When SPiCE did the original community consultation in 2014-2016 around both Sandringham Reserve and the playground, we also gathered lots of information from the community about what you love about Sandringham and would like to keep or improve. The SPiCE Vision Report was a snapshot of what was important to you back then, and we'd like to check in to see if your priorities and interests are still the same.
So we've made it really easy by creating a simple survey. With just 7 questions it only takes a few minutes to complete. We have included the key areas from the Vision Report and also left space for you to add further suggestions. This survey will help direct where SPiCE puts its time and energy in 2020 so we can be doing the things that matter to you.
Take the Make Sandringham Amazing Survey
Let us know what you love about Sandringham and what we all can be doing to make it even better!
An application has been made for a new liquor licence at 542 Sandringham Road next door to the medical centre. The application is for an off-licence and long hours are proposed. Many residents are concerned about the effect this will have on Sandringham Village, especially given the number of bottle shops already near by, including one within a minute's walk of this address. We understand Councillor Cathy Casey and the Local Board will be opposing this application, along with many other concerned groups and individuals.
We would like to share the below template for people to use to make their own submission against this liquor licence application. This template covers key issues that have been successful in other objections. Please feel free to make it your own by changing the words, cutting and pasting, adding your own thoughts or just picking the 1 or 2 points you care deeply about to include. You can copy and paste it into an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your submission must include your name, address and email address (signature not essential), and be emailed by 5 pm on Wednesday 18 December 2019.
Please join us for our last meeting of 2019
Sunday 8 December 4.30 pm - 6.30 pmat the Gribblehirst Hub. This will be a chance to get together with your Sandringham neighbourhood friends and let us know what you would like to do in 2020.
We will be puting together a team to help with SPiCE's Floral Carpet event scheduled for 7 March 2020 in Sandringham Reserve, looking at how best we communicate with you, and finding out where your energy is for projects next year such as greening Sandringham, improving the footpaths and village area, events in our village and local parks, art projects, environmental projects or whatever you think as a community should be happening. If you have a passion come along and share it and we can help make it a reality!
Bubbles, mince pies and fruit mince brownies will be provided. We hope to see you all there!
