The best of Bolton continues to be its people. Working in a public Library and Museum I get to hear many stories old and new, of pride, passion and love for our town.

I love Bolton because I just love the North of England. I’m from the North East, but the northern sense of humour is fantastic. We can all laugh at each other and ourselves and that’s what is so special about us.
