Excellent idea fire and paramedics training with each other can only make operations more efficient and run smoothly. Where is it to be I wonder, Southgate?

Hopefully it will be on Southgate. Robin Park road is getting a bit full just now, which is a shame as it would be a better location.

The land to the left (coming from Wigan) of Southgate looks ideal.

Just after the Community Church? (Mitco Peck as was). There is to be a foolishly built retail/business park there I believe

Judging from this, it sounds like it will be built on the old site.

"The new purpose-built facility - the first in Greater Manchester - will replace the existing fire station in Robin Park Road, Newtown, and will see firefighters and paramedics work side by side from the site".

Joanne quoted that it's being built in Wigan town centre?

Anyroadup, being in the same building doesn't exactly mean 'joining forces'. You're not going to see ambulancemen putting fires out, are you? scratch

Walsh peeped on here and saw this story, even though it was reported on whingingworld yesterday.

If it's in the Town centre, it could well be where the old Courts were.

They'd have a job getting all the vehicles in the courtyard. STUPID BOY!

If you ask me, it'd be better as far away from the town centre as possible!

Yes, I agree. I also agree with Tonker that the town centre won't be a good wheeze.

Mesnes Park would be handy. And there's an duck pond to get a bit of water from if you're short.

You started it by suggesting the old courts.

It's as good a vacant lot as any in the town centre, unless Brocol house and the old MFI building behind took a demolishing.

Could he possibly be referring to the site of the old town hall?

And why is Brocol House so named? (I don't know the answer)

Yes, the old courts...Criminal not civil.

So you don't want them to knock down the grade II listed building that is known to every single Wiganer as 'The Old Courts'. Good! Well done you. Razz

And anyway, the Old Courts were also criminal at one time.
