The New Years Eve event
We aim to mark the passing of the year 2019 in traditional manner as we have so done since we welcomed in the new millennium in 2000. Apart for the one year when it did not happen!.
This year we are again well on track to enjoy the camaraderie of being in the Square at Midnight on the 31st .
I am close to receiving the needed funds and I urge all who wish to give their support to let me have it asap as I have to now pay the company undertaking the firing.
As said before, please leave it for me at our newsagents, in the Lord C or direct to myself at
Buerton House, Buerton
The programme for the 31st night is --
- 2330 ish. Our great team of Campanologists will ring out the old year with muffled bells
- 2400 The Tower clock will strike the hour of 12
- 0003 The fireworks will burst in the sky overhead with lots of chrysanthemums etc and no cannons -- as quiet as I can make it.
- 0006 The bells will ring out clear to welcome in the New Year of 2020 and all that this new year will bring us.

Stay Connected at Audlem St James CE Primary SchoolThis week again I felt more like a Headteacher as we welcomed Year 6 back. We have seen over 80 children back this week which has been fantastic and lovely to feel more children in school. The warmth from the children and parents has been amazing and it has been reciprocated from staff. A letter has gone out that over the next few weeks we...
