Whatever it is ....it's neither use nor ornament.... As they say!!!


Comment by DTease on 28th April 2017 at 15:21
Who is George Stood? Am I losing my faculties again?

'Would you like to swing on a star -carry moonbeams home in a jar'....tra la la la la la la la........or would you rather be a pig!


Comment by PeterP on 28th April 2017 at 17:18
George stood is the statue of George Formby and the photo is in the Grand Arcade


Comment by LDB on 28th April 2017 at 17:21
fred what has it got to do with Wigan council they do not own the Grand Arcade


Comment by Cyril on 28th April 2017 at 18:18
Very happy to see the statue of our George still in its prominent position, there was plans to return it to the insignificant position in the side arcade at the back, the George Formby Society wasn't pleased, maybe a word was had with John.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 28th April 2017 at 18:53
Fred - this is in the Grand Arcade - it has nothing to do with Wigan Council.

Nice shot Jane :)


Comment by Sam h on 28th April 2017 at 19:11
Puts things into perspective this , a council tax rise this month ,news today that rubish bins only being emptied every 3weeks instead of two,nice to see the councils money being spent on rubish yet again ,perhaps done by a relative on the council who knows.


Comment by Maureen on 28th April 2017 at 19:15
DTease..hes just in front of the cream pillar..and more or less facing the entrance to the Arcade.


Comment by Rev David Long on 28th April 2017 at 20:41
The Grand Arcade is private property - its internal decoration will not have been funded by Wigan Council. As for Council cuts, and rising Council tax, every Council is having to do the same throughout the country, as a result of severe cuts to the grants they're receiving from central government. It's not their fault....


Comment by Veronica on 28th April 2017 at 20:44
I believe DTease is just having his little joke at Mick's error in his sentence structure......:-)


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 28th April 2017 at 21:37
I wouldn't worry unduly about losing your faculties DTease. I'm constantly losing mine. They usually turn up down the back of the sofa, along with the t.v. remote and a couple of stray ginger nuts. There's probably stuff down there that I haven't seen for years. Only the other day I found a fluffy Werther's original, firmly attached to a Lithuanian passport. It can turn into quite an adventure going down there at times I can tell you....Fancy a trip to the Baltic States mate? Seems a shame to let a perfectly good passport go to waste.


Comment by Fred Mason on 28th April 2017 at 22:06
Nice photo, Jane.

Pity there is not many people in the mall. In Canada, the Malls are usually packed.


Comment by Howard P on 29th April 2017 at 19:07
I suspect Fred as a point Dave Oy.
Wigan Council give them planning permission.


Comment by Sgt Pepper on 30th April 2017 at 10:26
'The malls' in the UK are usually packed too. Just not this one.


Comment by Tracey on 30th April 2017 at 14:14
I like it!


Comment by Bod on 2nd May 2017 at 13:02
Rev David,I don't think it's the same throughout the country the northern towns seem to be hit far more than the south ,my sister lives in Chelsea ,they don't seem to be doing to badly with there spending , or is it still the great north south devide.
