I was surprised to see the trunk had snapped off-must have been quite a gust that did that. So sad for all those who worked so hard on it. The weather was not kind to us for the switch on evening but did seem to pack the hall for the ADCA craft fair. Hope all the stall holders had a good day!
So sad to see the beautiful Christmas tree in the village has fallen down in the storm last night.
Hopefully it didn't damage anything else.
We are very lucky to have good volunteers to put it back up.
As of 7.30 this morning Monks lane blocked Audlem end with a trampoline and Hankelow end with a tree.
Just to second all the positive comments about our medical practise. We are fortunate indeed to have such an accessible service on our doorstep. Especially so, when you hear or read of the problems that friends and family further afield, are or have experienced with local medical provision in their own districts. Additionally, the nursing and medical care that Leighton Hospital have provided for an ongoing problem in our own family has been been faultless.
The NHS has never been perfect, but in my opinion, it is a damn sight better than the alternative option that Nigel Farage has been pedalling, privatization.
Yes Kay I agree the users of the charging points will be paying for the use of them but I was referring to the cost of the installation of the points. The installation cost should be met by the people who want to have a point in the village for public use not by every local resident.
Many residents do not even have a car, others that do have cars at present, many have no intention of changing to an electric one by personal choice, I include myself in that group. Those that are changing are having to provide and pay for their own charging facilities.
Electric vehicles, like building houses has become typical of the old saying of 'Putting the cart before the horse' – ie not having the infrastructure plan prepared first. Vehicles it is charging points, housing it is roads, schools and medical services.
Has anybody any thoughts or got any views on the effect of electric vehicles may have on present smaller vehicle service garages ? Will we be losing them in time because of it ?
I believe the suggestion for electric charging points located somewhere in Audlem, was more to do with attracting tourists to the village for the benefit of local business. (Also with the possibility that the electricity is paid for by the user.)
I agree that locals with electric vehicles are unlikely to use as they are more likely to have a charging point installed at home. However I daresay that Audlem may well miss the opportunity for this, as charging points spring up elsewhere, and thus they will become the stopping point destinations for electric vehicle owners.

May I draw residents' attention to new revised plans for the wedding venue at The Parkes, Monks, Lane (see 'Revised Plans' up loaded on 22nd November 2021 – search Cheshire East Planning Portal – application reference 21/3505N). Some comments have already been made by concerned members of the public. Any comments are to be made by 6 December 2021. Issues regarding noise can also be e mailed to: EnvironmentalProtection2@cheshireeast.gov.uk. I hope this assists – I suspect the majority of village residents who may still be adversely affected will not have received notification of these new plans.
Can anyone recommend someone to help with our ironing please?
Approximately one laundry basket every two weeks.

Has he been triple jabbed and will he be wearing a mask? asking for a friend
Sorry Lesley. You said you have seen it, not got it with you. My fault.
Hello Lesley. Is the Labrador a male please?
I was going to send a message into chatbox regarding the BBC comment. I stopped listening to their propaganda some time ago.
Colin, you seem to be suffering a severe case of lagomorphitis. If you would like specialist help I can recommend an excellent leporidiatrist skilled in treating such afflictions. They might also be able to treat any occurrence of cottontail afflicting you or indeed oryctolagus cuniculus although I believe a combination of myxomatosis and calicivirus have greatly reduced the probability of that.
I doubt you can Brer more rabbit talk, but if you so I suggest you approach Chas and Dave.
If anyone has lost a black lab, I have just seen one without a collar on the bridle way by Spout Farm
" editor's note:- we have been aware for some time of this, but our policy is to await official notice of such matters until it is confirmed by the BBC or other reputable journalistic sources." The BBC has become a tad biased and not that reputable of late�€�
Dear editor, in response to your question of whether the puns could get any worse? Well, let me assure you that they could have. I maybe should have mentioned that Mr Burrows was accompanied by his wife Jessica and 2 sons Peter and Warren. Mrs Burrows (who was originally from Whithutch) was very insistent I took a reward. I said gnaw way did I want anything but she just pelted me with chocolates, sweets and strangely Duracell batteries. It was so annoying and I got so angoray that I just wanted to thumper, but I didn't and they left which is good because I have completely run out puns, which bugs me. So as they say, that's your lop.
My wife and and I would like to add to the praise for the Stirling job medical practice has been doing , re flu jab roll out ,and especially during this pandemic , almost carrying on as usual , Where as many practices in surrounding area , you still cannot see a doctor , or go near the practice , well done to all the staff ,
Fully endorse Bob's comments.
Well said Elisabeth We are so lucky to be looked after by such a good team at the Medical Centre
Hi Terry, no I think you must be mistaken, as I can assure you a Mr Burrows from Hopley (a chap with mad hare) claimed said bunny, he was very grateful and offered me 2 bucks for my trouble but I said no, put your doe back in your pocket.
Are you sure that bunny has really been reunited with his family Colin? I only ask because I was sure I saw a lighted barbecue in your garden this evening followed a little later by a loud burp. If I now see lucky rabbit's feet on sale in Williams I think we'll all know where they came from!
Unfortunately in editing my admittedly long post the webteam have taken out the urls I put in as evidence of statements made. Since some of the criticism of Mr McGregor's posts was that he didn't supply urls you have undermined my position.
Furthermore, the final section has been truncated in a way that means it no longer makes sense.
Please would you either delete this somewhat mangled version of my original post and print my original one or just delete this one. I don't want the version you've printed to remain on the site under my name.
A huge shout out to Doctor Holden and the team for their stirling effort once again this evening for another flu vaccine roll out for absolutely dozens of locals..probably the last thing they wanted to do after a long day in the surgery was to throw open the doors on a freezing cold day!
I am pleased to say the lost rabbit was claimed by its owners today and they all lived happily ever after
