Re: Town Hall Tablets

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for your comments on my "Makerfield Rambler" series. Keep visiting, as I have a series on the history of the Town Hall planned for sometime in 2016. In the meanwhile my understanding is that the auction is going ahead at the Manchester City FC ground this Thursday. With regard to the tablets I am still waiting to hear back from Cllr Jenny Bullen. It does seem very late in the day to be attempting to save them for the town, given the imminent sale. I personally raised concerns about the future of the tablets with Wigan MBC officers back in 2013.
