Skating success

PLANS are being considered to increase use of a roller-skating rink for Wiganers.

This comes after Wigan Library introduced it as part of their themed ‘80s day which raised £83 for the Mayor Coun Myra Whiteside’s charity.

Coun Whiteside said: “I am hoping to arrange some further afternoons where young people can come and join in with the skating.”

Wigan library customer services manager, Rob Sanderson, said: “We’re hoping there will be many good things to come out of ‘80s day. Everybody said there was a nice vibe about the library.”

The library is run by Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust, in partnership with the Council.
