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

I am researching my Chisnall/France family and my grX grandmother, Ann Chisnall was born in Hindley in 1828. I am wanting to know more about the community. I will bookmark this site for future reference. Any ideas where i can locate a good map of the region, including Hindley, on the web?

Warm regards from Portland, Oregon,

BRIAN : I love the News section of your website, its great to be able to keep up with all the news from back home, even though most of it is about drunks fighting and burglaries, armed robberies etc, but now and again there is a bit of good news thrown in eh?.

I'm coming to Wigan in March 2002 to see a close friend. Just wanted to "do some homework" in advance. Your site is excellent, I enjoyed the pictures and I'm very impressed with the beauty and history of the town.
Thanks for the info., I really look forward to seeing Wigan firsthand! :)
