Welcome to Wigan Council’s remote access server 'Maypole'

New Remote Access Solution for Staff – Please Read!

We are in the process of shutting down Terminal Servers.

Pulse Secure Access Gateway is being rolled out to replace Maypole, Dolly, Bickershaw and Taylor.

This is a government requirement to ensure the security of our networks, you will require a VDI session to access Pulse.

You must transfer over to using the new solution by Monday 27th July unless there are exceptional circumstances as in the case of partners and councillors.

More information and a user guide can be found on the Intranet.
