WIGAN Library is heading back in time with a “Back to the ’80s” day in aid of The Mayor’s Charity.

Staff will be wearing fancy dress from the decade in question and there will be retro activities, including a roller-skating demonstration, an 1980s karaoke, author Geoff Lee talking about his Four Seasons books and an animated film premiere.

Mayor, Coun Myra Whiteside, will be attending at 11am in support of her charity appeal for Wigan and Leigh Pensioners Link.

Rob Sanderson, 34, Customer Service Manager West for the Library said: “We’ve put a lot of planning into it, there’s all sorts going on on the day.

“It’s going to be good fun, staff have various ideas about what to dress up as so I can’t wait to see them!”

The fun at Wigan Life Centre library on Millgate start at 10am on August 16. For more information call 01942 489773.
