at least £500,000 but the show house above does have the train line behind. Will be a fantastic estate when its finished

To right Simon,after all the opposition to this site being built,how the authorities could have the audacity to allow it to be called Mere Oaks! Harry Pemberton must be turning in his grave!

Yes. I agree, the council have a lot to answer for, my child went to mere oaks and went on to another school in wigan , this closed last summer, now he travels 15 mile each morning to a school he does not like! These schools do not have all the equipment, teaching staff experience that mere oaks had, wigan you lost it big time and it will take years to get it right, unfortunately at our kids expense!
