From the wigan.gov.uk website - 'start your journey later, when the gritters have been out' - I haven't seen 1 all winter so that means don't go anywhere!

The gritters went passed our house four times. That much snow if they were going 24/7 wouldn't be any better. I see the bin men are round the town center with spades shifting the snow. well done lads

It looks nice but I bet it's a pain to try and get around.

Do you not have snow plows come by there to plow the streets when it snows? It doesn't snow a lot here either, but, we do plow the roads when it snows.

They dont plough the side roads Sammi,just the main roads.
