Are there CCTV cameras on the public car park?
Following on from Cheshire East Council's 'pre-consultation with Town and Parish Councils' regarding their review and associated consultation on potential changes to Car Parking Charges, I will be attending a CE Councillor briefing this afternoon (18 September).
Whilst I will provide a full update thereafter, I anticipate that a 'Statutory Consultation with Businesses and Service Users' will open on Wednesday 20 September and run for six weeks.
I will provide a fuller update along with details of accessing the consultation, electronically or in writing, once I have heard from CEC Officers in this afternoon's meeting.
As you know Audlem Parish Council have already responded to 'the pre-consultation' and as per their Summary Report below of 11 September, helpfully intend to hold a public meeting.
"2. Car Parking Charges
Proposal by Cheshire East to impose car parking charges – APC has responded see https://www.audlem.org/news/cheshire-east-on-car-parking-charges.html and it is intended to hold a village meeting when the public consultation is announced."
Some of us remember using the Billiard Room when Arthur Cliffe was resident caretaker. Of an evening he would light a radiant hot coke fire and we could sit by it and play dominoes while others were using the table. Often he would sit with us and if we played poor billiards would tell us where we went wrong.
Now the Trustees plan to follow the current trend to depersonalisation. They plan to do away with the caretaker's flat and use the rooms for storage etc. I would be surprised if the rooms were not already so used without any legal shenanigans.
It would be a mistake for future Trustees to no longer have the flat and the possibility of using it as such. We live in uncertain times and it is possible that they will be told that a resident caretaker had become an insurance requirement.
One of our outdoor garden chair legs has broken and we are finding it difficult to replace. Can anyone help as regards making a new leg, or four new legs to fit. Further information available

Thank you to Jeremy (Nicholls) for his post on 8th September confirming information about the closure of Audlem station in the 1960s. We can see that Wikipedia, the source of our original information about the closure of Audlem station, is inaccurately citing Dr Beeching as being responsible for this.
Looking forward to hearing more about bygone times in relation to trains to Audlem prior to the closure of the railway station at this Thursday's Audlem History Society meeting (21st September).
Is this group still going? Would they like some wood? Or anyone else bits of old wardrobes, shelves, etc I seem to have lost the name of the organiser! any help appreciated thanks

Corbrook: my ongoing request for works to address 'recurrent flooding in the dip' are due to take place between 11 -24 September. These will include kerbing, upgrade of two of the existing gully tops to large storm gratings along with 40 square metres of carriageway patching.
Old Railway Bridge Swanbach: further diagnostic and jetting works are due to be undertaken between 18 – 22 September. CE Highways have invited me to visit the site during works; I'll take my spade!
As ever these announcements come with the caveat of 'subject to weather conditions' and will result in more traffic lights but lets hope we can finally make some progress.
I will provide a more general update on the various Cheshire East Consultations and United Utilities works on Woore Road shortly.
20 kg bag of multipurpose concrete unopened but prob about 5 years sitting in garage. Is it likely to be of any use? If not would it go in black bin?
I was interested to read the newsletter from the head of Audlem school and the final paragraph about teaching the children in one class how to add up Roman numerals. I had never considered this before and wrote the numbers down in the way we normally do a decimal addition and it doesn't work. Having checked on line how to do this, I am not so sure why we have all been told how smart the Roman's were. You'll have to check on line if you don't know how to do this or ask one of the children from Audlem school when they have had the tuition.
I agree with Pete Navis, that if Parking Charges are applied by Cheshire East, as proposed in a pre-consultation, this will make parking in the village centre even more difficult.
I encourage local parishioners to come forward and voice their opposition to such notions of car park charges, AND for the village to work as one and to share their ideas of why these would be detrimental to the village, in unison I suppose with the Audlem Parish Council. Once charges are started and infrastructure fitted to implement it, there's no way back!
I attended the last Parish Council meeting this week, where-in Lynette Hopkins communicated that a public consultation on the Car Park charges was out on the 6th September. Lynette, can you please share the link to the consultation?
If only there was a large piece of land owned by the village that we could use as additional parking for everyone haha.
Instead we are flooding the streets with cars.
