Where's that statue of Billy Boston gone what used to be at the back?

Lynn Richardson that was from Hindley, Front 2nd left.

I thought it was a statue of Neil Rimmer

Aye, Lynn it is! On Bb cornet. I only know because I have the sleeve notes!

I always thought the statue was of George Formby and it was taken down on the orders of Lord (Haw Haw) Smith because he thought Formby degraded the good name of Wigan

I think 2nd down from top in the centre is Tony Ashton from Hindley.
