Because they offer us access to great health apps via this amazing new portal! Which means I can find apps for me, my patients and my family to help with their conditions. Would be good to share further and wider!

I love Bolton because of the beautiful countryside on our doorstep!


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.


We can come together when needed to help each other #communityspirit #communityspiritatitsbest

Despite its problems, which many northern towns have, due to government funding cuts, Bolton is still a nice place to live.


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 :)


Of the friendly people. Also I love our surrounding countryside. Also easy access to other parts of the country. Quite good public transport. Good theatre, library and museum/art gallery.

It welcomed me when I came to work here, it’s a great diverse opinionated, caring community that has a fabulous identity, and really embraces outsiders as part of the big Bolton family!

We are so very lucky to have such beautiful countryside right on our doorstep with amazing views and lots of wildlife to spot. We also have some lovely country parks if you don't want to be quite so wild.

Bolton has great special schools, charities and organisations that help to support our children who have additional needs and disabilities, making sure these children don't miss out on opportunities others may have.

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.

It is one of the biggest towns in the UK, and it is undoubtedly the best. A great industrial heritage surrounded by beautiful countryside but it's greatness lies in having the warmest and most friendly people you will find anywhere in the world. It's an ideal place to build a business given the amount of talent in the area and the travel links.
