  Comments I have come to the conclusion that Whosfar Ted and his brother Ivefar Ted are actually Art, acting the goat. You can't hide, Art, your writing style gives you away. And if the 2012 Olympics ARE held in Wigan, it's to be hoped that Wigan Council aren't in charge of things 'cos they couldn't organise a p*$ in a brewery !

  Comments Don, what an absolute 'Joey' you are believing the olympics story. Bert (St. Helenser) was making it up, because he says he could make a Wiganer believe anything. And, guess what, he's right ! HA HA HA HAAAAAA !

  Comments i think it is just a joke about the olimpic games being held in wigan . i asked around and nobody else has heard about it. i think if it was true it would have been in the papers. can anybody confirm if it is true or if its just a roomer.

  Comments re the message left by bob ohara on 25th november. i remember billy woodcock who lived in herbet street/miry lane. my family and i were evacuated to wigan from liverpool, i was 4 when we arrived there, and we were there until i was 12. i have great memories of growing up there. billy was one of my mates, as was john locke, freddie billinge, arnold lord and various others. i would love to hear from anyone who remembers the mumford family from wilcock street.
