Grange Centre Welcomes Liverpool's Comedy Giant

Wigan Observer article page 23 21st Oct 2014
'A great day in the life of the community,' was how one person described Ken Dodd's visit to re-open The Grange Centre on Highfield Grange Ave last week.

Under the new management of Hope Special School Cllrs Paul Kenny and Clive Morgan joined centre users and Headteacher, Peter Dahlstrom in welcoming Doddy to Winstanley.

Despite a carefully organised agenda for the day, the Scouse Legend dispensed with the formalities and soon had everybody in roars of laughter.

On a serious note, it is good to see that in these difficult times that The Grange Centre is a great resource for community groups. We are blessed to have a resource in the Centre that not many other areas of the Borough can boast. We would encourage local residents to drop in and take a look at what is on offer!
