Sandbach Crosses Rotary Club digs into the past

THE Rotary Club of Sandbach Crosses has raised almost £500 from a metal detecting rally held on fields between Sandbach and Brereton.
Sixty enthusiasts from across the North West attended the rally, organised by the Mold Historical Search Society, and searched the 55-acre area.
Society organiser Colin Sharratt said: “The most significant finds made on the day was a pilgrim’s ampulla made of lead, a 14th century medieval mirror, two Roman coins, four medieval silver coins, William III silver sixpences, Victorian silver sixpences, numerous copper coins of the Victorian and Georgian period and shoe buckles.”
Sandbach Crosses president Neville Thornhill said: “This is the second such charity event the club has organised.
