Some traditional events will be going digital this year - as Wigan Rotary says, we have to do things a little differently because it is important to keep everyone safe this Christmas.
Zoom with Santa is on its way!
For a donation, you can book an individual visit with Santa from Mon 23rd Nov.

Sorry Arfur, I do know some wise men, but the trouble is their wisdom prevents them from being in a WW nativity.

What type of person gets a "comment removed" from a Christmas thread?

Message to Jo Anne
Sometime ago you gave an address of someone requesting Fidget muffs, unfortunately i can no longer find the post
I have been using up odd balls of wool and have six fidget muffs if you could suggest someone who could make use of them.

Jo anne mentions twiddle muff on this thread. I had one made for a relative

Thanks, First Mate.
Geraldine, I think Wigan Borough Dementia Friendly Community (formerly Wigan DAA) will be able to help. If you have difficulty contacting them I can try asking on Twitter if you like.
