Avoid the queues at Audlem's Bonfire & Fireworks night on Saturday 2nd November– Tickets can be bought in advance at Audlem Post Office or online here
This is a fantastic evening, there's no need to organise your own display at home as our village event will blow you away with a fantastic pyrotechnic musical display by renowned Blitz Fireworks using the same system as that used in the Beijing Olympics display no less!
Organised annually by Audlem Special Events Team for nearly a decade and a half and featuring thousands (and thousands) of pounds worth of fireworks that will delight the crowds along with the traditional bonfire topped with 'Guys' made by the local Brownies, Cubs and Beavers.
Gates will open at 4pm, there will be fairground rides and food stalls including Fordhall Farm, the Bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and Fireworks at 7.00pm (all timings are approximate.)
Tickets for everyone are £5.00*, under 5s go free. All Children must be accompanied by Adults. No dogs please. And for the safety of all, please do not bring sparklers.
*Prices are the same as last year in spite of the rising costs of insurance, first aid and fireworks for public displays.
Please support this local event.
Meet on Audlem car park – The March Short ARS (Audlem Ramblers Society) walk is led by Beryl Wilson. This is her description:
The easy circular walk is just over five miles long, from Hales church, and follows mainly paved lanes.
There is a short, quite sharp uphill stretch of about 500 yds, on a cart track through a field. Even this can be avoided if preferred, rejoining the main group via a slightly shorter route along lanes. It's then along quiet lanes back to the church.
Dogs may need to be kept on a lead if sheep are in the surrounding fields.
There are no stiles, and the ground is generally good.
It is definitely no more than a two booter in bad weather, and shouldn't take more than two to two and a half hours to complete.
Hales is about 20mins from Audlem. Meet in the Audlem car park by 9.30 am, to start the walk by 10.00 am if possible.
Audlem St James' School – The school has successfully bid for 140 free hedging trees from the Woodland Trust for the school and they are asking for assistance in helping to plant them on Saturday 28th March. This will help the school complete the next stage of their outdoor plan incorporating hedging around the wildlife area and creating a border around the quiet/reflection and remember area.
All volunteers need to bring energy and a spade! The more adults with spades, the quicker the trees will be planted!
The Big Plant Up is planned to run from 9.00am – 11.00am – although it may finish earlier if all planting is done quickly!
Lord Combermere – The popular Tuesday Night Quiz with questions by Ralph Warburton and Mike Haines. Free food and prizes.
