What a day Whit Monday was. Not just for Catholics, everyone joined in. Chairs set out all along the routes and pubs open early morning.
Ann21,right about Puds & no bother not like today 2 pints the idiots want to take on the world.
We went to St Williams at Ince so we didn't walk with the Wigan churches, we had our own. This was still a big occasion though and we always carried our chairs to Darlington Street to watch the spectacle. These are a great set of photos bringing back lots of wonderful memories.
St Williams was our first job of the walking day season. Whit Sunday. Followed by St Marys on whit Monday. I was on the front row (Solo Trombone) for Wigan British Legion (town branch) Brass Band....Those were the days...;o)
