Suzie Warren on Bonfire night

Maybe we should do a poll asking all of the local pets, livestock and wildlife first.

Andy Laughton on Go-too bus service

10th November 2021 @ 5:38pm

I can confirm the Go Too bus service works really well. After you have booked your journey you get a message a little before your pick up time to confirm the arrival time. Far better than the normal bus which in my experience was nearly always late. I have on one occasion waited over half an hour, got fed up and walked back home only to see the bus go past the end of my drive as I got in my car! I could never work out how late the bus could be given the entire route took only 20-30 minutes. Must be all the traffic jams! Also runs into the evening which the normal bus service no longer does.

ken lee on Vehicle Charging Points

10th November 2021 @ 5:11pm

I notice vehicle charging points were mentioned at the Parish Council meeting.
I would like to say that personally I feel that such points should NOT be funded or subsidised by the Parish Council as many residents do not own cars and many that do will be forced off the road when electric vehicles become law anyway,
Any such points should be funded by Cheshire East or by local businesses who are the ones who will benefit by having them. Many of us already walk and any local disabled drivers will have charging points at their homes. I don't think we get many disabled people travelling 100 miles to do their local shopping.
I await the flack with great expectations.

How I miss Audlem Bonfire night! Would it be possible next year to have a bonfire and NORMAL fireworks by the football field or on Turnpike field? Do we really need display fireworks, music and fairground rides?
I'm sure some oldies like me, or families with young children, would be happy to have a simpler event, which doesn't necessarily attract so many people from outside the area. And it would be cheaper!!

Hi Lynn, the road is now fully open again

Hi Bill

The new Go-Too bus on-demand service should be good for your journey. I believe you would need to download the app first but haven't used it myself yet, but it does sound good.

Happy with cattle in suitable ratio to grassland to feed them. Wonder what USA figures are where there are many cows kept inside and presumably fed on crops which could feed people directly? The increase in cars is certainly astounding but so is the decrease in public transport in many localities.

Joy Hargreaves on Agricultural and climate change

5th November 2021 @ 10:41pm

Thank you James McGregor for your figures and comments. Might I add that, where there are cattle and sheep ,there are many acres of grass land, and the experts tell us that grassland is one of the finest crops for absorbing carbon. Worth remembering.

In a similar vein there was a good interview on Radio 4 some time ago involving a vegan and a lady welsh hill sheep farmer. The farmer asked the vegan for suggestions as to how she could make alternative living on the welsh hills, as she wasn't aware of any vegan food crops that could be grown there – he refused to answer the question.

In 1950 there were
10.6 million cattle in the UK
50,225,000 people in the UK
4 million licensed vehicles on the roads

In 2018 there were
9.9 million cattle in the UK (with an annual average population of 10.9 million since 1950)
66,460.000 people in the UK
38 million licensed vehicles on the roads

There were no records of commercial flights in the 1950s but ...
in 2004 there were 23 million commercial flights
in 2018 there were 38 million commercial flights
(this doesn't include private or freight flights)

I really would love to see the data that conclusively proves that cattle are the game changing contributor to global warming that the media would have us believe. Please let's remember that this is a community originally built on the back of agricultural and let's support our great hard working farmers in this time we're more and more they seem to be having the finger of blame well and truly pointed at them

Tracey Peel on Pover the Drover

3rd November 2021 @ 6:14pm


In rsponse to Celia, Jimmy was actually my great-grandfather.
His son was Sam.
Jimmy served in the First World War and was taken as POW but survived and returned to the area.
His older brothers George and James died many years before in a mining accident at Diglake Colliery.
It would be very interesting if you could tell me what Jimmy was like and what he liked to talk about.
Unfortunately, he led a life marred by drink thus ending up living in a caravan.

Hi Kate
We had a load done at Timpson's in Nantwich. Service was good, but can't recall the price, sorry.

2nd November 2021 @ 2:24pm

My parents have a load of family home movies on VHS tapes. I wondered if anyone knows of anywhere local that can put these into something digital, please?
There are places to send them away to, but they are irreplaceable so we would rather not post them.
