Advertising Space.

If you would like to use this space to advertise your business or special forthcoming event, then please feel free to contact me via Email at paulgreen3@blueyonder.co.uk or greenp380@gmail.com for shared reward. Two email addresses because the first will soon no longer work. We look forward to hearing from you.

If you are interested in finding anything out about your family who may have once lived in Crooke, you can contact me, if you wish and I will try to find the answers to your questions? Better still, you may have more luck if you were to visit the 'Wigan World' site and that link can be found below the 'Canalside' entry lower down on this page.

The Crooke Hall Inn.

To help you decide whether you might like to try the food on offer, the Landlord has provided me with a four page menu for you to see what is on offer. Jan and I have been several times now and think it well worth a visit, but don't take our word for it, do go and try it for yourselves.

For further information either go to the Allgates Brewery site or email Dean directley via the links below. You can get other information if you take a look at 'Forthcoming Events' where forcasted events that are to happen will be published.

Canalside Activities.

This is a free programme run for the young people of Wigan run by Wigan Council's Outdoor Education Team. The idea is to help youngsters to learn how to stay safe by the water and to have a go canoeing. The reason why I have posted this is because Crooke is one of the venues within the programme and aught to be mentioned. This is a leaflet that was handed to me explaining what happens, where and when.

There are between 4 and 5 instructors who supervise the events, some on dry land and others in canoes with the youngsters. These are three of them.

Unfortunately, I cannot remember the names of the instructors but if you would like more information, the contact details are on the leaflet posted above. As it might be a little difficult for some to read, the number telephone number is 01942 769812 and the site address is outdooreducation@wigan.gov.uk .

In thanks for his generosity, I am posting his company flyer so that you can see what he sells and is available. Thanks again Simon.
