In Memory of Brian Openshaw
Brian who had rebuilt the Wishing Well and built the Windmill died in May of 2013 and it was decided that the area would be completed in his memory. Here is Eric our groundwork expert as the work began to make the Wigan bound side a fitting tribute to the memory of Brian.
