and an occasional cheeky cheesecake). It’s an opportunity to talk about things we’d like to do or about issues that are bothering us. It’s a chance for prospective members or supporters to come and find out about who we are and what we do. Also, anyone is welcome to drop in and raise concerns about any access barriers they have encountered.

So come along and say ‘Hello’. One of our members would be very happy to meet you outside and then introduce you to the group. Please contact us to arrange this. If transport or availability of a personal assistant or carer might be an issue for you, again please do contact us – we may be able to help.

If you cannot make it to the Sunday gatherings but would be like to be involved in other social events or would just like to see improvements in disabled access, please get in touch.  


Dates for your diary (although most activities are free to members, advanced booking is required since numbers are usually limited due to the size of the venue, the amount of available accessible parking or the number of lifeguards etc)
