Wigan Council via their social media platforms shared an image of a familiar face earlier today. Pictured is Malcolm Garrett, outside of Pete Shelley’s former home in Leigh. Wigan Council had Malcolm unveil a blue plaque at the home. Something I am sure he was very honoured to do.
Today is the second anniversary of Pete’s passing. He is still very much missed by all. Today was a lovely way to pay tribute to his memory and legacy.
