  Comments Colin Burgess had posted a message and I found him through that. I used to be involved with Wigan Jazz Club, and the Folk Club at the Park Hotel. See Keth Roberts's message. We met up last weekend at the Old Ashtonians reunion, a great weekend. It sparked a few memories and I've been looking up one or two old friends. Anybody remember me???
I used to be the compere at Wigan Folk Club in the sixties, then went off on the Hippie Trail to India. I've done a few things since then which may be of passing interests to one or two old friends, if any of you pick
this up.

  Comments Fantastic! My mum and dad will love looking at this site.
They are too old to travel back to England now, this will please them. I lived in Bickershaw and attended Hindley and Abram Grammer School.
Came to Perth in 1967. Great to see Wigan and surrounds again. Been some great changes, (or some maybe not so great eg Central Park?)

  Comments Having spent the past week doing "homework" on Wigan, it was sheer pleasure to come across your site.
It is FANTASTIC, the best site I have come across. I've been a couple of times, and love Wigan, especially the people, they are so warm and friendly. I have been singing Wigan's praises so much that now my 16 yr old daughter and her friends want to see for themselves!!
We will be spending a week there in August.

  Comments A really good site. It broughts lots of memories flooding back. I left Orrell, Wigan in 1969, but still did pretty good on your Wigan Speyk. Loved the pictures of the pubs. I was born and lived for 28 years only a hundred yards from the Old Engine in Kitt Green, one of your featured pubs.

  Comments You sent Greg a couple of your websites and I started looking and I just couldn't stop.
We just found out that our GGrandparents are from around Wigan and Bolton. Hate to say I never heard of these places before and I think your Webpage sure bring me up-to-date. It is very exciting. Thank you so very much for all your hard work.
