ASET reports on the Proms

Alan Duncan of ASET, the Audlem Special Events Team, writes: "Once again our typically English village showed that it is forever England, when almost 2000 promenaders gathered on the playing field for the 8th annual Audlem Proms on the Park. Thoughts of the attractions of being Welsh: the free prescriptions, championship rugby team and free parking at the local hospital, were forgotten as we "belted out" Jerusalem.

"Concerned parishioners need no longer fear images of our beautiful village lifting up its canal banks and carrying them the 9 miles westward to the neighbouring principality. For the 2000 strong Audlemers (and friends) we remain in the Land of Hope and Glory, not the "Land of Our Fathers."

"This year the Proms was the biggest yet, with rousing performances by The Cheshire Community School of Samba, The Cheshire Constabulary Band and then the massed bands of The Lancashire Artillery Volunteers and The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment. The Grand Finale of The Last Night of The Proms music and Firework Spectacular was emotional, to say the least.

"And what of the announcement that this is the last proms, ever? There WILL be another popular "picnic in the park" event next summer. The ASET team is totally committed to putting on an annual outdoor event – and the format for 2009 will be different. Suggestions are invited from everyone, so get your thinking hats on and pass your ideas (big and small) to any member of the ASET team.

"And this is not the end for the Proms! It will be back but for now the ASET team is beginning to plan something a bit different for 2009. Watch out on the Audlem web site and Parish newsletter for more announcements as the plans develop."
