24 Class from the past This month’s Class from the Past is from Abraham Guest. It’s believed the photo was taken in the early 1960s. Maybe you can spot a familiar face? Do you have an old class photo you’d like to share? If so, why not email it to us on wigannews@ locallife247.co.uk
25 £10k for mining statue A local history group passionate about commemorating Wigan’s mining heritage with a statue have been given a £10,000 cash boost. Wigan Council presented Wigan Heritage and Mining Monument (WHAMM) with the cheque, bringing them one step closer to their £150,000 target. The money will fund a statue featuring a miner, pit brow lass and a child, which will sit near Wigan Town Hall, which was the old mining college. The group needs to raise £40,000 more to turn its dream into a reality. If you’d like to donate to the page, visit www.wiganminingstatue.org.uk where you will find a link to the group’s JustGiving page.
