I hope they're celebrating Andy Murray's fantastic victory at Wimbledon. Nothing whatsoever to do with Wigan I know but he has made this Wigganer feel so happy and proud.
Well done Andy!

Mick, women can drive boats as well as men, I also did locking, which requires some strength. It was lovely, whatever you were doing, sitting, steering or locking. it was a wonderful experience mooring just where we used to play as children.
