LEIGH Hackspace is running the borough's first ever The Deal In Action Hack Weekend on March 5 and 6.

Held in association with Wigan Council, the event is open to people across the borough and invites them to present their ideas for improving the area with technology, data or computing.

People will group themselves into teams and then work on solving problems with technology over the weekend.

These ideas will then be presented to the public, as well as to computer programmers and developers.
