Christmas 2020

Started by: jo anne (33248) 

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.

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.

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.
