What on earth is Wigan coning to?

I think it's great! Modern, striking - just what we need! And as a bonus paid for by someone else :)

I wonder why not a statue of our George (Formby) or perhaps the other George (Orwell) who put us on the map, so to speak???

Comment by: Dave on 16th December 2008 at 18:59

Probably because that's not the map that represents modern Wigan :)

Don't forget - people voted for this!
