Audley Parish’s New Cemetary

After many years of searching we at last have secured the land for a cemetery for the Parish.  Land for a cemetery has to meet certain regulations, the Borough Council looked at several areas, and finally decided the one that would best suit and meet the regulations is the land adjacent to Audley Cricket Club on Nantwich Road.  Once the decisions was made they were followed by long negotiations to obtain the land from the County Council.

 So at long last the land is in the ownership of the Borough Council, the necessary highways work has been completed.  There has been consultation with the residents living round the area, and as soon as the preperation work is completed we will once again have a cemetery for Audley Parish residents to lay their loved ones to rest.

Parish Council to maintain Minnie Pit memorial area

andrew-david-011.JPGAt the last meeting of Audley Rural Parish Council (18/11/10), Parish Councillor Trevor Sproston asked if the PC would now ensure that the grass cutting of this area be added to the PC’s grass cutting programme. This was agreed. The trees will also be looked after.

A concerned Halmer End resident contacted Andrew Wemyss to see if he could get something done to tidy this site. Andrew got the grass cut (within 1 day!),and Trevor ensured this will continue. Your Councillors working together-getting results.

Telephone Box, Scot Hay – update

After contacting BT several times asking for the traditional red telephone box in Scot Hay (one of the few remaining in the borough) to be repainted, BT has finally written back stating that this will be done. Hooray!

A lovely item of British history is finally getting looked after by it’s owner. We campaigned,and won, to keep the box in situ, now it’s nice to see it back in all it’s glory.

Thank you BT.
