Bolton's Best winners announced today 


The winners of our Bolton’s Best staff awards will be announced today Wednesday, 6 December.

The staff awards celebrate and reward the work council staff do to improve the quality of life for everyone in the Bolton family. They are one of the ways we acknowledge the hard work they do for our community.

It would not be possible to hold the ceremony without the support of our sponsors Bolton Whites Hotel and Agilisys. The hotel enables us to host the ceremony to celebrate your achievements, and to cover the costs of running the awards, our IT supplier Agilisys has once again generously agreed to be our sponsor.
