One of outgoing Wigan Mayor Coun Yvonne Klieve’s final acts as first citizen was to hoist the standard in Believe Square helped by her mayoral cadet, consort, the council leader and the town hall’s chief executive.
Wigan Council is co-ordinating a host of events over the Queen’s long 70th jubilee weekend and has also authorised road closures for no fewer than 70 street parties around the borough.
