  Comments My very first "Real Luv" Peter Carr came from Bacup. Used to catch the bus from Accy to meet him. I was 17yrs old He was 20. He lived with a Sister Bernice (or Bernadette)at 36 Tong Lane). I am talking 1958 or thereabouts. Must say your site is terrific, & I will visit often. Thanks. All the best for the New Year. May it be a peaceful & happy one for all.

  Comments A very enjoyable few hours with your page. I left Higher Ince in 1960 aged 19 yrs. Done family tree searching in Scholes and Lancs. Over 1000 names in my family tree, including dozens of Wigan surnames and a 20 year study of the BOOTLE surname.
I have replied to some of the entries and would be happy to exchange information with others.

  Comments This site has helped me appreciate the greatness of our town, wigan is finally getting the recognition is deserves, after the burough achieved the excellent status in the latest inspections. Glad to see pictures of Angers as i was told so much about it at school but never saw it, so cheers! Plus what am glad to see is development, the arcade plan looks good, i hope more buildings are developed over the upcoming years to give wigan even more character and status
will be back regularly

  Comments To Tony Prescott of Southport.
Yes I do remember you working for the Makerfield Magistrates' Court, and I well remember playing many games of Table Tennis in our lunch hours. Hope you are keeping well and nice to see that you have not forgotten good old Wigan.
