I write this as a new member of Audlem Parish Council, who has decided that after many years of being a critic of the Council, I should instead endeavour to express my ideas and desires for positive outcomes for the village via my duties as a Councillor.
We are delighted to say that under the new Chairmanship of Steve Boyes and the addition of new and enthusiastic Councillors, APC now has a body of Village representatives who are willing and able to encounter new challenges and help the Village and its various Community groups in guiding the Village ever forwards. To this end, our chairman has set up internal working groups with defined duties and responsibilities.
Village Community Working Group
Councillors David Higham, Pat Salt, Suzie Warren, Paul Barrett, Lorna Matthews and myself make up the team whose remit is to work close with the over thirty groups that make up the fine spirit we have in Audlem.
Following the working group's inaugural meeting, we are posting this on the AudlemOnline website, as agreed with Councillor Steve Boyes. This done in the desire to be more informative with the community at large and to invite feedback from groups in Audlem.
It is for sure a great start that — in our inaugural meeting — we all stand together and we will begin to meet with all such groups over the next weeks and months to determine just how we can, as councillors, help you in your planning and financing.
We will publish a list of all those we have identified and ask that you tell me if we have missed any and confirm your contact that we will need to set in motion this very promising determination to help and indeed to be a truly active part of the community overall.

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...
