Looks a nice sunny day. He,s got lots to sing about. Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks to all the people that took and supplied all the interesting pics this year.

A Very Happy Christmas and best wishes for the coming year to all Wiganworlders at home and abroad. . A very big thank you to Brian, Ron and all the volunteers who work so hard throughout the year produce Wigan World.

Comment by joe graney on 25th December 2013 at 07:04

Comment by Harry C. on 25th December 2013 at 09:17
Saw him last Tuesday on my way to the baths.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 25th December 2013 at 09:20
Those barriers are everywhere!
I echo Tom Walsh`s comment.


Comment by Janice on 25th December 2013 at 09:31
Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoyed all the photos over the year. Here's to many more.


Comment by Jim Latham on 25th December 2013 at 10:44
a Merry Christmas to all readers of WW, and of course to members who are abroad. So all the best to you Derek out there in Canada. I'll be having a pint with your Roy in St. Judes tomorrow. We are looking at arranging a trip to Perpignan next July, to watch the Warriors take on the Catalans.
The chap on the photo seems a real lively sort of character, always playing, always smiling.
I hope we all have a happy 2014.


Comment by Rev David Long on 25th December 2013 at 11:05
Christmas Blessings on one and all.


Comment by Peter48 on 25th December 2013 at 12:09
No snow here in adelaide
But a very warm christmas to all the folks back home
And echoing toms words thanking all who contribute sensibly to WW
And all the best for 2014

I would like to add my wishes for a Happy Christmas to Brian and his team and all the brilliant photographers who have supplied the great pictures this past year. Also best wishes to all Ex-pats who get to see places of interest in their home town. Merry Christmas everybody.

Something for you all:
------------------
Photo-a-Day, What's it all about?
Its the pictures, and there's no doubt.

But for me there's more;
something called 'rapport'

with those who moan,
and those who groan,

those who see
and those, who with glee

express their joy

of this and that
and with a rat-a-tat-tat

give their views
with ahhs and oohs ~~~~~~
------------------

Intrigued by the name Derek Platt in Canada.Could it be you have a brother Roy & perhaps at one time lived in Beech Hill? Former Wiganer.


Comment by Derek Platt on 25th December 2013 at 22:17
Hi Dave Kelly, I do have a brother Roy and I lived in Beech Hill on Dawson Ave and Laburnum Grove. I'm sorry but I don't remember you. They say the memory goes first.


Comment by Lizzie Down under on 25th December 2013 at 22:51
Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to all....lovely photo Brian...look forward to many more....
Cheers!!!


Comment by Dave Kelly on 26th December 2013 at 03:23
Probably nothing wrong with memory Derek...I'm talking about 60 odd years ago & I'm not sure where or how I knew you. St Johns (school or youth club), or Sacred Heart,Thornleigh in Bolton...ring any bells? We've lived in Canada since '66


Comment by Derek Platt on 26th December 2013 at 17:25
Hi Dave, all the places you mentioned could have been applicable. I attended them all at one time or another. I came to Canada in 1980 and now live in Abbotsford BC.
