We paid this visit to the area with the special intention of visiting our good friend Jimmy who is in a nursing home suffering with Parkinson’s.
Today we were collected from the site by his daughter Geraldine and then joined up with his wife Gwen and other daughter Jacqueline to visit him and take him out for lunch.
Unfortunately we never did get to see the centre of Wigan or the famous “Wigan Pier” so I can’t comment about them, we did however have an extensive drive around the area travelling through:
West Houghton, Chorley, Adlington, Standish and Euxton, not necessarily in that order. We had lunch in a carvery which normally has good views of the beauty spot Rivington, but unfortunately today it was clouded in mist. We were further entertained by Geraldine and husband Simon at their bungalow which is undergoing building work to provide a large extension, it will all be very nice when it’s finished.
Back at Homer for another exciting evening with Master Chef.
