Photo-a-Day (Monday, 12th December, 2016)
Really nice photo, David.
What a rip off these markets are.
Why's that, Mick, Don't you like "foreigners" in your little town
Very nice David. I will have two crepe suzettes if you please.
I much prefer the road instead of block paving.It looked much better when all the busses were parked there instead of those garden sheds. Wigan is destroyed.
Ahhh, I waited for many a Corporation bus there. Looks like an early morning photo or is it all pedestrianised these days ?
I agree with you about the buses Garry. Thanks for the picture David.
Church clock says five past four,people are going home.
I don't blame 'em.
Helen of Troy, the clock says 4 05 pm. It's been pedestrianised for years and there are plans to spend yet more millions on another re- vamp. Total waste of time and money.
Oops ! I should learn to look more closely, sorry !
Look at all the chewing gum spit out all over the paving, they should be fined like smokers are for throwing cig butt ends away. Lets get it right.
What is wrong with disgusting chewing gum chewers? What a mess they make of the lovely block paving.
Of course it's been a problem for many years and near impossible to police.
Doesn't seem to have improved any since I left Wigan over 16 yrs ago.
In the USA this does not happen and considering there's a hell of a lot more gum addicts.
Britboy: it can be policed because in our local paper the Wigan Observer, we have a page section called a week in court, the amount of people who get fined for throwing cig ends on the floor is justified and the fine can be steep as well. So chewing gum should be treated in the same way.
Agree with you Garry ......but it's catching them doing it!! It's disgusting and very difficult to remove it.
Thanks all. Half of the mess on the ground is fallen leaves.
David, it's mostly gum.
Vb, your right it is catching them, but they catch people who throw gigs on the floor, same thing to me!
Put me in charge, I'd make a mint.
That chewing gum we can all clearly see, is all over the town not just here.
"Half of the mess on the ground is fallen leaves" :)
Fallen leaves my foot, I can't see one tree in sight. However, leaves WILL blow away in time but gum won't. The Council will need a power hose to shift the filth.
Dead leaves are brown not white.
Its chewing gum alright.
Mainly leaves, oh how it must pain Gary 2R's to be wrong so many times
If you care to look at David's close upload image it can be seen very clearly most obviously leaves, wrong again Larry
idiots are back, not educated enough to voice an opinion.
Some folk are not so bright.
I went along there this morning there was quite a substantial amount of chewing gum - white and definitely stuck and flattened to the ground! Not saying there wasn't any litter as well-also coming off the train station up the steps it was stuck on the rubber coating on every step. Now that will be hard to come off!
Vb is living proof.
Only one idiot Gary, and why do you always try to get the last word, LOOK AT THE CLOSE UP, LEAVES!
By Gum it's chewing gum!
Don't need close up, I can see perfectly.
Just "leave" it Gary, i win, you lose AGAIN
Went to Wigan this morning at there is chewing gum everywhere,but did not see anyone chewing gum
Perhaps the leaves have taken leave by now!
I blame the Yanks it's them who brought the gum over in WW2 !!! :-) :-)......
ha ha Vb. By gum there's gum everywhere.
Maybe you should try some gum Gary, anything that keeps that big gob closed
You mean my finger don't you lol.
Thankyou to all who happen to prove that it IS chewing gum on the pavement, by being there, Pw and Vb.
I thought the the silly comments had stopped, seems not.
Gary CLOSE UP PIC BY THE ACTUAL PHOTOGRAPHER (David) comfirms they are mostly leaves, i know you are a bit senile, pompus, narrow minded but PICTURE DOES NOT LIE, unlike YOU
Maybe Garrry if you opened your eyes and left that little bubble of Garyland you would see the error of your ways you obnoxious fool
Leaves 1 Gary 0
Well said HC.
Gary's quite correct bin there the paths around town is caked in gum.
Oh Alan go to bingo or something, What is it with you old un's, LEAVES LEAVES LEAVES, its there in close up plain to see, even for the older viewers, what do you want a guided tour
Even old senile foolscan see its mainly leaves
truewigana,there are leaves and gum on the photo.When I went to Wigan I could not believe how much chewing gum was on the floor ruining the block paving and some beautiful York stone all around the town.Garry has made a good comment about the problem .
Thank you Pw.
Pw i here what you say, not saying theres no gum on the streets of wigan town centre, but regarding this picture it is mainly leaves as David who took the photo showed in a close up shot, Not Wallgate station steps or anywhere else but here at the top of Marketplace, its mainly leaves, As for Gary who insists he's right (as per) how the hell he knows when he's probably never stepped foot outside of Ince for the last 20 years but Gary being Garrry seems to always want the last word, Can see this post going on for quite a while
Correct Pw but Garrrrry of Ince does not see any leaves, or refuses to admit he's wrong again
