Sun, fun and food have characterised the first two days of Audlem's Holiday at Home.
Twenty-four holidaymakers gathered on Monday in tropical temperatures. Fortunately, the hall at Audlem Methodist Church was nicely cool – just as well as a warming casserole was on the menu. After a lovely meal, a team of drivers took the holidaymakers to the Wedgwood Visitor Centre at Barlaston. An interesting tour followed, finishing at the restaurant for liquid refreshment.
On Tuesday, the sun shone again, but the temperature had dropped. A pub lunch at 'The Farmers Arms' set-up the holidaymakers for the rest of the day. A fascinating tour around 'Highfields', home of the Baker family, filled the afternoon. Early evening it was back to the Chapel for an evening of food and entertainment. A general knowledge quiz kept everyone alert, an old black-and-white film complete with 'live' cinema pianist made everyone laugh, and the evening was brought to a close by 'Back Row' singing a number of favourites.
The programme for the rest of the week is just as packed. At this rate, the holidaymakers will need a holiday next week to recover!
