New Junction on M6

I have been calling for a new Junction on the M6. This would be situated between the Junction 27 and 26. If it is situated near Spring Road near Heinz then the road is already there to take it to Martland Mill.

By having this new junction it would easy traffic in Standish, Shevington, Pemberton and also Saddle Junction. Got to be a good idea to look at.

Wigan Council playing politics with jobs!

I noticed this week's Wigan Observer that this publication has an advertising wrap around it from Labour. This is calling the Government over all the jobs cuts and services that Labour are doing in Wigan Council. But one of the biggest supporters to the Labour Party, The Union called Unison.

They have claimed now that Labour are DOUBLING the level of cuts that are needed. This just demonstrates what I have said before that Wigan Council play politics with peoples' lives and jobs. This is a disgrace, people deserve better the taxpayers of Wigan deserve better!

I notice that still today that the Council has not cut Councillors perks including the £70 000 food bill for Councillors each year.

Great night last night.

What a fantastic night last night. the event at Ashfield House was a sell out. Everyone I spoke to said they really enjoyed it. The food was good and Andy Gregory was an excellent speaker. His timing was spot on and if you get chance to see him speak i would recommend it.

With Henderson Gill in he room with other Rugby legends including Shaun Wane it was a rugby night.

What was really good was how many people said they want to know when the next one is.

Thanks for all the support that came and look forward to seeing you soon.

Sportmans Dinner tonight.

After months of planning and organising we have arrived at tonights fund raiser at Ashfield House. This was arranged months ago and here we are fighting to Save Ashfield Park so I guess it is a rather fitting venue.

100 guests will be attending and it looks like it will be a great night.

If you are attending I will see you there.
