Guardian leads on Audlem's call for role in regional park

This week's Nantwich Guardian devotes its front page lead story to Audlem parish councillors' call for the village to be included in plans for the Weaver Valley Regional Park. Under the headline "So What About Us Then?" the paper reports that concerned Audlem councillors have vowed to fight for their share of the proposed £15 million bonanza for a pioneering regional park in the Weaver Valley.

Unfortunately, as reported in last week's Guardian, the current plans for the park stretch from Frodsham to Nantwich and do not include the upper Weaver including Audlem. Parish Councillor Mike Hill is reported in the story, saying: "The Weaver starts at Audlem, not Nantwich – it is virtually navigable from just outside the village. We are all part of the Weaver Valley but we are not being included. We have entered into tourism with maximum enthusiasm – we now have our own Tourist Information Centre and as a village we are concentrating heavily on tourism."

With the project aiming to support regeneration, promote tourism, cultural heritage, recreation and develop land use, Mike Hill believes it is important for Audlem to be included in the plans.

The project leaders for the regional park are reported by the Guardian as not wishing to comment on the parish councillors' concerns. Hopefully, however, they are looking at their maps. As those passing over the two Weaver bridges on the A525 will notice, the Weaver passes not once, but twice, through Audlem. Even the river likes the village so much that it loops back on itself to have a second look!
