Royal Wedding Street Party

Following encouragement on the Audlem Online Chatbox for a street party to celebrate the forthcoming Royal nuptials on 29th April, an application has been submitted to Cheshire East council to close Stafford Street for a three day street party.

The closure will be from the New Bridge junction with Heathfield Road to the Square and will apply day and night as the festivities are expected to last well into the early hours on the Friday of the wedding and possibly the Saturday evening too. 

The application, which follows news last year that Cheshire East has simplified the approval process for street parties, has been for trestle tables to line the middle of the road which should accommodate seating for at least 50% of Audlem's population. 

The organisers say the tables and chairs will still have a flat surface to avoid drinks being spilled despite being placed on the incline by the church.  This will be achieved by the simple device of sawing off the lower parts of the 'up-hill' legs. Shorter people will be asked to sit at these western ends of the table.

We can report that plans for an anti-Royal protest have now been axed. Charles First of APRIL (Audlem Pro Revolution, Independence & Liberty) says: "Part of our manifesto is to block the A525 regularly. This human barricade of monarchist party-goers seems an alternative way to achieve this goal. So good luck to them."

As a mark of reconciliation and co-operation, sponsorship of the Audlem Street Party is being sought from the British Road Federation and the National Transport Association whose members are well acquainted with this particular stretch of road.
