Review of 2022

The editors have decided to reprise the positive aspects of coming out of the pandemic

  • Churches have regained congregations (baptisms, weddings and funerals can be decently attended)
  • Back to 3 pubs! – and there is the White Lion at Hankelow!
  • Shops all surviving (some have changed hands). Indeed, Williams have now been established for over 160 years!
  • We still have a post office – so many have disappeared for good.
  • 2 new restaurants – Linden Stores and an even more recently opened Italian one.
  • Cafes have changed hands – but are still here!
  • New bike/running shop
  • Reinvigorated Parish Council – new councillors co-opted, new clerk (an experienced locum), and currently under Jackie Weaver's watchful eye! Elections in May 23.
  • Local groups such as Womens Institute, Probus and the History Society are meeting again
  • The football team and junior saints are having a very successful season
  • The tennis and cricket clubs are thriving again
  • Audlem Fete – a wonderful event on Turnpike
  • The Party in the Park – already heavily booked for next year (well done ASET!)
  • The Music Festival at the Marina was a great success and we look forward to next years (see recent article)
  • Audlem Voices held a recent concert in St James – and also the Bridge Inn! (Jenny Collis-Smith always looking for new talent – especially men)
  • Festival of Transport
  • Carols in the "Square" with the Crewe Brass Band
  • Brass in the village on Christmas Eve
  • Only one Charity Shop! (and a thriving good one it is!) Quite different to so many towns where multiple empty premises have become Charity shops)
  • Buses are running – with passengers!
  • ADCA – Audlem & District Community Action -providing welfare support to vulnerable and socially isolated adults and older people, as well as the ever-increasing number of carers
  • ADAS – Audlem & District Amenities Society – flowering beds, christmas trees and much more
  • AWEG – happily chasing bugs in various obscure corners. In fact fun guys went to Brown Moss to dicover many fungis!
  • Audlem Lass, Wheelyboat and Wheelybus are now active again in the season with Wheelybus helping ADCA with transport to their events also
  • ARS – Audlem Ramblers never really (Legally!) stopped
  • Turnpike – great progress on the footway across to Green Lane
  • Audlem theatre productions an Pantos have restarted (oh yes the have!)
  • Zumba in the Public Hall – Pilates locally
  • The Gym in the village – local and inexpensive – great funding for the public hall!
  • The public hall! A great place for functions – another big band dance coming up in 23

Most of these facts are or have been published on Audlem Online. We know we will have missed many positives about Audlem & District, and with a serious lack of news articles at present would be delighted to receive your Audlem & District highlights!

Compliments of the season and best wishes for the new year from the AOL editors!
