went pass these what ever there mean't to be the other day. and it got me thinking how much did it cost me as a working person to fund this pile of old tree roots.

People worry to much about cost when lots of the work around town has been done from volunteers like myself.Wigan looks great at the Min plenty of planters and displays around,Personally think Wigan council do a pritty job there is always plenty going on around town.

Earnest and D,your quite right,it is Collage Avenue,I always get these streets mixed up.
This area between the Town Hall And the
Life Centre is impressive ,maybe a new name would be appropriate ,Maypole Squre ,
a possibllity ,to commemorate the pit disaster ,showing a link to our mining heritage .any suggestions?.Regards Tom .

Those comments made by the Mick impersonator (LOKI) are highly inappropriate!

Comment by: Margaret Wall on 30th July 2012 at 19:00

Mick, you are a sick filthy low life and not in the least bit funny.
Brian, please ban the comments of this perverted moron.

Comment by: Disgusted on 30th July 2012 at 19:14

Mick? whoever you are I have just passed your comments regarding videoing young children onto the Greater Manchester Police. No doubt, in the not to distant future you will be getting a knock on the door.

Comment by: Ellen on 30th July 2012 at 19:49

To Disgusted; congratulations!(but if we don't know which Mick substitute is making these increasingly sick and moronic remarks, how can he be brought
down?)
To Brian;I and,I'm sure many others,agree with Margaret,....but how do we know when the real Mick is contributing??

Mick mustn't realise that he can be traced via his IP Address.

Comment by: Thomas(Tom)Walsh on 30th July 2012 at 21:51

I could not agree more with Margaret Wall and Disgusted ,I am of the opinion that the comments by impostor Mick,are completely
unacceptable ,whilst both are grossly offensive ,the second one is particularly
sickening.When comments are left it says your IP no will be logged.i think authorities may well take an interest. In the past when offensive remarks by this individual have been posted I have ignored them as I felt it was just to get a reaction,but this is beyond the pale.and I am sure all decent mined people will agree.Another sad part about it ,
Is these comments go all over the world.

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 30th July 2012 at 22:35

I agree with all the comments from Jenny`s at 18:55 to Tom`s at 21:51.
This Mick chap must be stopped.

Comment by: Janice on 30th July 2012 at 23:21

I agree with you all about Mick the Imposters comment. I love the banter and the wit that is often a part of photoa a day but that has really overstepped the mark. Action should be taken to ensure tha this Mick never be allowed to post comments again.

Comment by: Skeets on 31st July 2012 at 05:28

Unfortunately, therein lies the problem, Margaret Tom and Disgusted, who knows where in the world this sick so n so is? Hopefully the "authorities" will be able to track through other "authorities" and nail him?

Comment by: Skeets on 31st July 2012 at 05:34

I agree with Liam. To dirty H probably cost you less than 100th of 1 p for each rate payer in Wigan for this beautification. You complain loud when it's rough and untidy and complain of the minute cost to you to make it pretty. Just calm down and enjoy it.

Comment by: administrator on 31st July 2012 at 08:08

Jive Bunny, I think you are SPOT ON with the name you gave. but I think you will understand that I can't post it on here at this moment in time.
