Our town has been welcoming newcomers since the 14th century and this says a lot about the overall character of the inhabitants of the place.

It welcomed my Mum and Dad when they arrived from Ireland and its people became friends and family to me and to my brothers, daughters and sons since.

I love Bolton because I can walk on the moors with my husband and my dog.

I am in the navy, & work away a lot, and there is nowhere in the word that calls to me like Bolton. It’s my home, & always will be. I love the people, the accent, all the great things to do & most of all, I love Bolton because it’s home. When I’ve been away a while the homesickness kicks in & I think about MY hometown & how I can’t wait to come home.

It's such a diverse place. Many different shops available and everybody is always smiling and with the investment into the town itself, it's massively improving and bringing people back to the great town of Bolton. The different world sports stars we have produced and the sports clubs including our beloved Bolton Wanderers FC :)

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.

I lived there for 6 years and I completed my studies in Bolton Institute of Higher Education from 1979 to 1985. I like its people, places like Queen's Park, Town Centre, Arndale Centre and so many places. Thanks to all Bolton community.

I love Bolton as there are plenty of hidden gems, everyone I pass who's out walking always seems happy and shocked that Bolton has a lot of green space.
