Cyril Horsley was at Sandbach School from 1938. He is the oldest Sandbachian that we know. He attended St Peter’s Primary School in Elworth, where he was a friend the late Reg Dunning.

We are excited to be joining with the school to launch the Old Sandbachians Business Network. We have to be honest and let you know that the OSA has been a quiet partner in the organisation of this event. More
I write on a Saturday morning at 10:20, with storm Dennis battering the UK. My mind drifted back to such days at school. Somewhere in the region we would be smothering Vaseline on our legs to try and keep the cold out before heading onto a windswept rugby pitch. More
