Well done latics but I like RUGBY!!!!


Comment by Mick on 30th January 2014 at 07:12
Well done Mr Whelan you have done what you said you would do.
You made latics into a premier league team and you also saved Wigan rugby league club.

Not only that, you and the Ainscough brothers have built a state of the art youth centre and a new college for the youth of Wigan


Comment by Rev David Long on 30th January 2014 at 08:49
Funny old world, isn't it? This afternoon I'm returning to St Mary's to take the Funeral of avid Latics fan Keith Talbot.
Folk passing through Lower Ince may remember him as the street cleaner who flew a Latics flag from his yellow refuse barrow.
Sadly, he was seriously injured and permanently paralysed nearly ten years ago when he was struck by a bus in the town centre, and has spent his life since then cheering Latics on from his wheelchair.
A great image to include on the Service booklet, if that's okay, Brian?


Comment by Anne on 30th January 2014 at 11:26
Rev. David, did Keith have a brother Ian, if so I remember both of them well, their parents also. Sad to hear the news.


Comment by Rev David Long on 30th January 2014 at 17:01
Yes, Anne. We gave Keith a good send-off - including 'I'm a Believer' as we left the Crem.


Comment by Fred Mason on 30th January 2014 at 19:26
As a staunch ManCity fan and true Wiganer, I am proud of the lads and hope they get back in the Premiership soon.


Comment by Mick on 30th January 2014 at 20:14
Is that called doing foreigners in your trade Rev.


Comment by Rev David Long on 30th January 2014 at 21:04
Clergy Fees are not a perk on top of Stipends, Mick. They go into the Diocesan Stipends Fund via the local Church Council - and full-time Clergy are expected to cover for one another without additional payment (except for travel expenses if necessary). So there's no such thing as a 'foreigner'.
Some retired Clergy rely on receiving a proportion of the Fee for Funerals or Weddings to make up for, say, not having served long enough for a full Pension from the Church, or the expense of having to take out a mortgage after living in tied accommodation. This takes the load off full-time Clergy who are mostly running more than one Parish these days. So, again, it's not what I'd call a 'foreigner'.


Comment by Mick on 30th January 2014 at 22:15
Oh Ive learned something Rev, I also looked up what Stipends means never heard that word before.


Comment by Jerry M on 3rd February 2014 at 11:50
To Fred Mason, If you are a true Wiganer you should be a staunch Wigan Latics fan,then maybe that would go some way to getting them back in the premiership.
