General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Its an old but re-occuring subject...What do you miss about Wigan?
I have now lived in the USA for over 5 years...I don't like certain aspects of American life same as I didn't like some of the British way of life...its all down to personal choices.
But...when it gets down to your origin of birth then Wigan is very special personally and I have no doubt Oldham...Preston...Lancaster...etc are personal to someone else.
Here in the USA people are very mobil and seldom live in the same town all their lives...so the connection doesn't mean to much to them here.
When I visited Wigan in 2004 I spent some time walking round the town taking in the friendliness of the people and soaking up the atmosphere of saturday hustle and bustle shopping...enjoyed every minute...miss it all
I have carved out a good life here...great wife and living in a beautiful national forest area...see todays harbours scene...
soooo...its all personal preference
