The Canal and River Trust volunteers, based in Audlem, who keep our flight of locks in such excellent condition, are known as the "A" team.
Amongst their members is a budding lock keeper "Robbo" who, to date, has been the Team Chef – providing much needed and welcome food during their breaks.

However following a recent Team photocall he displayed a new talent, unbeknown to the Team, – that of a poet worthy maybe of the submission as Audlem Poet Laureate.

"Robbo" is second from the left at the back of the Team photograph and here is his poem :

Not quite the Dirty Dozen, too many for the Magnificent Seven..

But when we are together, the Shroppie becomes our heaven..

You will often find some of us here, to lend you a helping hand..

A lovely flight of 15 locks, that spreads over this pleasant land..

All the people we meet here are lovely, in fact they are the best..

Some of them may stay a short while, others just to sit and rest..

So if your ever in dear old Audlem, why not stop and say hello..

We are proud of this our lovely flight, as many of you may know..

We try and help in any way we can, and even go the extra mile..

Because the Audlem "A" team, will give you service with a smile..
