I'm dreaming of a Wigan WN5 Christmas
There doesn't appear to be any football so welcome to the festive WN5 district of Wigan and The Mudhutter's Christmas Special.
As well as the tinsel and mistletoe stuff we've a load of the usual - just check the December file for all other articles. We'll alter the order around a bit over the next month or so to keep it fresh but for now Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Mudhuts Media and Bobbin Along

Meanwhile a thought for Christmas
Oh soulless town, oh dreary place,
bequeathed its charm and sold its face,
a chain-store culture with no grace,
enveloped you at such a pace.
Arcade so new, but not so grand,
you stole my home and raped the land,
snatching childhood from my hand,
replaced by all I cannot stand.
Blue fronts, green fronts, fronts the same,
same old culprits, same old names,
comfort lies to heal the lame,
conform their lives to fit the game.
A sinking place, ’neath waters drown,
a subjugated King, no crown,
it‘s with regret that this old town,
is void of culture, going down.
THIS is Wigan
