Shevington village fete promises to be bigger and better than ever!

A village fete which has grown over the past few years promises to offer its biggest and best event in 2018! People in the local community of Shevington, Wigan, were disappointed in 2016 because the annnual Fete could not run due to lack of volunteers. Late last year, the committee saw an influx of willing volunteers and it was decided to hold the event on Saturday 30th June.

The North West - Rolling hills and industrial heritage

From world famous lakes to industrial heritage, the North West seems to have it all.
A coastline that takes in art, entertainment and breathtaking beauty, plus cities steeped in history yet striding ahead.
It’s a region of variety, not least for walkers who can stroll on gentle hills or conquer a mountain. A visit to the Lake District never fails to impress. Old, young, fit or otherwise, you can stride out amongst the stunning landscape here or gaze in awe at the picture postcard surroundings instead.
