The opening of the cafe at Fur Clemt

At the grand opening were councillors Mary Callaghan, Pat Draper, Eileen Rigby, Sheila Ramsdale and cabinet member for communities Coun Chris Ready, plus council director Sonia Halliwell.

Fur Clemt’s Katy Brittain said: “Without the support from many people, Fur Clemt would not be able to do what we do.

"The cafe has been set up and supported by JJH building and contractors and Heinz have donated us tins to provide free meals for children.

"This will be particularly essential over the summer holidays.

"Our ongoing support from Wigan Council is extremely valuable to our service and ensures we can continue to support our community, and our councillors are amazing with their support for us.”
