Latest (June 2021) from Audlem Mill:
"Gathering of Historic Boats, Audlem, 24/25 July
As you will know, the Government has postponed the removal of COVID restrictions until 19 July – at the earliest. The Downing Street briefing last night also particularly highlighted the significant, and growing, number of cases of COVID in the north west, which Audlem is in.
In these circumstances, it is impractical to go ahead with this year’s Gathering of Historic Boats at Audlem on 24/25 July. Beside the work and expense that would need to be committed over the next few weeks, there can be no guarantee that the date will not be put back again. We are also very concerned about the significant growth in COVID cases anticipated in the north west over the next few weeks.
We are therefore sorry to announce that we must cancel this year’s event, and we are sure you will understand the reasons. But please accept our apologies.
Hopefully we should be ok for next year! The event will be on 30/31 July 2022, and we hope to see you then.
Peter and Chris Silvester
