I love Bolton because it is the place of my birth. I have had many lovely conversations with complete strangers because that's the kind of friendly people you come across everywhere you go. Natural beauty is on our doorstep.


I love Bolton because of the gorgeous countryside and parks.


I love Bolton because it became home when home was no longer safe.

It's where my home is; where my family are; where I've got great friends and great workmates; where my church is; where my team are; where we go shopping and where we go on fabulous walks. It's where the people are so friendly and it's where my heart is! I'm always so proud to say 'I'm from Bolton!'

I love Bolton because great parks, lovely countryside on everyone's doorstep all free for all ages, Bolton has the best people who will speak to you in the street and grip when needed.

Bolton is where I found my roots. Life wasn't great, but I came here and met my wife, had my three beautiful daughters and made a life for myself.

Matthew Barnes

It has some beautiful buildings, despite many empty units below some of them. Its beautiful countryside and choice of walks and cycle paths is huge. It has always had a good amount of music venues, entertainment and nightlife, this has now dwindled in the last 20 years, I hope that this will be boosted again with the new plans.

Sarah Morgan

It is the home of the Bolton Impact Trust, this organisation is now a nationally recognised leading Alternative Provision school, that looks after some of Bolton's most disadvantaged children. The staff are some of the most dedicated people I've had the privilege to meet. They need all the help we can to continue their incredible work.
