Fame in Audlem

Home » Latest News » Local famous names

Karen Wollaston has written to Audlem Online with an interesting holiday idea from her son. She writes: "My son Elliot has asked me who the most famous person is in Audlem. Which got me thinking that maybe Audlem on line could do a feature(s) about people that are famous to us all...such as Stuart the milkman of 30 years plus, or Ralph and his endless efforts to support and provide for the village. Or our own favourite character who is famous in his own right — Billy Gibbons. Or even George Beaman, famous for his ice cream. Please let me know what you think."

Well we think it will be an interesting and light-hearted idea over the Christmas and New Year break. So, amusing and serious suggestions will be welcome — send via the Contact page or to editor@audlem.org">editor@audlem.org. The names that Karen mentions are certainly a very good start.

End of the Road!The way humans hunt, eagle eyed for parking spaces and the way animals hunt for food are not as different as you might think. Both are foraging for the best on offer, regardless of risk, within limited familiar confines, ignoring the audacity of any law that paints yellow lines on many of its most desirable food collecting areas.The yellow lines outside the Coop are a beacon...
