Comment - A right royal idea from the council

Share this article

WIGAN Council’s plan to waive the traffic regulation order fees for the royal wedding is a kind one.

There hasn’t been much to get excited about lately so this gesture from council officials is certain to get party-mad Wiganers smiling.

The authority has reported that applications for street parties have already been coming in, which only means that Wigan residents are hoping to make the most of the bank holiday celebration, and why not!

But one does wonder how many people will be off work “poorly” after the special day!
