Do you know Bolton's Best? 

Winners Bolton's Best 2011

Has a member of council staff given outstanding service?

Or gone beyond the call of duty to help the public?

Residents can choose a member of council staff who they think has provided them with a great service for the Bolton’s Best awards. The awards celebrate and reward Bolton Council staff for the work they do to make a difference to the Bolton family.

As local residents, you will encounter a variety of council staff within the community on a regular basis. You can nominate any member of staff you feel has gone the extra mile to give an excellent service for the Best Customer Care 2012 award. From social care and keeping streets clean to planning applications and licensing, the range of services provided by the council to the public is vast.

There are eight awards altogether, with staff nominating colleagues, teams, or projects in the others. The costs of the ceremony are covered through sponsorship by De Vere Whites.

You can nominate a member of staff online, print and return the nomination form, or pick up a nomination form at council information points such as the One Stop Shop in Bolton Town Hall and post it to Bolton’s Best Awards, Corporate Organisational Development Team, Bolton Council, The Castle Hill Centre, Castleton Street, Bolton, BL2 2JW.

Nominations close on Friday 14 September.

How to make your nomination:

  • Be clear about why you think the person you are nominating is Bolton's best.
  • Provide us with their name, job title, and department 
  • Tell us why, in 100 words or less, you feel they deserve the award. 
  • Make sure your nomination arrives no later than Friday 14 September 
  • Email queries to or call 01204 338525.

What happens next:

The council's chief officers will look at all the nominations and narrow them down to a shortlist.

In November, you will be asked to vote for the winner of the Best Customer Care 2012 category. Votes from members of staff will be added to your choices.

All nominees will be told that they have been nominated at the end of October. Shortlisted nominees will be invited to the Bolton's Best awards ceremony in December, when the winners will be announced.
