Following your editorial in the Wigan Observer, October 9th, regarding Wigans prize in Britain in Bloom, as an avid member of the allotment & leisure gardener movement for the best part of twenty years, I am extremely proud my party has its origins in Wigan.
From the beautifully looked after train station at Hindley to the glorious Jubilee Park in Ashton and all the different selection of tubs and baskets in glorious flower, it certainly has put Wigan on the horticultural map of Britain.
Our party has a proud record of helping to improve the local environment in Wigan. Peter Franzen, Leader of the Community Action Party, through his community activities in Golborne, helped organise the planting of around 200,000 daffodils and crocus, which year after year results in large area's being covered in a dazzling ray of spring colour.
I will be encouraging all our activists to get involved and help Wigan do even better next year.
