Has any post on Chatbox elicited such a rapid response? The lights seemingly have now been removed. It does rather beg the question as to why they were there in the first place. Little or no work seems to have been done, not even clearing up the mess left in the road. Does it take that long and that much disruption to remove a single stranded car?
We have an excellent butcher — Oxtail and Trotter — right in the centre of the village. Alan goes out of his way to provide excellent service and high quality, local produce. Why would you look elsewhere for your turkey?
Are we developing another 'Adderly lights' fiasco on the road out of Audlem opposite Corbrook Park? Lots of impressive signs and cones (no doubt in case if an ambulance fails to get through again, Cheshire East can point to the vast efforts being made to rectify this problem (which, in my memory has existed for at least thirty years) but no signs of any actual work being done. Moreover, should it rain heavily and the problem resurface, currently, the traffic will be forced into the deepest part of the flood. I'm sure that there's a cunning plan but perhaps it is time it was activated.
The Combermere Arms at Burleydam is popular and good.
Our village butcher is very good and sources locally. It is over three years since we were able to host the family Christmas but I had one from Alan then. Previously I have been happy with birds from Sutton's who farm around the cricket pitch but don't know if they still do them.
You don't have to go to a pub or out of Audlem for good food. Try the Old Priest-House Cafe. It also rivals a pub in being a good place to meet people.
Open Wednesday to Sunday.
Hi Nick, little bit of a drive but I would highly recommend Etzios Italian in Whitchurch. The food is excellent and freshly cooked, the staff are extremely helpful. You do need to book well in advance as very popular.
The Bhurtpore Inn in Aston, near Wrenbury. Never had a bad meal there!
Anyone know where to get a Turkey and Xmas tree within the Audlem area?
Does anyone know of any good pubs for food locally. I have tried the 3 in Audlem,several times and because I am new to the area, fancy a change.
Like bob-bee I have lived most of my life in ignorance of the Oxford comma. I came across it while researching the apostrophe s.
Using some sort of coded punctuation to avoid obscurity and eliminate ambiguity is just a quirky thing to do. It is better to make an appropriate choice of words and word order. An example from the internet is
"I went away with Betty a maid and a cook."
Is that 3 people,2 people or 1?
If 3 three then write "Betty and a maid and a cook."
If 2 then as appropriate "a maid Betty and a cook" or else "Betty and a maid cum cook."
If 1 then "cook cum maid Betty."
AnnT, "the upcoming travesty of an election."? Surely that is a political comment/point of view. Didn't think we mere mortals were allowed to make such observations on AOL.
With regards to your other points. More than happy that people to put in the effort to keep the village a vibrant and caring community, as long as it is not self serving.
To Splatt and Annt: Please read my post again. My "issue" is with the webteam.
I agree with Steph (Stephanie, Sunday name) regarding hiding behind a screen name. Whilst it is a poster's right to do so, it is also a screen to hide behind for potential bullying, trolling, and just been mean.
Content should be owned.
Come on Sonia, they always seem to publish a carping post from you. Surely it is right to publish details of at least two prospective candidates in the upcoming travesty of an election.
Bob is sorely missed at times like these, would be good to have 'hustings' in the village like last time but many of the people who do the village affairs are paddling like mad to keep floating, probably not a good analogy but it takes a lot of effort to keep the village a vibrant caring community.
They don't do it for thanks which is just as well then they are not disappointed. Getting continual negative feedback, brickbats etc., may put off more volunteers. Lay off Ralph please unless you can occasionally make the odd positive remark. Whatever you think of him he gets things done.
Hi — the dog was reunited with its owner on Sat night.
Totally agree with your comment Sonia. I think the point that some are treated differently or preferentially to the vast majority of AOL subscribers is a valid point.
