Just joined mum's net and want to share advice, ideas for good facilities/things to do with kids in the Wigan/Standish area.....

only just seen this! I live in the standish area....what types of things to do are you after? indoor/ you have transport?


BethAndHerBrood Fri 26-Oct-07 20:31:39

I'm near Wigan too, but not seen this message before?!!

francesca1978 Sun 28-Oct-07 14:35:57

Wooo! I'm near Wigan too. It's a bit quiet in here isn't it?

SaoirsesMummy Mon 29-Oct-07 00:43:41

Im from wigan! xxxx

BethAndHerBrood Mon 29-Oct-07 19:39:10

There is something a bit odd going on with this thread - why does it say there's just one message? And why is it not always there?

Or is it just me?!hmm

pinkmook Fri 02-Nov-07 19:19:24

Hey, BethAHB, SaoirsesM and francesca!! Wooo, ridiculously excited by the fact I am no longer alone in this thread! Woop! Whereabouts in Wigan are you all? grin

BethAndHerBrood Fri 02-Nov-07 20:53:07

i live in Ashton, but spend a ridiculous amount of time in "Big Asda" and am quite partial to the Costa Coffee in the new arcade place.

pinkmook Mon 05-Nov-07 20:05:02

Oooh Don't know Ashton that well but know the big asda!! I keep missing everyone in this thread and then posting 3 days after the last comment! doh.

Francesca and Saoirsesmummy...where are you two from and where have you gone.!!

BethAndHerBrood Mon 05-Nov-07 20:17:38

Quite frankly, why would you know Ashton unless you lived there?? It's not the most exciting of places!! I've been to Standish once. To pick up a wheel my brother bought off ebay! We go to Haigh Hall sometimes, does that count?

pinkmook Tue 06-Nov-07 20:27:03

Ha! hey ashton can't be that wait you're right (kidding!)

Ah well it looks like we scared off the others grinshock

BethAndHerBrood Tue 06-Nov-07 20:51:40

I live in Ashton - I'm not easily scared!! I am clinging to this thread like my life depends on it, I hardly know anyone, just a chat is good!smile

If i live in Skem can i join this thread? smile There is nothing locally

francesca1978 Sun 18-Nov-07 23:42:55

Sorry I forgot to check back! I live in Tyldesley which I suppose is not really Wigan at all, but it's not Manchester either LOL!

Looks like an old thread but will jump in anywho's, I live near wigan, there's not so many of us I see.

chubbymummy Mon 07-Apr-08 09:43:34

I live between Wigan and St Helens so can I join in too please?

mrsmummy Fri 25-Apr-08 12:34:34


i am in winstanley, can i join??

chubbymummy Fri 25-Apr-08 12:38:01

Hello mrsmummy.
Nobody seems to use this thread as it doesn't come up in active conversations but hello anyway.

I'm in wigan too. Does anyone know of any baby yoga classes close to wigan?

athleticmum Mon 02-Jun-08 14:41:08

HI All & Beth and her brood.
I live in Ashton and it ain't that bad, very handy if you dont drive. Railway nearby, airports and local amenities close and a good midway point for most places like manchester and liverpool. Also lots of pubs, not like I can go in them with the kids. Don't you think the area is missing a great pub and restaurant with play area for mums to go and take the kids of any age?

sparkymummy Fri 13-Jun-08 20:05:07

Theres toddler yoga at Middlebrook in Horwich, though LOs need to be 2 and half. I'm not in Wigan but live nearby in Westhoughton

Ambi Sat 14-Jun-08 20:46:21

alkar, have you joined surestart? they have a few baby classes, not sure about the yoga one though.

Ambi Sat 14-Jun-08 20:47:33

I'll have a look for you. I do think that Wigan, although it's improving it's baby/toddler groups, there does need to be more.

alkar Sun 15-Jun-08 14:13:52

Thanks sparkymummy, I'll keep that in mind for when he's older.

Ambi - yes I've joined surestart, can't find a yoga class though. Was thinking of babysigning instead. Where are you from ???

Ambi Sun 15-Jun-08 17:55:19

I live in Lowton. Can't find any babysigning in Wigan but there's some in Warrington surestart centres, I'm hoping to go myself soon.
