The Fork & Brush Arts Café opens its doors to welcome veterans on Remembrance Sunday

To commemorate this year’s Remembrance Sunday, The Fork and Brush Arts Café will be open from 10 am to welcome those taking part in Sunday’s events with free hotpot offered to military veterans, dignitaries and those taking part in the parades.

The friendly Wigan Town Centre café serves breakfast, brunch & lunch, Monday – Friday but has decided to open its doors this weekend to honour the service and to remember those who sadly lost their lives.

Mark Morris, Operations Manager at The Old Courts, who is an army veteran, came up with the idea to feed those taking part in the parade as a mark of respect.

“Remembrance Day is very important day to the whole country, and it is particularly close to my heart. We wanted to honour the armed forces members who have not only died in their line of duty but those who have fought for their country too. I’d love to see a café full of people on Sunday and I’d also like to thank C&G Meat Wholesalers for donating all the meat.”

The Fork and Brush Arts Café is located at The Old Courts and can be accessed at Entrance 7 on Crawford Street and is situated opposite the Wigan Parish Church where much of Sunday’s events will take place.
