  Comments I have lived in Austalia for four years and all my family and friends are back in Wigan, Standish, Springview and it is great when I'm feeling a little homesick to log on and have a look at my home, makes me feel a little bit better.

  Comments Thank you for your comments on my website. I, therefore, had to come and look at your site as I am very nosey. I have to say your site is fantastic. It all looks really professional and the content is excellent. I particularly loved your old photo gallery. I really knew nothing about Wigan before I visited your site but, despite this, found your site really interesting and enjoyable. You must have spent lots of time on the website to get it as good as this. Well done!

  Comments I've only had a quick browse so far but it seems pretty interesting to me.
I lived in Wigan for 18 years, and liked it and its people. I'm not a Wiganer but was fonder of Lancashire than my own region, the north-east. My son Paul, now at university, is still a Latics fan despite not having lived in the town for many, many years.

  Comments Enjoyed looking through your site. While not an ex-Wiganner(?), I did study geology at Wigan Mining & Technical College in 1954-55!!
Does anyone remember a Wigan lass named Joan Ellis whose parents had a "baccy" shop in Wigan in the immediate post-war years? Joan was a very good swimmer and swam competetively in the Wigan area in the late 40's, early 50's. She would be about 65 years old now.
