Over the years, you have all been reminded that this is <strong>NOT ALLOWED</strong>. Please, we do not want to have to place the cones back at the top of the drive as this&nbsp;delays staff getting into school but we will have to if certain parents do not stop doing this.</p> http://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/images/news/friendly-reminder.jpgWed, 08 Feb 2017 21:26:21 GMTMuscular Dystrophy UKhttp://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-01-18-muscular-dystrophy-ukhttp://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-01-18-muscular-dystrophy-uk<p>Muscular Dystrophy UK are holding a &#39;Go Orange Day&#39; and to support this charity we are asking the children to wear something orange on Friday 27th January 2017 and make a donation to the charity.&nbsp;</p> <p>We thank you for your support.&nbsp;</p> http://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/images/Mrs OB/MD_uk(1).pngWed, 18 Jan 2017 17:00:54 GMTChristingle Servicehttp://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-12-22-christingle-servicehttp://ashtonsaintwilfrids.wigan.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-12-22-christingle-service<p>A big thank you to all the families that attended Church on Monday evening and took part in our Christingle Service.
