Aigh, it's turned out nice again...

Well done, George.


Comment by Cyril on 19th September 2009 at 12:59
Nice one Judith. The statue is where it rightly belongs proudly placed for all to see, and not hidden away down a back arcade where it was previously.


Comment by Pat on 19th September 2009 at 13:23
Well done Judith - good photograph, you have caught the mood, cheery!!


Comment by dave marsh on 19th September 2009 at 13:35
Pity someone can't give him a lamp post, Judith.


Comment by David on 19th September 2009 at 17:13

Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th September 2009 at 17:58

Comment by A Bolton on 22nd September 2009 at 11:11
I agree with Ernest..George should be Eight foot tall and placed in the centre of Wigan..Or why not put him in Millgate and get rid of that scary,"ORRIBLE HEAD"!


Comment by Irene Roberts on 24th September 2009 at 13:26
Well said, A.Bolton...Talk about the face that sunk a thousand ships!...or should that be shops?! What an eyesore is that head in Millgate...and what on earth has it got to do with WIGAN? Apologies if this comment appears twice;think I entered wrong code.


Comment by Babyboomer on 7th November 2009 at 05:54
I agree with Dave, he should have a lamp post, there should be heaps stacked away somewhere!!
I have not seen th ead yet, will be back in Wigan next year. We should have monuments to the coal miners now THAT is WIGANs, best in the world. Viv in OZ
