Bolton Council has introduced a new online service to provide information about the nearest events and activities to residents’ homes.
Residents are already able to type their postcode or address into the My Bolton section of the website and find out details of their next area forum, their council tax band and the nearest planning applications submitted to their address.
However, this new local directory section now also offers information on any local events or activities close to their address, from local playgroups to drama productions.
Councillor Linda Thomas, Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Corporate Resources, said: “The ‘My Bolton’ section of our website is an extremely effective and well-used resource which provides people with all sorts of information, from where their nearest doctors are to when the next area forum is in that area.
“We hope that this local directory which provides details of local events and activities is a useful addition and helps residents to join in events in their local communities.”
Local groups and organisations who want to enter their own events can go to the link on the right and upload details of the event. It will then be published on Bolton Council’s website as well as the Bolton Life website, which gives details of all events, groups and things happening across the borough.
