Bernard Gribbin on Audlem Transport Festival 2021

2nd March 2021 @ 9:07am

Why should the car owners pay. They go to a lot of work and expense to appear for the enjoyment of the general public. A very small charge to people who like to see these beautiful and interesting machines , not only cars, would be more in keeping.. I'm sure that the existing arrangement of a bucket collection must bring in much more than a car entrance fee would. I hope Mr Faulkner is not one of the people who runs the other way when they see a bucket. Ok I know the owners enjoy the day and I am sure they help fill the bucket along with everyone else, as they appreciate the enjoyment of the day . Maybe the treasurer could tell us the breakdown of bucket collection values compared with a possible entrance fee.
I must add what a wonderful job the VOLUNTEER , Organisers, Marshall's, and BUCKET COLLECTORS do . THANK YOU EVERYONE.

Claire on Roving dog of Audlem

2nd March 2021 @ 8:56am

I wonder if this is the same dog! I was driving toward market Drayton on the a529 on green lane just out of Audlem and a big golden dog ran out of the big house on the left with the black iron gates nearly straight under my car! It seems it is left to roam freely! I have to say I was really upset as I nearly killed it and being a larger dog it could easily have come through my windscreen injuring me or my 4 year old daughter or 6 month old baby in the back. I'd also be horrified to have run over such a lovely dog. Luckily there were no other cars around as I would have had a horrible accident crossing into the other lane to avoid the poor thing. I'm going to report it to the police because of the danger it poses. These people have had a dog killed here before, his name was Max I believe, a lovely dog hit by a car in an avoidable accident. Why don't they learn and why it is ok to put others and the dog at risk!

Well done Billy for brightening up our days! You always manage to raise a smile!

Re Festival of Transport, Coronaviris lockdowns permitting the Turnpike Field would be the perfect place as social distancing would not be such a concern. The number of entries could be limited for this year which would also help with social distancing taking Hankelow into consideration.There are many Classic Car owners out there who would love the opportunity to dust their cars off and support this popular summer car show. I have often thought that it could be a fund raising event for local charities with a small donation from each owner as is usual with most car shows (£2 or £3 per car?)easily collected at the entrance gate.

Sue Davies on Billy Gibbons Band.

1st March 2021 @ 8:46am

The dance ticket brought back so many happy, youthful memories of Saturday night dances at Morris's ballroom in Shrewsbury. Also of the large, bustling restaurant on the 2nd floor – the place to be seen on a Saturday morning! Those were the days..... Does Jan happen to come from Shrewsbury? I recognise the names of some of the sponsors of the dance.

Billy Gibbons on Billy Gibbons Band.

1st March 2021 @ 7:02am

Many thanks to Peter and Jan for posting a picture of the BG Band ticket. I had to look twice because, as good as my memory is for things from years ago, I couldn't remember playing at that venue. Then I thought, has the Time Machine I invented a few months ago actually worked! Then I realised I'd dreampt it so forget that.
When the picture was posted I bet some people were worried I've started another band. Don't worry. I haven't...........yet.

If at all possible, I'd love a photo copy of the ticket for my Billy Gibbons (the original one, not me) Memoribillia folder I haven't yet started but I will as soon as I get a photo copy of one of his tickets. ;-)

Mat asks if AoL would be 'kind enough to post' his arrival in Audlem every Thursday. I want to say a big thank you to Mat for turning up and providing us with a much-appreciated service.

Carl Ringwood-Walker on Dog owners and and poo

24th February 2021 @ 10:06am

I owned a narrowboat, mooring at Overwater Marina for some years. Sadly, we no longer have the boat. I do however remember many walks along the towpath from Overwater into Audlem village and as a dog owner who ALWAYS clears up after our dogs, was sickened by the sheer volume of 'dog bombs' that weren't picked up and removed. Shared responsibility I think between dog owners and as Joe suggests, CRT who are very happy to take sizeable sums in license fees and really ought to provide bins for poo bags at regular intervals along every accessible stretch of towpath.

Peter Silvester on Dog owners and and poo

24th February 2021 @ 9:43am

Re poo along the towpath, four bins are provided, which are emptied by the Parish Council's lengthsman. There's one at Audlem Wharf, two above the main road bridge, and one near lock 14. It's not Canal & River Trust's responsibility to make provision. The responsibility is on the dog owner to take the bag to a bin. The canal towpath through Audlem happens to be a public footpath (most canal towpaths in Britain are not, and are used by the public under licence), and public footpaths come under Cheshire East Council, so you could ask them to provide more bins – but who will empty them?

Joe Sheldon on Dog owners and and poo

24th February 2021 @ 7:51am

I totally agree with Christine, but why don't CRT put poo bins along the towpath? Walking with a bag of poo for some time must be unpleasant. Boat owners pay enough to CRT in licences to keep the canal and towpath in order, so should they not be approached to do something, they must know its happening

Christine Knibbs on Dog owners and and poo

23rd February 2021 @ 4:40pm

Walking along the canal towpath today we counted 87 dog poo bags between bridges 79 and 80. Well done irresponsible dog owners. Apart from despoiling the countryside, dog fouling is against the law!

Peter Morgan on Loud bang last night

23rd February 2021 @ 4:14pm

Hi Nigel, we like you were disturbed by the very loud bang last night at an extremely inconsiderate hour and were wondering what it was. But whilst walking across the field at the back this morning, just below your paddock, I saw something sticking out of the grass at 45 degrees, which turned out to be, on closer inspection, the broken shaft of a substantial rocket that someone in the immediate vicinity had loosed off. It appeared to be in very good condition, no exposure to the elements, so I assume that this was the cause of the explosion which must have been upsetting to many of the local residents and their pets.

Roy Plume on Loud bang last night

I too heard the load bang last night although I thought another large bird had flown into the patio doors. I walked around the house but saw nothing. Some sort of shock wave maybe but no idea where from. The back of our house is alongside the brook in School lane, some way from you but it was still very noticeable.

Suzie Poole on Loud bang last night

23rd February 2021 @ 3:00pm

Hi Nigel

Yes I heard it loud and clear – I'm pretty sure it was a gun shot – sounded very close – over the direction of Parker's yard.


Nigel Mottershead on Loud bang last night

23rd February 2021 @ 1:25pm

Thanks to AoL, we have found out what the bang was.
It was indeed a rocket to commemorate anniversary the passing of the daughter of one of the neighbours. It turned out to be a bit louder than expected.
Thank you for letting us know and out thoughts are with you.
Nigel and Neighbours.

Nigel Mottershead on Loud bang last night

I few of us in the Mount Pleasant area were disturbed by a very loud bang or explosion at about 22:40 last night (22nd February).
Does anyone have any idea what it was and where it came from?
Gas tank?
Bird scarer?
Sonic boom?
It was loud enough to wake a few of us up and set dogs off barking.
