48 Class from the past

48 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@ Community day All local community groups, charities and good causes are invited to Wigan’s Community Day 2018. Back for the fifth year, the people of Wigan and their causes are welcome at the free event on Saturday, July 7 from 10am-4pm. Locals can raise their profile, recruit new members and volunteers, raise funds, promote their cause, provide information and advice, and sell merchandise to thousands of local people who will be at the event. Participants will be given a 9ft wide frontage along Standishgate to advertise their group as they see fit. Organisers Wigan Rotary Club have obtained the necessary licences; all you have to do is turn up and join in! There’ll be a huge stage featuring performances from the Wigan Jazz Orchestra and talent from the local community providing entertainment throughout the day. All you have to do is pay a £10 deposit, which is returnable if you turn up, and observe a few simple rules. To find out more, visit Wigan Rotary Club’s website at
