This help will be available on Thursday mornings at 8:30am.  Please call the North West office on 03030 404040 for more information or to make arrangements.

You can also contact our Wigan Lock keepers direct on 01942 405774 if you have any questions or want to report an issue on the flight.  Our Wigan Flight customer operations team will endeavour to help with any issues in a timely fashion.  Please bear with us as we may already be dealing with other priority jobs.
