  Comments excellent site bringing back lots of memories o my old home town.my wife margaret (A SCOT) who lived in wigan for 30 years also has fond memories of the town, indeed probably knows more wiganers than me, she was supervisor in the BAKED POTATO on the old bus station for 15 years. Keep up the good work your page is like a breath of fresh air in these long winter evenings.

An excellent site, which has progressed tremendously over the last couple of months. It's great to read all the news and the Wigan speyk section is brilliant. Are you planning to cover more on sport and events happening in Wigan on the site soon?

Best wishes
