Many will know that well-known local personality, and Audlem's longest serving Parish Councillor, Bill Consterdine, has recently been in hospital. We're glad to say he's now on the road to recovery and today Bill gives his thoughts on coming back home.
"Last Saturday, the 8th February, saw my return to the village of Audlem after an enforced stay at the Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle for some internal plumbing to be carried out.
"My first night at home was not what I expected, suffering all sorts of pain and anxieties and therefore sleeping little. I can assure you all that the church clock keeps excellent time having heard all the hours between ten and six and most of the quarters as well. The hours seven and eight were missing as I had eventually gone off, but soon awoke as Nurse Rosemary brought me tea and porridge. Back went the curtains and there was the sun streaming over the village.
"Feeling a little brighter and sitting up well, the windows open, the first peel of changes came forth from the bells of St James the Great. What a wonderful sound, the bells beautifully rung echoing across the village – the village Rose and I have known as home for forty years and, as far as we are concerned, 'God's own village in South Cheshire.'
"Recovery starts here."
