House key on key ring with the letter G and a small heart found Saturday morning.
Handed in to Williams Newsagents.
Got plenty of grazing available for a period of time for sheep – plenty of trees for shelter – it is post and rail fencing but can't imagine they would go anywhere with all the grass plus road is dead end

Pair of spectacles found on the canal towpath yesterday.
They are now at Williams the newsagent waiting for owner to collect. Thanks
For Maps side by side...starting with the Tithe Map from 1841, then the first ordnance survey map 1875 to present day.
The tithe maps also show who owned and occupied a plot back then!
Just type in your postcode
Grazing taken. Sorry no longer available.
Many thanks to editor and Geoff for info about access to Leighton Hospital. I successfully used the A530 today, as the blockage is after the A&E turn.
For those interested in old maps, here is a great website where you can select what age map you would like to see and a side by side comparison. There use to be a park near by.
Could Roy Plume's "hole" be the top of a disused well?
I also recommend Haightons – they were recommended to us by friends who use them regularly. I've only used them once for a return trip to Whitchurch. Reliable, friendly, clean & smart, reasonably priced – what's not to like?
Can anyone recommend a company to jet wash (and de -weed ) a driveway please ?
The editor is correct, I drove that way last week.
As recommended to me, and subsequently used to Manchester airport; Haighton's Taxis – 01270 624574 or 07595 908879. They're based in Nantwich.
Thanks Darren – though I had of heard of it – I had never seen it. Quite a fascinating watch, and strange what passed as entertaining TV in those days ! Lovely to see the Shroppie Fly, Audlem Wharf and Audlem Mill in their 1960's – pre-developed state. The milk boy was fictitious of course. There was also a slightly out of sequence shot of the old railway line in the distance, taken as they moved along the pound below the bottom lock – and later nice shots across the Turnpike fields. Though obviously the still shot of the flight of "Audlem Locks" was inaccurate – I'm sure someone on here will know what flight that actually was though ?
Can anyone recommend a taxi/transfer service with a minibus to and from Manchester Airport please?
Please can anyone tell me which way to drive to Leighton at the moment. The Cheshire East website is totally confusing.
Not sure if anyone remembers a TV series back in the late 60's called the flower of Gloster it starred Richard O'callaghan and Annette Robertson who are travelling by narrow boat from Llangollen to London made by Granada television Audlem is featured on it and also Market Drayton have seen it on YouTube if anyone is interested
Hi , we need to have our oil tank moved , can anyone recommend a local business ?
My Mother had an enormous hornets nest in her garden compost bin (apparently a favourite target if dry) in Coxbank last year. These proved very difficult to deter, but did eventually leave. However, they were a dangerous nuisance to her (92 years old and allergic to bee stings !) and her near neighbours. However, I'm reliably informed they don't come back to a previous nest site. but please be advised to check your garden compost area, and keep it well hydrated, to avoid attracting them in the first place. They have a very nasty sting as unfortunately, one of her neighbours can testify.
A talk on Audlem's history sounds a great idea Celia if this can be arranged at some point. It would certainly benefit newcomers coming to live in Audlem and may even open the eyes of longstanding locals. I'm still learning about the buildings, shops and who lived where and I have known Audlem since 1971! Still a newcomer! There are people in the village that have an absolute wealth of knowledge who may contribute to the talk.
I have also seen 2 hornets this year (luckily not in the house) having never seen one before and have had a couple of similar reports from friends
Up until last year I had never seen a hornet in this country. So far this year we have had two in the house, Bagley Lane. Any one else noticed any?
Can anyone recommend a reliable person to empty my septic tank.
A couple of acres of grazing for sheep available for a couple of months. Grass a bit long for horses/ponies. Hatherton.
I see that Cheshire East have seen fit to leave all the closure signs up despite the road actually being open today. I wonder how many unnecessary detours with associated time and fuel wastage have resulted.
Tools for self reliance in Africa.
A charity based in Crickhowell aims to improve the lives of African artisans by providing them with quality refurbished, recycled hand tools and training.
I am collecting unwanted or damaged hand tools and sewing machines, which will be repaired and reconditioned for onward transmission to grass roots community groups in several African countries. Local men and women are trained in skills as carpenters, blacksmiths, and seamstresses; on completion of their training they are provided with an appropriate tool kit or sewing machine, which enables them to support their future needs. (ref: www.tfsrcymru.org.uk)
If you are able to help this cause, by offering tools which are no longer required please contact John Marcheselli on 01630 655289 and we will arrange to collect your donation – very many thanks.
