Photo-a-Day (Monday, 1st September, 2014)
A nice clean looking Wallgate, those tubs look like cut off Granny Smiths apples.
Nice photo, good to see plants in the town centre. But who chose the colour of the containers.
God awful ugly... the person responsible should be sacked!
Let us hope the vandals don't let us down.. and THEY do something about them.
The new road that passes Pottery rd, through to the saddle, is the best bit of road engineering since Wigan Council was formed. A quarter of a mile long.
Great shot Mick. I was intending taking the same photo this week. Who would have thought Wallgate could be like this.
I love this photo, and the containers, which are colourful and cheerful, after years of drabness in this area, a positive change. Vandals keep away!!
It was only when I saw the patrol car changing the film in the red-light camera in the third tree along that I realised why they had been put there - crafty beggers!
Not crafty at all Wayne, they're doing a job in catching speeding drivers going through those lights on red and who, quite easily, could kill or seriously injure the driver and any passengers of another vehicle if they hit it side on.
They're quite eye catching, but isn't there an old naval saying that red and green should never be seen.
what a waste of money in my oppinion when the council says it has to save money and is cutting much needy services for the disabled elderly and vunerable then spend cash on pea green pots
What a lovely good clear shot, well done, Mick.
Nice picture ,nice planting but who on earth chose the colour of the planters!!
They look much better from the side of the road. Thumbs up for me.
What could be more natural than green?! Its natures colour. Grass, trees, etc. well done Wigan council!
I think it brightens up the road nicely.
Superficial or what... What a pile of junk
Brilliant! Got to give Wigan council credit where its due. They've done a lot lately in order to make the town look brighter and modern. Its now time to do the same for the outskirts of Wigan.
They do, all over Wigan. But some areas don't respect them, you know who I mean, drunken yobs.
They've not done much for Hindley and Ince, Garry. However, I know what you mean re' the yobs.
I feel ill... This is embarrassing .
What's embarrising, Torri? Nothing there to make you feel ill. They're only plant-pots!
Hi, Jemmy, Maybe you,re right , but I just looked at it and thought Oh know! Maybe they will grow on me lol
