  Comments Amazingly comprehensive. I noticed Joe Pey mentioned in a report about a donation to a cancer charity. I knew a P.C. of that name back in the late 60s when I worked at Wigan Magistrates' Court. I wondered if it was the same person. I'll certainly keep in touch with your site.

  Comments I'm an American, but lived in Wigan during the 1980s when I was the pastor of the Church of Christ in Platt Bridge (Victoria Road). My wife and I have many fond memories and good friends from there -- not to mention two daughters, both born there. Thanks for your very enjoyable and easy-to-navigate site.
