Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 29th November, 2023)
That looks amazing! I saw some reports on facebook from people who had been and they said it was lovely. Do they only do it on one night?
Lovely at least wigan can make something nice!
They look lovely,wish I'd been there...thank you David.
That's quite a spectacle . I like Sir Francis' light fantastic toe .
Anyone looking down from a passing plane might have felt they'd just glimpsed 'Shangra La ' .
It’s lovely to see the Park being made use of at this time of the year for the Festival of Light.
It looks very cheerful.
Irene, I think access is limited and that you have to buy a ticket in advance.
Nice picture though, thanks David.
Thankyou Colin. I just wondered as it seems an awful lot of trouble to set all those lights up for just one night.
Whatever our views on Brexit, the European Union provided a enormous amount of funding to revitalise Mesnes Park.
Its surprising what they can do with a few dozen polystyrene chip cartons and some twinkly lights isn't it David
No no no you didn't have to buy any tickets it was free, all has you needed to do was register, that way the organisers knew how many people were in Mesnes park in the dark.
Very nice, hope they didn't get vandalised.
Nice one, David.
As I’m constantly hearing about various councils up and down the country declaring themselves bankrupt … Nottingham being the latest … I find it comforting to learn that our very own council would appear , amazingly ,
to still remain in the black .
( for now at least ) .
Although if Wiggin council were dependent on brain cells rather than pounds sterling , then it clearly should have declared bankruptcy 30 or more years ago .
Can’t speak for you lot , but I like to see what my 114 quid a month gets spent on .
And this month it appears I’ve been chosen as one of a select group to help bolster the coffers of …. ( among others )…. Eon… for a spectacular light show in Mes - Nes park .
I can hardly barely contain myself waiting to see what this shower of window-lickers spend my £114.00 on next month .
But at least it was free to attend by all accounts .
Well , that would quite possibly have been the case , were it not for the inescapable fact that nothing in this life is actually free .
Filling potholes in the roads , just one of a plethora of more urgent issues isn’t free either , but at least it would have benefited a greater section of the community than the relatively small percentage that derive satisfaction from bright lights and other fairground attractions.
Plus it would have lasted a sight longer .
Think about it .
Ozy, a local authority cannot declare itself bankrupt as it is a government entity, just like a small shop belonging to a large chain of stores.
What it does is issue notice to the government of any impending insolvency and the government sorts it out.
