And after a three-year gap due to the global pandemic, Wigan will once again be hosting a St George’s Day parade on Sunday April 24, beginning at the parish church at 11am.

More than 300 young people from uniformed organisations are set to take part, along with marching bands, and organisers are hoping for good weather and a good public turn-out.
