Lord Combermere

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

This charity event reaches its climax in Audlem on Friday evening when the participants take part in the "Big Shave Off" at the Lord Combermere.

This year, their ranks have been joined by a young lady (described by Ralph as "very pretty") whose parents live in Audlem and who has been wearing a moustache of many shapes and sizes all month.

She has raised a total of £1200 for the cause so far, and Ralph has persuaded her to join the event on Friday evening.

So all are welcome to attend on Friday and watch the lads being returned to their (presumably) better-looking selves.

They will have put 13 years of their lives into making the Lord Combermere a focal point of village activity and it would be difficult to think of another couple who have contributed so much to...

I found this male sparrowhawk devouring a pigeon in our Audlem garden. He was so unconcerned by my presence that I was able to go back into the house to get my camera and then take many photographs from only about three metres away. I eventually left him to finish his meal. All that was visible later were the pigeon's legs and claws. A male sparrowhawk, I'm presuming to be the same one...
